That's nine of twelve of the books I've identified for my potential dissertation on private military/security companies, and four of twelve books on the Dhofar Rebellion. It looks like a few more of the books on the Dhofar Rebellion should be available either from Amazon UK, or hopefully through interlibrary loan through the University. This should at least get me started, though, and it's a lot better than trying to carry that volume of literature overseas. I also got A Savage War of Peace by Alistair Horne as well, thus saving myself the weight of carrying my physical copy with me. As it turns out, I think I could have bought some or even all of my travel guides on Kindle. I won't replace them, since the whole point of buying them was for the trip and I've already spent the money.
Hey, by the way, has anybody ever noticed that industry has basically invented a ton of the coolest stuff from Star Trek? Like the tablet computer and the mobile phone? Totally from Star Trek. Just sayin'.
