The Economic Impact of the Iraq War and Higher Military Spending

In order to get an approximation of the economic impact of the increase in U.S. military
spending associated with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, CEPR commissioned the economic
forecasting company Global Insight to run a simulation with its macroeconomic model. It
produced a simulation of the impact of an increase in annual U.S. military spending equal
to 1 percent of GDP, approximately the actual increase in spending compared with the pre-war
budget. Global Insight's simulation shows higher military spending raises interest rates,
which reduces net exports, housing construction and car sales, thereby slowing the economy
and job creation.

Report: Sharing the Wealth - Beyond the American Way

Here’s some food for thought: we in the United States are reaping the benefits of continued
technological, medical and agricultural advancements, and yet nearly two-thirds of the
world’s countries are not. And while some have access to a partial spectrum of benefits,
one third of the world can barely tap into them at all.

Now the plot thickens: after the Bush administration’s 2001, 2002 and 2003 tax cuts, the
savings enjoyed by U.S. households above the $500,000 bracket alone amounted to $50 billion
per year. Compare that to the total of $15 billion that the administration gave in foreign
aid in 2004.

While foreign aid is certainly not a panacea, it is a first step. And the fact is, the
United States is not stepping up to the plate. While our middle and upper classes are
planning summer vacations and buying second homes, more than six million children die every
year from preventable diseases. How can we ensure that our world’s resources are a bit
more evenly distributed?

Of course, it’s never easy to discuss such issues on a global scale. When are we imposing
“Western” standards on other countries and when are we simply promoting basic standards
of living to which everyone should have access? Do we really want to get two-thirds of
the world on the same “track” as the

United States and other developed countries, when our ways of life are endangering the
world’s environment and collective pool of resources?

All of these questions are worth asking; they should not be swept under the rug. But when
people are going hungry, when they lack access to potable water, when they’re dying from
preventable and treatable diseases, we need to momentarily set aside such questions to
address more pressing ones. Why aren’t we doing more? What more can we do? And how can
it be done effectively?

The Israeli-Hezbollah War of 2006: The Media as a Weapon in Asymmetrical Conflict

Based on content analysis of global media and interviews with many diplomats and
journalists, this paper describes the trajectory of the media from objective observer to
fiery advocate, becoming in fact a weapon of modern warfare. The paper also shows how an
open society, Israel, is victimized by its own openness and how a closed sect, Hezbollah,
can retain almost total control of the daily message of journalism and propaganda.

Hitler's Carmaker The Inside Story of How General Motors Helped Mobilize the Third Reich

In a four-part, 10,000 word, special investigative series, Edwin Black chronicles General
Motors extensive relationship with Nazi Germany. GM's Opel was the largest car and truck
maker in the Third Reich. When Hitler came to power, his nation was still primarily a
horse-drawn country. From the outset, GM consciously mass produced cars and truck for the
German military, becoming a major and indispensable spear of Nazi rearmament. This included
the Blitz truck which became the mainstay of the Blitzkrieg that conquered Europe. GM
concealed its American control of Opel through special executives committees and board
directorates. After the War, GM took all the profit, including that gained from slave labor.
After a Congressional investigation, GM tried to obscure the facts and pressured Washington
about a special report on the company's activities. To this day, the company frustrates
research efforts into its protracted and profitable involvement in Nazi genocide. The
series, published in various sizes and edited formats, was based on Chapter 10 of Internal
Combustion and additional new research.

Economics, Religion and the Decline of Europe

This article asks whether there is any casual connection between the

contemporaneous decline in industriousness and religiosity in Europe over the

past 25 years. In the United States working hours and levels of religious faith and
observance have held steady or even increased over this period. But in most European
countries they have declined together. Could this be a posthumous vindication of Max Weber’s
thesis about the Protestant work ethic and the rise of capitalism? Though there clearly
are some important links between religion and economic behaviour, the article concludes
that the evidence does not perfectly fit Weber’s theory, which emphasised abstinence rather
than consumption as a determinant of economic development.

Supreme Court Of The United States

Lawrence V. Texas (02-102) 539 U.S. 558 (2003)

41 S. W. 3d 349, reversed and remanded.

Lawrence et al. v. Texas

Certiorari To The Court Of Appeals Of Texas, Fourteenth District

No. 02—102. Argued March 26, 2003–Decided June 26, 2003

Responding to a reported weapons disturbance in a private residence, Houston police entered
petitioner Lawrence’s apartment and saw him and another adult man, petitioner Garner,
engaging in a private, consensual sexual act. Petitioners were arrested and convicted of
deviate sexual intercourse in violation of a Texas statute forbidding two persons of the
same sex to engage in certain intimate sexual conduct. In affirming, the State Court of
Appeals held, inter alia, that the statute was not unconstitutional under the Due Process
Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The court considered Bowers v. Hardwick, 478 U.S. 186,
controlling on that point.

http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct-cgi/get-const?amendmentxiv

http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct-cgi/get-us-cite?478+186

Held: The Texas statute making it a crime for two persons of the same sex to engage in
certain intimate sexual conduct violates the Due Process Clause. Pp. 3—18.

accepted if new strategies for solutions are to be found.

What's Wrong With Supermarkets?

Strip lights, endless queues of strangers and shelves of packets, fake smiles from bored
checkout assistants - Isn't there a better way to get our food?

Supermarkets wield immense power over the way we grow, buy and eat our food. They are shaping
our environment, our health and the way we interact socially. These changes have gone
unchallenged because consumers have been sucked into superstore lifestyles, persuaded that
the opportunity to select from six different brands of cut-price oven chips at three in
the morning represents choice and value.

But the tide may be turning. Unease at the true cost of supermarket food is spreading among
consumers, who are beginning to join forces with the farmers and workers who have always
know that supermarket 'choice' is a bad deal. This booklet aims to help campaigners get
to grips with the reality of supermarket domination and argues why we must start looking
for alternatives.

Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids in America

Americans have long maintained that a man’s home is his castle and that he has the right
to defend it from unlawful intruders. Unfortunately, that right may be disappearing. Over
the last 25 years, America has seen a disturbing militarization of its civilian law
enforcement, along with a dramatic and unsettling rise in the use of paramilitary police
units (most commonly called Special Weapons and Tactics, or SWAT) for routine police work.
The most common use of SWAT teams today is to serve narcotics warrants, usually with forced,
unannounced entry into the home.

These increasingly frequent raids, 40,000 per year by one estimate, are needlessly
subjecting nonviolent drug offenders, bystanders, and wrongly targeted civilians to the
terror of having their homes invaded while they’re sleeping, usually by teams of heavily
armed paramilitary units dressed not as police officers but as soldiers. These raids bring
unnecessary violence and provocation to nonviolent drug offenders, many of whom were guilty
of only misdemeanors. The raids terrorize innocents when police mistakenly target the wrong
residence. And they have resulted in dozens of needless deaths and injuries, not only of
drug offenders, but also of police officers, children, bystanders, and innocent suspects.

This paper presents a history and overview of the issue of paramilitary drug raids, provides
an extensive catalogue of abuses and mistaken raids, and offers recommendations for reform.

Secrecy in the Bush Administration

Rep. Henry A. Waxman has released a comprehensive examination of secrecy in the Bush
Administration. The report analyzes how the Administration has implemented each of our
nation’s major open government laws. It finds that there has been a consistent pattern
in the Administration’s actions: laws that are designed to promote public access to
information have been undermined, while laws that authorize the government to withhold
information or to operate in secret have repeatedly been expanded. The cumulative result
is an unprecedented assault on the principle of open government.

Envoy's damning verdict revealed as violence takes Gaza closer to civil war

The highest ranking UN official in Israel has warned that American pressure has "pummelled
into submission" the UN's role as an impartial Middle East negotiator in a damning
confidential report.

The 53-page "End of Mission Report" by Alvaro de Soto, the UN's Middle East envoy, presents
a devastating account of failed diplomacy and condemns the sweeping boycott of the
Palestinian government.

