Hermosa Beach by Chris Miller

Book Description

Hermosa Beach has been one of Los Angeles County s most eclectic summertime destinations for vacationing families, surfers, sunbathers, fishermen, volleyball players, and other beachgoers. They ranged from students in search of one crazy summer to their spiritual forefathers and mothers who came, saw, and stayed year-round. The city grew through the 20th century from a train stop into a vital mix of residential housing with businesses strung along Pacific Coast Highway. The city has been homey enough to accommodate statesman William Jennings Bryant and television s iconic Ozzie and Harriet Nelson. Its nationally recognized nightclubs and other venues included the Biltmore Hotel; the Comedy & Magic Club; and the legendary Lighthouse, home of West Coast jazz."

Struggle to Save the Soviet Economy by Chris Miller Struggle to Save the Soviet Economy, Hardback (December 2016)

Why did the Soviet economy suddenly collapse in the late 1980s, only a few years after Mikhail Gorbachev came to power? In this groundbreaking study, Chris Miller shows that although Gorbachev and his allies sought to learn from China's economic reforms under Deng Xiaoping, their efforts to revitalize Soviet socialism proved much less successful.

Environmental Rights by Chris Miller Environmental Rights, Paperback (August 2014)

This volume offers perspectives on contemporary debates over rights and environmental issues, criticizing the traditional ecocentric formulation and the view that it is meaningful to speak of environmental rights as a sub-set of human rights.

War on Terror by Chris Miller War on Terror, Paperback (July 2009)

This book covers the many topics of 'the war on terror' from legal, philosophical, economic and historical perspectives. The dialogue form of the book (essay-response) allows a broad representation of views, covering the situation in the Middle East, national security, politics of intervention, human rights, torture and the motives of the Iraq War.
