Sovereign Territory: A Department 89 Case File

You Can't Run From Justice From Major Sophie Decker Take a peek inside one of Department 89's Top Secret Case Files A drunken US Embassy official in Berlin crashes his car into a playground and kills six German children. But when it emerges that he intends to exercise his right to diplomatic immunity to escape prosecution, that is one step too far for German Chancellor Claudia Meyer. The official is being protected by a corrupt US Ambassador, and it is up to Major Sophie Decker of Department 89 to find out what the scam is, and to use that information to force the ambassador to waive the diplomatic immunity. But as the heat intensifies, and an enraged German public lashes out against the US Embassy, will the German chancellor risk all-out war with the United States by violating their sovereign territory?

National Sovereignty

Sovereignty is a notion which has come to dominate our understanding of national and international affairs. Its history parallels the evolution of the modem state. However, today, when nations are very much dependent on each other, the idea of national sovereignty has acquired a different meaning. In recent years, questions have been raised as to the continuing significance of the state, the concept of which appears to be challenged and threatened by the impact of globalisation, technological changes, societal restructuring, neo-colonialism and ecological crises, among others. Questions raised include the relevance of national sovereignty in modern society, and its expression in terms of pre...

The King’s Concubine

Crown Prince Richard has been stuck in a loveless marriage for 12 years and to make matters worse, that marriage has failed to provide him with any heirs. Although he has a legitimate cause to seek an annulment, his cruel father will not hear of it. After all, he has younger brothers who can inherit his throne if he remains childless. When his father suddenly dies and Richard is made the new king with absolute power, his first official order is to revive an ancient law that allows the sovereign to take a legal concubine as a second consort if the queen is barren. But the only woman the King wants is his younger brother’s betrothed, the very beautiful, Lady Astrid. Can his love and devotion to her make up for turning her into the King’s Concubine?

Charles the Bold

On St. Andrew's Eve, in the year 1433, the good people of Dijon were abroad, eager to catch what glimpses they might of certain stately functions to be formally celebrated by the Duke of Burgundy. The mere presence of the sovereign in the capital of his duchy was in itself a gala event from its rarity. Various cities of the dominions agglomerated under his sway claimed his attentions successively. His residence was now here and now there, without long tarrying anywhere. His coming was usually very welcome. In times of peaceful submission to his behest, the city of his sojourn reaped many advantages besides the amusement of seeing her streets alive beyond their wont. In the outlay for the necessities and the luxuries of the peripatetic ducal court, the expenditures were lavish, and in the temporary commercial activity enjoyed by the merchants, the fact that the burghers' own contributions to this luxury were heavy, passed into temporary oblivion...

A Defence of the Secret Providence of God

This volume contains two of the lesser known, but nevertheless very significant, treatises of John Calvin. Any publication of the works of the great reformer and teacher is its own best justification, and needs no explanation or apology. The reprinting of this little volume, however, has an interesting history. Until 1929 Calvin’s Calvinism was virtually unknown in the United States. It had not been included in the Calvin Translation Society’s classic set of the works of John Calvin, but had been separately translated by Henry Cole and published in England, but not in the United States. In 1927 it was reprinted in England by the Sovereign Grace Union, of which the Reverend Henry Atherton...

The Germanic Empire

With Germany prior to the dissolution of the Roman power, the present compendium has no concern: the history of that period is, or ought to be, familiar to every reader. Our object is to contemplate that celebrated country as an Empire; but as its establishment must be traced to an era considerably anterior, a few pages by way of introduction may properly open the main subject.

Elizabeth Empress of Austria

The story of the life of Elizabeth of Bavaria, Empress of Austria and Queen of Hungary, is one of the saddest in the history of royalty, and in some respects recalls the story of the life of Marie Antoinette. Both their lives were sorrowful, both ended tragically, the one at the hands of an assassin, the other upon the guillotine. Elizabeth will not be remembered in history as a sovereign, for everything connected with the throne and with court life was distasteful to her, but rather as the beautiful, sorrowful daughter of the Wittelsbachs. She was not only one of the most beautiful women of her time, but an accomplished scholar and linguist, a good musician, and well versed in history, scie...