The Progressive Majority: Why a Conservative America is a Myth

For anyone interested in where the American public really stands on the big issues that
distinguish progressives from conservatives -- including the issues at the forefront of
today’s political debates -- “The Progressive Majority: Why a Conservative America Is a
Myth” offers hard facts and analysis based on decades of data from some of the nation’s
most respected and nonpartisan public opinion researchers. This is the evidence that
political leaders have a mandate to pursue bold, progressive policies.

This report by the Campaign for America’s Future and Media Matters for America shows that
in study after study, solid majorities of Americans take progressive stands on a full
spectrum of issues, from bread-and-butter economics to the so-called “values” issues where
conservatives claim preeminence.

Secret Agenda: The United States Government, Nazi Scientists, and Project Paperclip, 1945
to 1990

Here, Hunt, a former CNN investigative reporter, tells a shocking tale: how a branch of
the US government deliberately thwarted attempts to bring to justice Nazi scientists who
were guilty of war crimes, and who, in at least one case, actually participated in fresh
atrocities in the US. While it is common knowledge that the US used Nazi scientists during
the cold war, Hunt reveals for the first time that the project to recruit and utilize Nazi
scientific talent- -code-named "Paperclip''--continued until 1973. In addition, while
former Nazi scientists (like Werner von Braun) contributed greatly to the development of
rockets, jet planes, and other prodigies of technology, Hunt convincingly demonstrates
that several such scientists also participated in "Dachau-like experiments on over seven
thousand U.S. soldiers'' on the effects of LSD and other chemicals at Edgewood, Maryland,
between 1947 and 1966. Moreover, Hunt explains that the US avidly recruited many Nazi
scientists, despite their war crimes--including utilization of slave labor and execution
of prisoners--and despite the continuing devotion of many to Nazi ideology. Hunt also
relates the sordid details of the intelligence community's attempts to prevent bringing
these scientists to justice. And, in at least one case, she shows that the program was
inimical to US interests--the man who conceived and ran Paperclip was ultimately convicted
of selling American defense secrets to the Soviet Union. An engrossing examination of how
a small clique of defense and intelligence officials deliberately subverted stated US
policy. (Eight pages of b&w photographs.)

Germany's Secret Weapons in World War II

By Paul Wood and Roger Ford

The German Air Force, the Luftwaffe, was held in high esteem in National Socialist Party

The Hunt for Zero Point: Inside the Classified World of Antigravity Technology

Imagine the power, economic and military, that would fall into the hands of the person
who figured out how to bypass the ordinary laws of physics, defy gravity, and travel near
the speed of light.

Though it sometimes seems to fall in the realm of science fiction more than pure science,
aviation-technology journalist Nick Cook's intriguing tale involves the long quest to
develop antigravity vehicles and the sometimes eccentric characters who have played a part
in it: Nazi rocket engineers, backyard inventors, NASA scientists, conspiracy theorists,
and UFO watchers among them. The last group figures, Cook explains, because the ideal craft
for "electrogravitic reaction" would take the form of a disc, a design consideration seen
in the shape of current stealth aircraft. It could just be, the author suggests, that what
witnesses have taken to be flying saucers might instead be antigravity-aircraft
prototypes, though he cautions that "the subject is too complex ... to conform to a single
explanation."

And therein hangs a good part of this always interesting, if admittedly speculative, story,
which, regardless of the truth of the matter (or, perhaps, antimatter), will appeal to
techies and Trekkies alike.

World Drug Report 2007

The World Drug Report presents the most comprehensive statistical view of today's illicit
drug situation. This year's edition reports signs of long-term containment of the global
problem. However, the overall trend masks contrasting regional situations, which the
report examines in detail. For instance, while an impressive multi-year reduction in opium
poppy cultivation continued in South-East Asia, Afghanistan recorded a large increase in
2006. More interceptions of cocaine and heroin shipments across the world have played an
important part in stabilizing the market. However, as we witness successes in some areas,
challenges appear in others. Although drug abuse levels are stabilizing globally,
countries along major and new trafficking routes, such as those now going through Africa,
may face increasing levels of drug consumption. The World Drug Report 2007 also discusses
a possible method to better assess and monitor the role played by organized crime in
transnational drug trafficking.

“And Thou Shalt Spread …”

Construction and development of settlements beyond the official

limits of jurisdiction

A special report presented by the “Peace Now” Settlement Watch
One of the recurring claims of the various Israel government spokespersons over the past
few decades regarding construction in the settlements was that it only occurs within the
“boundaries of the settlement”. Words of that nature were even uttered by Prime Minister
Olmert during a recent meeting with Abdullah, the King of Jordan (May 15, 2007), during
which he promised that: “the construction of settlements is only being carried out within
the approved designated lines”. However, through the years, Israel’s spokespersons made
deceptive and manipulative use of the concept of “settlement areas” in order to continue,
in fact, to make it possible for settlements to grow and develop without almost any
restrictions. The construction in settlements “within their boundaries” continued, in
contradiction to the commitment of those very same governments to maintain “political
restraint”, where the vision of a future Palestinian state plays a major role. In this
context, it is important to remember that the State of Israel’s official position is that
no new settlement has been established anywhere in the West Bank for over a decade. As
an aside, we should like to add that this was the reason that a need arose for the
establishment of “outposts”, where the goal was to circumvent the ban on the establishment
of official new settlements.

This report was written in order to achieve three goals:

A. Expose the system of considerations which guided the architects of the settlement
project when they drew up the boundaries of settlement jurisdiction;

B. Discuss the way that Israeli governments used these jurisdiction to promote and
reinforce their political goals, first and foremost of which was the expansion of the
settlement project; and

C. Provide an accurate comparison between the official and actual boundaries of the
settlements.

Crisis in Turkey: Just another bump on the road to Europe?

Occasional Paper nº 67

The ongoing crisis in Turkey must be seen against the background of a bifurcated society,
a weak political system, a low-level insurgency in Eastern Anatolia and a
military-dominated power elite steeped in a state ideology known as Kemalism. Kemalists
perceive political Islam, Kurdish nationalism and European liberalism as their main
challengers. Therefore, and for other reasons explained in this Occasional Paper, a
confrontation between the Justice and Development Party (AKP), a party that has its roots
in political Islam, and the military was to be expected at some point in time. Already
in 2003 and 2004 the military actively considered ways of ousting the AKP from power. But
the military could only muster public support once ‘Euro-fatigue’ increased in Turkey and
when the fears of the secular middle class regarding a perceived AKP Islamist ‘hidden agenda’
became strong enough to drive them out into the streets to protest.

As will be shown in this paper, the ‘creeping Islamisation’ of Turkish society is indeed
a cause for concern, but the AKP seems to play only a minor role in this, if indeed it
plays a role at all. On the other hand, the military’s embrace of the secular aspects of
Kemalism seems a little odd if one takes its role in supporting Islam after the coup d’état
of 1980 into account. However, the current standoff has less to do with political Islam
per se than with the powerful role of the military and its insistence that it will not
accept a candidate with Islamist roots and a pro-EU reform agenda as President and
Commander-in-Chief of the Turkish Republic.

Military Inc.

Inside Pakistan's Military Economy

Writing about the military in Pakistan can be risky business and the author of this book
has shown tremendous courage in publishing this important work. However, the merit of this
book is not because it is daring but rather because of the intellectual rigor and empirical
detail provided. Unlike anti-establishment provocateurs who can often claim courage of
conviction but not much else, Dr. Siddiqa has provided us with a well-substantiated account
of financial hegemony in the military that deserves applause. While recognizing the vital
importance of the military itself, the book unravels how essential security can be easily
manipulated to accumulate wealth for a powerful elite.

The author starts with a structural premise that defines the phenomenon of "milbus" as
"military capital used for the personal benefit of the military fraternity, especially
the officer cadre, which is not recorded as part of the defence budget." She then goes
on to situate this concept within the larger literature on the military industrial complex.
Her lucid prose is also augmented by clear, tables, organizational charts, graphs and Venn
diagrams. Her findings are staggering: for example, the amount of land owned by military
officers through subsidized schemes amounts to $4.6 billion. The military pensions being
offered are five times the amount for civilian officers. The role of the Fauji Foundation
and other military organizations in running commercial enterprises that range from cereal
manufacturing to running schools is astounding.

