Between the Wars (EP)

Between the Wars was an extended play released by Billy Bragg in 1985. It reached number 15 on the UK Singles Chart; the title track was inspired by the UK miners' strike. The choice of other songs on the record was relevant to the dispute - "Which Side Are You On?" is an updated version of the American pro-trade union song of the same title from the 1930s, whilst "It Says Here" is critical of the political bias of British newspapers, most of which opposed the strike. The proceeds from sales of the record were donated to the striking miners' fund. All four tracks are available on the Billy Bragg compilation album, Back to Basics, the 2006 reissue of Brewing Up with Billy Bragg. All tracks composed by Billy Bragg.

Polícia 24h

Polícia 24h or Polícia 24 Horas is a Brazilian reality show that shows the police actions carried out by the Military Police of São Paulo. The program was created by a partnership between Rede Bandeirantes; as the season progressed other departments from other regions of Brazil appeared on the show. Cable network A&E broadcasts the reality show. In December 2014, it left Rede Bandeirantes' programming schedule, being reprised in 2015 as a cover-up in the primetime slot. On March 24, 2016, the reality police was renewed for a seventh season, featuring corporations across the whole country; as of season seven, the format is under property of Warner Bros.' subsidiary. It is the Brazilian version of COPS, broadcast in Brazil by truTV. Cameramen are witness to the work of the professionals at the moment. No make-up, no actors, no fictitious stories: the protagonists of Police 24h are the community and the Police, in a series where despite the goal being the general welfare, the story doesn't always end well.

The program proposes a faithful record of the work of the police. It offers a panorama of the Police career, from the beginning until the moment they retire and cease to exercise the function from so many years; each of them is part of a family. The show used to rank third in the measurement of IBOPE for the Metropolitan Region of São Paulo; the audience reaches around only 3 points. Its peak was reached on October 21, 2010 when it showed the action of the Ostensive Rounds Tobias Aguiar department, it achieved 7 points. Reno 911

Defensive realism

Defensive neorealism is a structural theory derived from the school of neorealism in international relations theory. It finds its foundation in Kenneth Waltz's Theory of International Politics, in which Waltz argues that the anarchical structure of the international system encourages states to maintain moderate and reserved policies to attain security. In contrast, offensive realism assumes that states seek to maximize their power and influence to achieve security through domination and hegemony. Defensive neorealism asserts that aggressive expansion as promoted by offensive neorealists upsets the tendency of states to conform to the balance of power theory, thereby decreasing the primary objective of the state, which they argue is ensuring its security. While defensive realism does not deny the reality of interstate conflict, nor that incentives for state expansion do exist, it contends that these incentives are sporadic rather than endemic. Defensive neorealism points towards "structural modifiers" such as the security dilemma and geography, elite beliefs and perceptions to explain the outbreak of conflict.

Defensive neorealism is a structural theory, part of structural realism known as neorealism, a subset of the realist school of thought in International Relations theory. Neorealism therefore works from realism's five base theoretical assumptions as outlined by offensive neorealist scholar John J. Mearsheimer in "The False Promise of International Institutions"; these assumptions are: The international system is anarchic. States inherently possess some offensive military capability, which gives them the ability to hurt and destroy each other. States can never be certain about the intentions of other states; the basic motive driving states is survival. States think strategically about; these five assumptions drive neorealism's belief that state survival is attained through "self-help". However, neorealism departs from classical realism's other main assumption that it is the flaws and complexities of human nature that drive the international system. Instead, neorealists assert that the anarchy inherent to the structure of the international system is the driving force of international politics.

It is on these key neorealist assumptions that defensive and offensive neorealists base their competing understandings of state behavioural patterns. As Kenneth Waltz asserted in his seminal defensive neorealist text Theory of International Politics, defensive neorealists argue that the anarchic nature of the international system encourages states to undertake defensive and moderate policies, they argue that states are not intrinsically aggressive and that "the first concern of states is not to maximize power but to maintain their position in the system". This is the crucial point of departure from offensive neorealism, which instead argues that anarchy encourages states to increase state power vigorously, as "the world is condemned to perpetual great power competition". Defensive neorealists identify a number of problems regarding offensive neorealism's support of aggressive expansion of power. Building on Waltz's balance of power theory and the assumption that "balancing is more common than bandwagoning", defensive neorealists assert that states which strive to attain hegemony in the international system will be counterbalanced by other states seeking to maintain the status quo.

While offensive realists believe states inherently desire either global hegemony or local hegemony, defensive neorealists argue that states are socialised and aware of historical precedent, which defensive neorealists assert displays state aggression and expansion to fulfil the aim of hegemony as attracting resistance from other states. Aggression is therefore argued to be self-defeating in achieving the aim of security, which defensive neorealists posit to be the state's primary objective. Indeed, Jack Snyder asserts, "international anarchy punishes aggression; this assumption in turn, informs defensive neorealism's assertion that the benefits of conquest outweigh its negatives. Defensive neorealists state that the problems conquest faces are diverse, existing both during the opening phases of expansion and during occupation, they contend that the subjugation of a state's population is risky and difficult in the face of the modern concept of nationalism, which can provide an effective narrative of resistance if the state is conquered.

This increases the expensive process of occupation in societies that rely on freedom of movement and transportation for economic prosperity because these are vulnerable to sabotage and embargo. In addition, newly acquired infrastructure must be protected and rebuilt when destroyed, the defence of new borders must be consolidated, the possible resistance of local workers to contributing skilled labour to the new authorities, all combine to place heavy strain on the economic and production capabilities of the conquering state. In contrast to offensive neorealists, defensive neorealists assert that these strains outweigh the economic benefits states can attain from conquered territory and infrastructure. Defensive neorealists point to the disconnect between individual security and state security, which they believe offensive neorealists conflate. Defensive neorealists assert that "states are not as vulnerable as men are in a state of nature" and their destruction is a difficult and protracted task.

They contend that states major powers, can afford to wait for definitive evidence of attack rather than undertaking pre-emptive strikes or reacting inappropriately to inadvertent threats. This aspect is crucial, it allows the possibility of overcoming, or at least reducing, the impact of one of the prominent
