Invisible Slaves

W. Kurt Hauser discusses slavery around the world, with research and firsthand stories that reframe slavery as a modern-day crisis, not a historical phenomenon or third-world issue. Identifying four types of slavery—chattel slavery, debt bondage, forced labor, and sex slavery—he examines the efforts and failures of governments to address them. He explores the political, economic, geographic, and cultural factors that shape slavery today, illustrating the tragic human toll with individual stories.

Iraq after America

Iraq after America examines the new state, sectarian and secular factions, and political trends that have emerged in Iraq since the US-led invasion of 2003, presenting the various elements in the Iraqi political scene, as well as their interrelations. The book traces the origins of three key trends in recent Iraqi history (authoritarianism, sectarianism, and Islamist resistance) to explain the political and social forces that produced them, particularly during the intense period of civil war between 2003 and 2009, but also up to America’s departure in 2011. Along the way, the author looks at some of the most significant players in the new Iraq, explaining how they have risen to prominence, what they aim to do, and what that means for the United States and others.

Islamic Extremism and the War of Ideas

John Hughes examines lessons learned from the practice of public diplomacy—especially international broadcasting—in the cold war and tells how the United States could more effectively counter extremism, promote democracy, and improve understanding of itself in the Islamic world. He offers Indonesia as a successful example of the melding of democracy, Islam, and modernity and suggests that this country and other nations where Islam and democracy coexist—such as Turkey—could play a significant role in helping thwart Islamist extremism.

Israel and the Struggle over the International Laws of War

The author argues that Israel stands on the frontlines of a new struggle over the international laws of war and exposes abuses of law that have been promulgated by international human rights lawyers, UN bodies, and intellectuals to illegitimately circumscribe the right of liberal democracies to defend themselves against transnational terrorists. The Goldstone Report, which was published by the United Nations in September 2009, and the Gaza flotilla controversy, which erupted at the end of May 2010, are examples of those abuses. This book criticizes the flawed assumptions and defective claims arising from both the Goldstone Report and the Gaza flotilla controversy, showing how the legal principles and conclusions advanced by many of Israel's critics threaten not only Israel's national security interests but the United States' as well.