The usual argument given by proponents of milbus is that the military is the most
disciplined organization and can do everything more efficiently. Yet, this logic is defied
by most of the world's leading economic powers where development has occurred through
private enterprise by educated and responsible citizens. Perhaps the author could have
spent more time in evaluating these arguments. Nevertheless, given the range and scope
of the matter at hand, Dr. Siddiqa has done a marvelous job with this manuscript. One can
only hope the military will not feel threatened by this constructive criticism and use
the the book as a means for initiating reform.

Dirty Little Secrets of World War II:

Military Information No One Told You...

This book is only partly about "dirty little secrets"; it is mostly a collection of
unfamiliar information about the war, presented in some 300 briefs. Typical of the entries
in these entertaining pages is a succinct account of the German "counterfeit offensive,"
in which an attempt was made to flood Britain with fake pound notes; and a comparison between
American and German armies at squad, battalion and division level. In the intriguing trivia
section, one learns that Gen. Douglas MacArthur was related to President Franklin Roosevelt
and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and that participants in the battle for
Guadalcanal included a 12-year-old American sailor. As to the dirty little secrets, here
are a few examples: Australian stevedores deliberately obstructed the U.S. war effort at
times; disease was responsible for nearly half the war deaths; Allied bombers caused far
less damage to the enemy than is generally supposed. Dunnigan is the author of The Complete
Wargames Handbook; Nofi wrote Napoleon at War.

The Cost of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Other Global

War on Terror Operations Since 9/11

Additional war costs for the next 10 years could total about $472 billion if troop levels
fall to 30,000 by 2010, or $919 billion if troop levels fall to 70,000 by about 2013. If
these estimates are added to already appropriated amounts, total funding about $980 billion
to $1.4 trillion by 2017.

Invisible Resistance to Tyranny: How to Lead a Secret Life of Insurgency in an Increasingly
Unfree World (e-Book)

What is invisible resistance to tyranny? It is an underground movement of secret freedom
fighters, each acting individually and independently to ignore, evade, resist and thwart
the increasingly heavy hand of government power. Invisible resisters do not join protest
groups, stand on street corners making speeches or run with a mob throwing rocks at police
vehicles. Rather, they make up a collective silent insurgency that tyrants won't be able
to put down because they won't be able to find it. Government enforcers will fruitlessly
look for organizations with no members, commanders who aren't there, secret headquarters
that don't exist and couriers that carry no messages. Invisible Resistance to Tyranny is
both a manifesto and manual for everyday citizens who are alarmed by the never-ending
encroachment upon the individual freedoms recognized by the Bill of Rights and who want
to do something about it now before it comes down to a choice between violent revolution
and total submission. It outlines a progressive program of resistance that anyone can
undertake without having to protest in the streets, go on hunger strikes or take up arms.

It tells how to:

-- Be a "bad" citizen while still being a good neighbor.

-- Identify and nurture sympathizers and build a network of invisible resisters.

-- Confront and convert "government supremacists" to your side.

-- Disrespect politicians and bureaucrats without drawing attention to yourself.

-- Actively resist within today's system through such avenues as taxes, guns, juries and
schools.
It then provides ideas for the many paths of invisible resistance to tyranny - intelligence
collection and dissemination, propaganda, support for active operations and, if it should
ever come down to it, direct operations against a totalitarian regime.

Durand Line

A jagged line drawn across the Hindu Kush by British diplomat Sir Henry Mortimer Durand
in 1893, separating British-controlled India from Afghanistan, became the basis for the
present 1,640-mile (2,640-kilometer) border between Pakistan and Afghanistan. Afghanistan
hasn't formally recognized the border since Pakistan was created in 1947, and the Pashtun
never have. They move back and forth between the two countries virtually at will.

Giant Oil Fields - The Highway to Oil: Giant Oil Fields and their Importance for Future
Oil Production

Since the 1950s, oil has been the dominant source of energy in the world. The cheap supply
of oil has been the engine for economic growth in the western world. Since future oil demand
is expected to increase, the question to what extent future production will be available
is important.
The belief in a soon peak production of oil is fueled by increasing oil prices. However,
the reliability of the oil price as a single parameter can be questioned, as earlier times
of high prices have occurred without having anything to do with a lack of oil. Instead,
giant oil fields, the largest oil fields in the world, can be used as a parameter.

A giant oil field contains at least 500 million barrels of recoverable oil. Only 507, or
1 % of the total number of fields, are giants. Their contribution is striking: over 60
% of the 2005 production and about 65 % of the global ultimate recoverable reserve (URR).

However, giant fields are something of the past since a majority of the largest giant fields
are over 50 years old and the discovery trend of less giant fields with smaller volumes
is clear. A large number of the largest giant fields are found in the countries surrounding
the Persian Gulf.

The domination of giant fields in global oil production confirms a concept where they govern
future production. A model, based on past annual production and URR, has been developed
to forecast future production from giant fields. The results, in combination with forecasts
on new field developments, heavy oil and oil sand, are used to predict future oil
production.

In all scenarios, peak oil occurs at about the same time as the giant fields peak. The
worst-case scenario sees a peak in 2008 and the best-case scenario, following a 1.4 % demand
growth, peaks in 2018.

Enlisting Madison Avenue: The Marketing Approach to Earning Popular Support in Theaters
of Operation

Virtually every action, message, and decision of a military force shapes the opinions of
an indigenous population: strategic communication, treatment of civilians at vehicle
checkpoints, and the accuracy or inaccuracy of aerial bombardment. Themes of U.S. goodwill
mean little if its actions convey otherwise. Consequently, a unified message in both word
and deed is fundamental to success. Business marketing practices provide a useful framework
for improving U.S. military efforts to shape the attitudes and behaviors of local
populations in a theater of operations as well as those of a broader, international
audience. Enlisting Madison Avenue extracts lessons from these business practices and
adapts them to U.S. military efforts, developing a unique approach to shaping that has
the potential to improve military-civilian relations, the accuracy of media coverage of
operations, communication of U.S. and coalition objectives, and the reputation of U.S.
forces in theater and internationally. Foremost among these lessons are the concepts of
branding, customer satisfaction, and segmentation of the target audience, all of which
serve to maximize the impact and improve the outcome of U.S. shaping efforts.

Rising to the humanitarian challenge in Iraq

Armed violence is the greatest threat facing Iraqis, but the population is also
experiencing another kind of crisis of an alarming scale and severity. Eight million people
are in urgent need of emergency aid; that figure includes over two million who are displaced
within the country, and more than two million refugees. Many more are living in poverty,
without basic services, and increasingly threatened by disease and malnutrition. Despite
the constraints imposed by violence, the government of Iraq, the United Nations, and
international donors can do more to deliver humanitarian assistance to reduce unnecessary
suffering. If people’s basic needs are left unattended, this will only serve to further
destabilise the country.

De Beers Funds Training Centre In Attawapiskat
De Beers’ program to clear-cut boreal forest and open pit mine the Nishnawbe Aski Nation
is not only ripping apart the land; court battles, corruption and greed are tearing apart
the people. De Beers’ violated treaties and trespassed; helicopters and drill rigs
destroyed the spring goose hunt on which the community depends for winter food. De Beers’
pumping out boreal swamps means salination and sludge spoiling the Attawapiskat River
fishing. Some 260,000 hectares of pristine Canadian wildernesses will be devastated for
diamonds.

The Fraudulent War

From its first days in office the Administration of George W.

Bush meant to launch military attacks against both Afghanistan

and Iraq.

This is beyond dispute. The mainstream press has not seen fit

to dig out the story, but it is fully documented elsewhere.

But the Bush Administration could not launch overt acts of

military aggression without a credible justification— credible

politically at home and diplomatically abroad.

The terrorist attacks in September of 2001 provided the

Administration a spectacular opportunity to conceal its

intentions, to disguise the true nature of the coming

conflicts, and to launch its premeditated wars. The

opportunity was seized in a heartbeat.

The Administration would call its enterprise the “Global War

on Terror.”

Are We Winning? Measuring Progress in the Struggle Against Violent Jihadism"

Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, U.S. foreign policy has focused largely
on confronting the violent jihadist threat worldwide. There have been numerous successes
and failures over the past six years in this so-called "war on terror."

The American Security Project has developed ten criteria to measure progress – or lack
of progress – in the struggle against violent jihadism. These metrics are designed to be
both reproducible and as objective as possible. They are intended to comprise a holistic
approach, examining causes and processes associated with violent jihadism, in addition
to outcomes.

On balance, these metrics indicate that the United States is not winning the "war on
terror." The lack of measurable progress on most indices, the collapse of international
public support for the United States, and the dramatic increase in jihadist violence since
2003 paint a bleak picture.

From Empire to Nation-State: Explaining Wars in the Modern World, 1816–2001
The existing quantitative literature on war takes the independent nation-state as the
selfevident unit of analysis and largely excludes other political types from
consideration. In contrast, the authors argue that the change in the institutional form
of states is itself a major cause for war. The rise of empires and the global spread of
the nation-state are the most important institutional transformations in the modern age.
To test this hypothesis, the authors introduce a new data set that records the outbreak
of war in fixed geographic territories from 1816 to 2001, independent of the political
entity in control of a territory. Analysis of this data set demonstrates that wars are
much more likely during and because of these two transformations. For the transformation
to the modern nation-state, the authors confirm this hypothesis further with logit
regressions that control for variables that have been robustly significant in previous
research. The results provide support for the main mechanisms that explain this time
dependency. Modern nationstates are ruled in the name of a nationally defined people, in
contrast to empires, which govern to spread a faith across the world, to bring civilization
to backward people, or to advance the world revolutionary cause. The institution of the
nation-state thus introduces incentives for political elites to privilege members of the
national majority over ethnic minorities, and for minority elites to mobilize against such
political discrimination. The resulting power struggles over the ethno-national character
of the state may escalate into civil wars. Interstate wars can result from attempts to
protect co-nationals who are politically excluded in neighboring states. The reported
research thus provides a corrective to mainstream approaches, which exclude ethnic and
nationalist politics as factors that would help understanding the dynamics of war.

The War On Freedom: How and Why America was Attacked, September 11th, 2001 (e-Book)

A disturbing expose of the American government's hidden agenda, before and after the
September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. A wide range of documents show US officials knew
in advance of the 'Boeing bombing' plot, yet did nothing. Did the attacks fit in with plans
for a more aggressive US foreign policy? Nafeez Ahmed examines the evidence, direct and
circumstantial, and lays it before the public in chilling detail: how FBI agents who
uncovered the hijacking plot were muzzled, how CIA agents trained Al Qaeda members in terror
tactics, how the Bush family profited from its business connections to the Bin Ladens,
and from the Afghan war. A 'must read' for anyone seeking to understand America's New War
on Terror.

Sex Differences in Romantic Kissing Among College Students: An Evolutionary Perspective

This study provides a descriptive account of kissing behavior in a large sample of
undergraduate college students and considers kissing in the context of both short-term
and long-term mating relationships. Kissing was examined as a mate assessment device, a
means of promoting pair bonds, and a means of inducing sexual arousal and receptivity.
A total 1,041 college students completed one of three questionnaires measuring kissing
preferences, attitudes, styles, and behaviors. Results showed that females place more
importance on kissing as a mate assessment device and as a means of initiating, maintaining,
and monitoring the current status of their relationship with a long-term partner. In
contrast, males place less importance on kissing, especially with short-term partners,
and appear to use kissing to increase the likelihood of having sex. The results suggest
that kissing may play an important role as an adaptive courtship/mating ritual.

Ammunition Shortages Experienced In operation Iraqi Freedom: Causes And Solutions

During the conduct of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) in 2003, there were several reports
of ammunition shortages experienced by combat units. Sometime between the end of the Cold
War and OIF, the management of ammunition was inadequate, resulting in these shortages
after a relatively short campaign. This Strategic Research Project examines the possible
causes of the ammunition shortages and recommends possible solutions. This examination
will look into the possible reasons which led to the shortages experienced in Iraq, the
requirements, determination process, past procurements, inventory status, and what the
Army did to fix the problem. The research done provides a basis for recommendations that
can help prevent shortages of small arms ammunition in the future

Coalition Provisional Authority Order Number 17 (Revised)

Status Of The Coalition Provisional Authority, MNF - Iraq,

Certain Missions And Personnel In Iraq

Order 17 is a document well worth reading. It essentially granted to every foreigner in
the country connected to the occupation enterprise the full freedom of the land, not to
be interfered with in any way by Iraqis or any Iraqi political or legal institution.
Foreigners -- unless, of course, they were jihadis or Iranians -- were to be "immune from
any form of arrest or detention other than by persons acting on behalf of their Sending
States," even though American and coalition forces were to be allowed the freedom to arrest
and detain in prisons and detention camps of their own any Iraqis they designated worthy
of that honor. (The present prison population of American Iraq is reputed to be at least
24,500 and rising.)

http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/gallery/2007/sep/21/iraq.internationalnews?picture=330
787966

All foreigners involved in the occupation project were to be granted "freedom of movement
without delay throughout Iraq," and neither their vessels, vehicles, nor aircraft were
to be "subject to registration, licensing or inspection by the [Iraqi] Government." Nor
in traveling would foreign diplomat, soldier, consultant, or security guard, or any of
their vehicles, vessels, or planes be subject to "dues, tolls, or charges, including
landing and parking fees," and so on. And don't forget that on imports, including
"controlled substances," there were to be no customs fees (or inspections), taxes, or much
of anything else; nor was there to be the slightest charge for the use of Iraqi
"headquarters, camps, and other premises" occupied, nor for the use of electricity, water,
or other utilities. And then, of course, there was that "International Zone," now better
known as the Green Zone, whose control was carefully placed in the hands of the
Multinational Force or MNF (essentially, the Americans and their contractors) exactly as
if it had been the international part of Shanghai, or Portuguese Macao, or British Hong
Kong in the nineteenth century.

Promulgated on the eve of the "return of sovereignty," Order 17 gave new meaning to the
term "Free World." It was, in essence, a get-out-of-jail-free card in perpetuity.

Above all else, Bremer freed an already powerful shadow army run out of private security
outfits like Blackwater USA that, by now, has grown, according to recent reports, into
a force of 20,000 to 50,000 or more hired guns.

http://www.tomdispatch.com/post/174780/scahill_a_democratic_sell_out_on_bush_s_mercen
aries

These private soldiers, largely in the employ of the Pentagon or the U.S. State Department
-- and so operating on U.S. taxpayer dollars -- were granted the right to act as they pleased
with utter impunity anywhere in the country.

More than three years later, the language of Order 17, written in high legalese, remains
striking when it comes to the contractors. (The man who, according to the Washington Post,
composed the initial draft of the document, Lawrence T. Peter, is, perhaps unsurprisingly,
now director of the Private Security Company Association of Iraq, which "represents at
least 50 security companies.")

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/09/19/AR2007091902503.html

Order 17 begins on private security firms with a stated need "to clarify the status of....
certain International Consultants, and certain contractors in respect of the Government
and the local courts." But the key passage is this:

[I]"Contractors shall not be subject to Iraqi laws or regulations in matters relating to
the terms and conditions of their contracts… Contractors shall be immune from Iraqi legal
processes with respect to acts performed by them pursuant to the terms and conditions of
a Contract or any sub-contract thereto… Certification by the Sending State that its
Contractor acted pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Contract shall, in any Iraqi
legal process, be conclusive evidence of the facts so certified…"[/I]In other words, when,
in June 2004, Bremer handed over "sovereignty" to an Iraqi "government" lodged in the
foreign-controlled Green Zone and left town as fast as he could, he essentially handed
over next to nothing. He had already succeeded in making Iraq a "free" country, as only
the Bush administration might have defined freedom: free of taxes, duties, tolls,
accountability, or responsibility of any kind, no matter what Americans or their allies
and hirelings did or what they took. In Iraq, in a twist on the nightmare language of
Orwell's dystopian novel 1984, freedom meant theft.

When it came to the Iraqi government, freedom also meant the freedom not to be informed.
Take an example: The U.S. military recently announced that it was about to build a new
base in Iraq, right up against the Iranian border, that would be ready for operation this
November.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20070910/pl_afp/usiraqiranmilitary

Officially, such decisions are, of course, supposed to be made in conjunction with the
sovereign government of the country, but Kaveh L Afrasiabi of Asia Times on-line informs
us that "Iraqi officials were apparently not even consulted prior to an announcement on
this issue."

218 U.S. 302

Ling Su Fan, Plff. in Err.,

v.

United States.

No. 20.

Argued October 27, 1910.

Decided November 14, 1910.

Establishes the legal distinction of a coin bearing the "impress" of the sovereign:

[I]"These limitations are due to the fact that public law gives to such coinage a value
which does not attach as a mere consequence of intrinsic value. Their quality as a legal
tender is an attribute of law aside from their bullion value. They bear, therefore, the
impress of sovereign power which fixes value and authorizes their use in exchange."[/I]

Thompson

v.
Butler.

October Term, 1877

Establishes that the law makes no legal distinction between the values of coin and paper
money used as legal tender:

[I]"A coin dollar is worth no more for the purposes of tender in payment of an ordinary
debt than a note dollar. The law has not made the note a standard of value any more than
coin. It is true that in the market, as an article of merchandise, one is of greater value
than the other; but as money, that is to say, as a medium of exchange, the law knows no
difference between them." [/I]

Interview with Cardinal Francis George

NCR senior correspondent John L. Allen Jr. interviewed Cardinal Francis George of Chicago,
who marks his tenth anniversary this year at the helm of the one of the largest and
wealthiest dioceses in the world. If things hold to form, George will also take over as
the new president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops at their fall meeting
in Baltimore Nov. 12-15, becoming, in effect, the public face of the church just as America
plunges into an election cycle. That combination makes George an important figure indeed
in the Catholic firmament.

“People Make the City,” Executive Summary

Joint Urban Operations

Observations and Insights from Afghanistan and Iraq

Today’s strategic environment implies an obligation to preserve innocent life when possible
and to rebuild that which war destroys. Urban areas are the keys to nations; people make
nations just as, as Thucydides wrote, men make cities. This study aimed to reveal tools
that will better enable military and civilian alike to meet national policy objectives
by more effectively conducting urban combat and restoration. To do so, the study draws
heavily on written material and interviews pertaining to Operations Enduring and Iraqi
Freedom. Written information used includes thousands of pages of hard-copy and electronic
material, much of it from military personnel still serving in theater at the time of its
writing. Interviews include those with members of the American, British, and Australian
armed forces and civilians working to reconstruct Iraq. The military personnel represent
all of the services and both regular and special operations organizations. The time frame
for the study corresponds to two collection phases. Phase I was conducted from October
2003 to April 2004, while Phase II was conducted during three months, from July 2004 to
September 2004. The results of a third phase of the study are published separately.

Nabucco Pipeline will be connected near Erzurum with the Tabriz-Erzurum pipeline, and with
the South Caucasus Pipeline, connecting Nabucco Pipeline with the planned Trans-Caspian
Gas Pipeline. Once completed, it would allow transportation of natural gas from producers
in the Middle East and Caspian region such as Iran, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan to Western
Europe and to the countries along its path. The western end of the pipeline will be
Baumgarten an der March, a major natural gas hub in Austria.

Man Your Battle Stations

What I’m about to write about is not pretty. In fact, it’s downright scary. Trust me; it
won’t earn me invitations to many financial services firms’ Christmas parties. Most American
investors won’t beat a path to my door. But in my heart of hearts, it’s not a question
of “if?” but “when?” much of what I’m about to write will unfold.
Most of what I’m forecasting is not for the next month or year but for many years into
the future. The exact timing of it hitting home is not important for me because by the
time the average American realizes it’s at hand, it will be far too late for them to do
much about it.

Coping with Crumbling States:

A Western and Israeli Balance of Power Strategy for the Levant

Analysis of Report: Reasons for Iraq War

This 30-page report by Wurmser (later Cheney’s Mid-East Adviser) argues that the overthrow
of Saddam is the most central issue for Israel’s security. Not that Saddam is a danger
to Israel, but if Syria and Iran, Israel’s two most dangerous enemies, carve up Iraq, they
will threaten Israel more. On the other hand, if Israel can help Jordan oust Saddam and
gain the “prize,” Israel’s security will increase.

The report is a fuller explanation of the need to “remove Saddam” expressed in the earlier
Clean Break ” report (with Feith and Perle). These three ended up working for Cheney,
Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz, so the logic of this report explains why the neocon’s worked
diligently from early 1998 to 2001 to convince the U.S. to help overthrow Saddam.

There is nothing in this report about Saddam having WMD or sponsoring terrorism. Democracy
is mentioned only twice, first to note the “weakness of democracy and pluralism in the
Arab world,” and second King Hussein of Jordan's instruction to “Spare no effort to end
the suffering of the Iraqi people and enable them to enjoy pluralism and democracy.” Wurmser
does not comment on this instruction.

I’ve Got Nothing To Hide And Other Misunderstandings of Privacy

In this short essay, written for a symposium in the San Diego Law Review, Professor Daniel
Solove examines the nothing to hide argument. When asked about government surveillance
and data mining, many people respond by declaring: I've got nothing to hide. According
to the nothing to hide argument, there is no threat to privacy unless the government
uncovers unlawful activity, in which case a person has no legitimate justification to claim
that it remain private. The nothing to hide argument and its variants are quite prevalent,
and thus are worth addressing. In this essay, Solove critiques the nothing to hide argument
and exposes its faulty underpinnings.

Corruption and Judicial Systems

Global Corruption Report 2007

Now in its sixth year, this edition of the Global Corruption Report focuses on judges and
courts, but situating them within the broader justice system, and looking at political,
economic and societal pressures on the judiciary.

This vital publication brings together scholars, judges and civil society activists from

to reflect on reforms and activism that help remedy a corruption-tainted system.

GCR 2007 includes:

-- analysis of the causes of judicial corruption and its consequences, including an
exploration of the particular impact on women

reports on judicial corruption in 35 countries

-- evaluation of efforts to reduce judicial corruption

-- recommendations for action against judicial corruption directed at judges, political
powers, prosecutors, lawyers and civil society

-- a specially commissioned survey on citizens' experiences of court corruption around
the world

-- the latest empirical research on judicial corruption, for example on the determinants
of judicial corruption and the relationship between immunity laws and corruption

-- detailed assessments of the state of corruption in countries by national chapters of
Transparency International and other experts

Army Doctrine On Counterinsurgency Operations

U.S. Army Report

Counterinsurgency Operations

A new Army doctrinal publication sets forth the principles of U.S. military action in
counterinsurgency operations.

It begins with a definition of terms and builds up to a detailed treatment of intelligence,
information operations and security matters.

"An insurgency is organized movement aimed at the overthrow of a constituted government
through use of subversion and armed conflict."

"Counterinsurgency is those military, paramilitary, political, economic, psychological,
and civic actions taken by a government to defeat insurgency. It is an offensive approach
involving all elements of national power...."

The new Army field manual is unclassified. It is intended for use in education and training;
it is not an operational plan.

The Zero Tolerance, Zero Evidence:

An Analysis of School Disciplinary Practice

Despite the controversies that it has created in school districts throughout the country,
zero tolerance continues to be a widely used response to school disruption and violence.
This paper explores the history, philosophy, and effectiveness of zero tolerance school
disciplinary strategies. Growing out of Reagan-Bush era drug enforcement policy, zero
tolerance discipline attempts to send a message by punishing both major and minor incidents
severely. Analysis of a representative range of zero tolerance suspensions and expulsions
suggests that controversial applications of the policy are not idiosyncratic, but may be
inherent in zero tolerance philosophy. There is as yet little evidence that the strategies
typically associated with zero tolerance contribute to improved student behavior or
overall school safety. Research on the effectiveness of school security measures is
extremely sparse, while data on suspension and expulsion raise serious concerns about both
the equity and effectiveness of school exclusion as an educational intervention. Community
reaction has led some districts to adopt alternatives to zero tolerance, stressing a
graduated system matching offenses and consequences, and preventive strategies, including
bullying prevention, early identification, and improved classroom management. Building
a research base on these alternatives is critical, in order to assist schools in developing
more effective, less intrusive methods for school discipline.

Water Implications of Biofuels Production in the United States

National interests in greater energy independence, concurrent with favorable market
forces, have driven increased production of corn-based ethanol in the United States and
research into the next generation of biofuels. The trend is changing the national
agricultural landscape and has raised concerns about potential impacts on the nation’s
water resources. This report examines some of the key issues and identifies opportunities
for shaping policies that help to protect water resources.

Higher and Higher Education

Trends in Access, Afordability, and Debt

In today's knowledge-based economy, a college degree is a necessary qualification for entry
to the middle class. Over the last 30 years, as real wages for workers with only a high
school diploma have fallen, the life outcomes for those with college degrees have diverged
from those with only high school degrees. In 1977, for example, there was only a 6
percentage-point difference in home ownership rates between those with college educations
and those without. Today, there is a 20 percentage-point difference.

In response to this economic reality, more young people than ever before are enrolling
in college. Nearly three-quarters of high school graduates enroll in some type of college
after high school. Despite this record enrollment, many college-qualified high school
graduates are not planning to attend college at all, attend community college, or enroll
but do not complete college simply because they cannot afford it. Less than a third of
young adults aged 25 to 29 had a bachelor's degree or higher in 2003--a percentage that
hasn't kept pace with enrollment.

Paycheck Paralysis

Jobs and Incomes in Today's Labor Market

Job security and stability were defining characteristics of the U.S. labor market from
the 1950s to the mid-1970s. A large portion of the workforce was unionized, and workplace
benefits such as health insurance and pensions were standard. Today, young workers can
no longer expect to work at a company with the intention of staying until retirement. Union
membership has dropped to just 8.6 percent of the private-sector workforce, and benefits
are becoming increasingly rare. Job instability is the new reality.

As the economy has transitioned away from a manufacturing base and toward a service economy,
the labor market has also changed. Feeling pressure from foreign competition, many
companies have slashed manufacturing jobs permanently. Many of the high-paying blue-collar
jobs that used to be a central component of our middle class no longer exist, leaving young
workers without college degrees in a serious financial pinch. While the earnings for young
workers without college credentials have declined considerably in one generation, the
earnings for college-educated young workers have simply stayed level over three decades.
Faced with a volatile economic mix of high student loan debt coupled with a destabilized
job market and skyrocketing costs of living, insecurity is the new reality for college
graduates as well.

Generation Debt

Student Loans, Credit Cards, and Their Consequences

Young Adult Economics Series

Debt has become a generation-defining characteristic for today's young adults. The problem
often begins with student loan debt, which today affects both community college and
university students. In addition, today's young adults are relying more on credit to cover
basic living expenses, particularly during those first few years in the workplace. As
starting salaries have failed to keep pace with rising student loan bills, housing costs
or health care costs, for many young adults the credit line becomes a life line. The ensuing
debt is exacerbated by a host of credit card industry practices such as universal default
and penalty interest rates, which make it exceedingly difficult to pay down the debt in
a timely manner. Rising debt also threatens the ability of young adults to manage the costs
of day-to-day living, build assets and save for retirement, and support a family.

The High Cost of Putting a Roof Over Your Head

Young Adults Face Unafordable Rental and Housing Markets in Major Cities Across the U.S.

Over the past decade, rents and home prices in major cities across the country have
escalated rapidly. As young adults transition from college into the workforce, already
owing an average of $20,000 in student loan debt, securing affordable housing in the current
market can pose an overwhelming challenge.

Because our nation's largest cities contain the best prospects for high-paying jobs and
professional career paths, young professionals still migrate to major metropolitan areas
like New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Boston. The high cost of rent, however, often
leaves them trapped in a prolonged rental cycle, unable to save enough money for a down
payment on a home, or prompts them to become financially overextended by taking on large,
risky home mortgages.

And Baby Makes Broke

Raising a Family is a Young Adult Issue

Most parents with children under the age of 6 are in their late 20s or early 30s, making
issues of family leave, child care, and work flexibility of core concern to young adults
under the age of 34. Young families across the income spectrum are financially and
emotionally stressed by the demands of work and family, yet our nation has failed to address
these issues in any systematic or holistic fashion. Despite evidence that employees who
have access to work-life supports are better workers, most major corporations don't do
much to foster good parental behavior. And despite numerous studies showing that providing
access to quality early learning and care would save the government money in the long run
through reduced crime and welfare expenditures, our country has no official family policy
or child care policy.

Young Adult Economic Series

Executive Summary

Although Americans of all ages have endured the economic and social changes ushered in
by a shift from an industrial to a technology- and service-based economy, today's young
adults are the first to experience its full weight as they try to start their lives. But
the challenges facing young adults also reflect the failure of public policy to address
the changing realities of starting, and building, a career and family in 21st century
America. As America's 20- and 30-somethings are working to get into the middle class,
they're being hit by a one-two punch: the economy no longer generates widespread
opportunity, and our public policies haven't evolved to pick up any of the slack. And in
many cases, public policy has exacerbated the problems young people face.

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly: Job Quality in the United States over the Three Most Recent
Business Cycles

This report finds that the US economy has created fewer good jobs in the 2000s than was
the case over comparable periods in the 1980s and 1990s. The report analyzed annual data
from the March Current Population Survey for the years 1979 through 2006 and shows that
while the current business cycle has seen an increase in the share of jobs that pay at
least $17 an hour, this gain has been more than offset by a decrease in the share of jobs
that offer employer-provided health insurance (down 3.1 percent points) and pension
coverage (down 4.9 percentage points).

This National Response Framework is a guide to how the nation conducts all-hazards incident
response. It is built upon flexible, scalable and adaptable coordinating structures to
align key roles and responsibilities across the nation, linking all levels of government
and private sector businesses and nongovernmental organizations. It is intended to capture
specific authorities and best practices for managing incidents that range from the serious
but purely local, to large-scale terrorist attacks or catastrophic natural disasters.

Based upon extensive outreach within the public and private sectors, this document
supersedes the National Response Plan (2004, with 2006 revisions). [This National Response
Framework has been approved by the President.]

Stumbling into chaos: Afghanistan on the brink

The security situation in Afghanistan has reached crisis proportions. The Taliban's
ability to establish a presence throughout the country is now proven beyond doubt;
exclusive research undertaken by Senlis Afghanistan indicates that 54 per cent of
Afghanistan’s landmass hosts a permanent Taliban presence, primarily in southern
Afghanistan, and is subject to frequent hostile activity by the insurgency.

The Taliban are the de facto governing authority in significant portions of territory in
the south and east, and are starting to control parts of the local economy and key
infrastructure such as roads and energy supply. The insurgency also exercises a significant
amount of psychological control, gaining more and more political legitimacy in the minds
of the Afghan people who have a long history of shifting alliances and regime change.

The Calm before the Storm: The British Experience in Southern Iraq

In May 2006, Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki declared a state of emergency in the
country's southern Basra province. This status has been maintained ever since, amid
spiraling violence and local political troubles. Why has southern Iraq seemingly
deteriorated since 2003, when British coalition forces took on the task of bringing law,
order, and, eventually, Iraqi self-rule to the area? And what can be done to change the
situation on the ground?

In this Washington Institute Policy Focus, Michael Knights and Ed Williams diagnose the
many problems afflicting southern Iraq, a key population center and the main source of
revenue for the central government. Beginning with prewar realities and the immediate
aftermath of the coalition invasion, they discuss the British military and civil plans
for the region and how those plans have been challenged -- and often thwarted -- in the
years since by rampant disorder, dangerous local political developments, well-organized
Islamist movements, outside interference from countries like Iran, and the partisanship
and weakness of government security forces. With promising new initiatives balanced
against the sober reality of a British troop drawdown, the south's fortunes will have
profound implications for the future of Iraq as a whole.

The Progressive Majority

Why a Conservative America Is a Myth

For anyone interested in where the American public really stands on the big issues that
distinguish progressives from conservatives -- including the issues at the forefront of
today’s political debates -- “The Progressive Majority: Why a Conservative America Is a
Myth” offers hard facts and analysis based on decades of data from some of the nation’s
most respected and nonpartisan public opinion researchers. This is the evidence that
political leaders have a mandate to pursue bold, progressive policies.

This report by the Campaign for America’s Future and Media Matters for America shows that
in study after study, solid majorities of Americans take progressive stands on a full
spectrum of issues, from bread-and-butter economics to the so-called “values” issues where
conservatives claim preeminence.

Opinion polling decisively shows that the American public is very substantially to the
left of virtually all television broadcasts with a social or political content. Yet of
the three cable news networks, 2 are center-right and 1 is far right.

Confronting Confinement

A Report Of The Commission On Safety And Abuse In America's Prisons

[I]“A year ago, a group of individuals with little in common promised to recommend
strategies for operating correctional facilities that serve our country's best interests
and reflect our highest values. Today, we speak in a single voice about the problems, our
nation's ability to overcome them, and the risks for all of us if we fail to act. . . .
What happens inside jails and prisons does not stay inside jails and prisons. We must create
safe and productive conditions of confinement not only because it is the right thing to
do, but because it influences the safety, health, and prosperity of us all.”[/I]

Report On Management Of The Iraq Security Forces Fund In Southwest Asia - Phase III

Report No. D-2008-026

$1B In Military Equipment Missing In Iraq

Report Shows Vehicles, Machine Guns And More Meant For Iraqi Forces Unaccounted For

Tractor trailers, tank recovery vehicles, crates of machine guns and rocket propelled
grenades are just a sampling of more than $1 billion in unaccounted for military equipment
and services provided to the Iraqi security forces, according to a new report issued today
by the Pentagon Inspector General and obtained exclusively by the CBS News investigative
unit. Auditors for the Inspector General reviewed equipment contracts totaling $643
million but could only find an audit trail for $83 million.

The report details a massive failure in government procurement revealing little
accountability for the billions of dollars spent purchasing military hardware for the Iraqi
security forces. For example, according to the report, the military could not account for
12,712 out of 13,508 weapons, including pistols, assault rifles, rocket propelled grenade
launchers and machine guns.

The report comes on the same day that Army procurement officials will face tough questions
from the Senate Armed Services Committee regarding their procurement policies. One
official, Claude Bolton, assistant secretary for acquisition, logistics and technology
has already announced his resignation on the heels of sharp criticism of army contracting.
Bolton’s resignation is effective Jan. 2, 2008. The Army has significantly expanded its
fraud investigations in recent months.

DHS - 5 Years Of Government Mismanagement

Since its creation five years ago, Americans have been inundated with stories of waste,
fraud and abuse at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Mismanagement, grossly
excessive spending, criminal conduct and shady no-bid contracts within DHS have become
regular features on the evening news and the front page of newspapers. As a result, Citizens
for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has prepared a report documenting some
of the most serious problems facing the country's newest cabinet-level department.

US Genocide in Iraq

The United States has committed and sponsored the crime of genocide in Iraq. Outlining
the legal meaning of genocide and following Jean-Paul Sartre’s analysis of the nature of
colonial war, this paper asserts that on the basis of patterns of purposive action a case
for intentional genocide can and should be made under the provisions of the Genocide
Convention. While the United States has destroyed the state of Iraq, contaminating its
environment and creating conditions of mass societal trauma, including the killing of
2,500,000 over 17 years, it has failed and cannot succeed to destroy the nation of Iraq.
Being the lynchpin of US attempts to pursue empire by military means, it is the duty of
all who struggle for justice to oppose the US genocide wrought on Iraq, move to ensure
the prosecution of all those responsible and complicit, and stand firm in solidarity with
the Iraqi people and its legal and legitimate resistance.

2007 Annual Survey of American Jewish Opinion

The data reported here are from the 2007 Annual Survey of American Jewish Opinion, sponsored
by the American Jewish Committee, detailing the views of American Jews about a broad range
of subjects. Among the topics covered in the present survey are the campaign against
terrorism and the war in Iraq, the Israel-Arab conflict, the attachment of American Jews
to Israel, political and social issues in the United States, Jewish perceptions of
anti-Semitism, and Jewish identity concerns. Some of the questions appearing in the survey
are new; others are drawn from previous American Jewish Committee surveys, including the
Annual Survey of American Jewish Opinion carried out in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002,
2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006.

The 2007 survey was conducted for the American Jewish Committee by Synovate (formerly
Market Facts), a leading survey-research organization. Respondents were interviewed by
telephone between November 6 - November 25, 2007; no interviewing took place on the Sabbath.
The sample consisted of 1,000 self-identifying Jewish respondents selected from the
Synovate consumer mail panel. The respondents are demographically representative of the
United States adult Jewish population on a variety of measures. The margin of error for
the sample as a whole is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Promises with a Price

Public Sector Retirement Benefits

$2.73 trillion. That is a conservative estimate of what states will spend on pensions,
health care and other
retirement benefits for their employees over the next 30 years. It is an enormous investment
of taxpayer

dollars—so the stakes are extraordinarily high. Across the country, state policy leaders
are trying to strike the

right balance between controlling costs and recruiting and retaining talent in the public
sector.

Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace: A Critical Examination of the Foreign Policy of Franklin
Delano Roosevelt and its Aftermath (e-Book)

Classic revisionist study of how FDR maneuvered America, against the wishes of most of
its citizens, into war against Germany and Japan, and how FDR's war policy ended in
betrayal, disillusion and endless conflict. Establishes convincingly that U.S.
participation in World War II was neither necessary, nor desirable, nor just. Edited by
one of this century's most influential American scholars, this is a work in the front rank
of American historical scholarship. Eleven concise, scintillating essays on every aspect
of FDR's secret diplomatic and military warpath, by eight giants of revisionist
scholarship, including H. E. Barnes, Charles C. Tansill, F. R. Sanborn, W. L. Neumann,
G. Morgenstern, Percy L. Graves, Wm. H. Chamberlin, and G. A. Lundberg. A measured and
relentless exposé of the calculated deceit by which FDR overturned America's traditional
neutrality policy, provoked Pearl Harbor, and waged a brutal, pointless war that culminated
in mass slaughter at Dresden and Hiroshima, and betrayal -- of America and the West --
at Yalta and Potsdam. These are incisive, unmistakably American perspectives on how the
US made a mockery of its own professed ideals during the "Good War." A virtual encyclopedia
-- authoritative and comprehensive -- on the real causes and the actual results of America's
entry into the Second World War. Indispensable as a history and a reference. Highly relevant
for an understanding of how the United States came to its present-day policy of "New World
Order" global military adventurism.

A characteristic of the neocon approach is that wherever we are, we are back in 1938. Every
threat ends up being, in one form or other, Hitler reincarnated.

These remarks on the 1999 paper by Gary Schmitt and Abram Shulsky on 'Leo Strauss and the

MacLeans Magazine: A Case Study Of Media-Propagated Islamophobia

The objective of this document is to detail the general anti-Islam and anti-Muslim content
of articles published by Maclean’s Magazine. We will demonstrate that Maclean’s is engaging
in a discriminatory form of journalism that targets the Muslim community, promotes
stereotypes, misrepresents fringe elements as the mainstream Muslim community, and
distorts facts to present a false image of Muslims. This document and its conclusions are
based upon a selection of articles found in Maclean’s Magazine between January 2005 and
July 2007. Extracts from these articles can be

located in the Appendix attached to this document. At the end of each article, the reader
will also find a brief commentary and listing of assertions contained in the relevant
article.

It is submitted that Macleans’ publications vis-à-vis the Muslim community are: (1)
promoting Islamophobia and fear of Muslims; (2) representing Muslims as violent people
who are prone to engage in violence and are incapable of living peacefully in their host
societies; (3) casting suspicion on Muslims at large as potential terrorists, extremists,
and radicals; (4) representing the presence and growth of Muslims in Western societies
as a threat to the Western values of democracy, freedom, and human rights; (5) Attempting
to import a racist discourse and language into mainstream discourse in Canadian society;
(6) Attacking multiculturalism and religious freedoms; (7) attacking laws that provide
protection to identifiable communities from the type of discriminatory journalism that
Macleans is engaging in; (8) condemning any and all efforts by politicians, law
enforcement, media and other institutions to reach out to Muslim communities and to
exercise sensitivity.

Our Enemy The State
When Our Enemy The State appeared in 1935, its literary merit rather than its philosophic
content attracted attention to it. The times were not ripe for an acceptance of its
predictions, still less for the argument on which these predictions were based. Faith in
traditional frontier individualism had not yet been shaken by the course of events. Against
this faith the argument that

the same economic forces which in all times and in all nations drive toward the ascendancy
of political power at the expense of social power were in operation here made little
headway. That is, the feeling that “it cannot happen here” was too difficult a hurdle for
the book to overcome.

By the time the first edition had run out, the development of public affairs gave the
argument of the book ample testimony. In less than a decade it was evident to many Americans
that their country is not immune from the philosophy which had captured European thinking.
The times were proving Mr. Nock’s thesis, and by irresistable word-of-mouth advertising
a demand for the book began to manifest itself just when it was no longer available. And
the plates had been put to war purposes.

In 1943 he had a second edition in mind. I talked with him several times about it, urging
him to elaborate on the economic ideas, since these, it seemed to me, were inadequately
developed for the reader with a limited knowledge of political economy. He agreed that
this ought to be done, but

in a separate book, or in a second part of his book, and suggested that I try my hand at
it. Nothing came of the matter because of the war. He died on August 19, 1945.

This volume is an exact duplication of the first edition. He intended to make some slight
changes, principally, as he told me, in the substitution of current illustrations for those
which might carry less weight with the younger reader. As for the sequel stressing
economics, this will have to be done. At any rate, Our Enemy The State needs no support.

Losing Ground

The persistent growth of family poverty in Canada's largest city

Losing Ground, a research report released by United Way of Greater Toronto in November
2007, documents how Toronto families with children 17 years of age and under are faring
financially compared to families in the Toronto Census Metropolitan Area (CMA), in the
province, and across Canada. By examining median incomes, rates of low income, depth of
poverty and warning signs of poverty, the report's key findings have led to eight
recommendations.

The Genuine Progress Indicator 2006

A Tool for Sustainable Development

We believe that if policymakers measure what really matters to people—health care, safety,
a clean environment, and other indicators of well-being—economic policy would naturally
shift towards sustainability.

Redefining Progress created the Genuine Progress Indicator (GPI) in 1995 as an alternative
to the gross domestic product (GDP). The GPI enables policymakers at the national, state,
regional, or local level to measure how well their citizens are doing both economically
and socially.

Economists, policymakers, reporters, and the public rely on the GDP as a shorthand
indicator of progress; but the GDP is merely a sum of national spending with no distinctions
between transactions that add to well-being and those that diminish it.

The GPI is one of the first alternatives to the GDP to be vetted by the scientific community
and used regularly by governmental and non-governmental organizations worldwide.
Redefining Progress advocates for the adoption of the GPI as a tool for sustainable
development and planning.

On a yearly basis, Redefining Progress updates the U.S. Genuine Progress Indicator to
document a more truthful picture of economic and social progress. Our latest update, which
plots GPI accounts from 1950 to 2004, shows that economic growth has been stagnant since
the 1970s.

How We Measure Progress

The GPI starts with the same personal consumption data that the GDP is based on, but then
makes some crucial distinctions. It adjusts for factors such as income distribution, adds
factors such as the value of household and volunteer work, and subtracts factors such as
the costs of crime and pollution.

Because the GDP and the GPI are both measured in monetary terms, they can be compared on
the same scale. Measurements that make up the GPI include:

Income Distribution

Both economic theory and common sense tell us that the poor benefit more from a given
increase in their income than do the rich. Accordingly, the GPI rises when the poor receive
a larger percentage of national income, and falls when their share decreases.

Housework, Volunteering, and Higher Education

Much of the most important work in society is done in household and community settings:
childcare, home repairs, volunteer work, and so on. The GDP ignores these contributions
because no money changes hands. The GPI includes the value of this work figured at the
approximate cost of hiring someone to do it. The GPI also takes into account the non-market
benefits associated with a more educated population.

Crime

Crime imposes large economic costs on individuals and society in the form of legal fees,
medical expenses, damage to property, and the like. The GDP treats such expenses as
additions to well-being. By contrast, the GPI subtracts the costs arising from crime.

Resource Depletion

If today’s economic activity depletes the physical resource base available for tomorrow,
then it is not creating well-being; rather, it is borrowing it from future generations.
The GDP counts such borrowing as current income. The GPI, by contrast, counts the depletion
or degradation of wetlands, forests, farmland, and nonrenewable minerals (including oil)
as a current cost.

Pollution

The GDP often counts pollution as a double gain: Once when it is created, and then again
when it is cleaned up. By contrast, the GPI subtracts the costs of air and water pollution
as measured by actual damage to human health and the environment.

Long-Term Environmental Damage

Climate change, ozone depletion, and nuclear waste management are long-term costs arising
from the use of fossil fuels, chlorofluorocarbons, and atomic energy, respectively. These
costs are unaccounted for in ordinary economic indicators. The GPI treats as costs the
consumption of certain forms of energy and of ozone-depleting chemicals. It also assigns
a cost to carbon emissions to account for the catastrophic economic, environmental, and
social effects of global warming.

Changes in Leisure Time

As a nation becomes wealthier, people should have more latitude to choose between work
and free time for family or other activities. In recent years, however, the opposite has
occurred. The GDP ignores this loss of free time, but the GPI treats leisure as most
Americans do—as something of value. When leisure time increases, the GPI goes up; when
Americans have less of it, the GPI goes down.

Defensive Expenditures

The GDP counts as additions to well-being the money people spend to prevent erosion in
their quality of life or to compensate for misfortunes of various kinds. Examples are the
medical and repair bills from automobile accidents, commuting costs, and household
expenditures on pollution control devices such as water filters. The GPI counts such
"defensive" expenditures as most Americans do: as costs rather than as benefits.

Lifespan of Consumer Durables & Public Infrastructure

The GDP confuses the value provided by major consumer purchases (e.g., home appliances)
with the amount Americans spend to buy them. This hides the loss in well-being that results
when products wear out quickly. The GPI treats the money spent on capital items as a cost,
and the value of the service they provide year after year as a benefit. This applies both
to private capital items and to public infrastructure, such as highways.

Dependence on Foreign Assets

If a nation allows its capital stock to decline, or if it finances consumption out of
borrowed capital, it is living beyond its means. The GPI counts net additions to the capital
stock as contributions to well-being, and treats money borrowed from abroad as reductions.
If the borrowed money is used for investment, the negative effects are canceled out. But
if the borrowed money is used to finance consumption, the GPI declines.

Ezra Levant is a right-wing Canadian neoconservative who publishes Western Standard, a
typical warmongering, pro-Likud journal -- a poor man's Weekly Standard for Canadian
neocons. In February, 2006, he published the Danish Mohammed cartoons, which prompted an
Islamic group's imam (Syed Soharwardy) to file a complaint against Levant with the Alberta
Human Rights and Citizenship Commission, charging Levant with "advocating hatemongering
cartoons in the media," and the imam specifically accused Levant of "defaming me and my
family because we follow and are related to Prophet Mohammed."

The Deutsche Bank and the Nazi Economic War Against the Jews: The Expropriation of
Jewish-Owned Property (e-Book)

In a book that could be subtitled "Hitler's Willing Investment Bankers," Princeton
historian James recounts the Deutsche Bank's participation in the "aryanization" of the
German economy from 1932 to 1940, drawing on internal Deutsche Bank records that only
recently became available as well as material seized by Soviet troops after World War II.
He shows how, as the Nazis began to rise to power, the bank reluctantly purged itself of
Jewish directors, followed by Jewish employees, in response to state pressure. Later, James
reveals, the regime enlisted the bank employees' professional skills, domestic and foreign
relationships, and financial muscle to eliminate Jewish control and ownership of German
companies. The expropriation was conducted gradually, since many hastily seized companies
proved worthless without the management of their Jewish former owners, and also because
this method muted foreign criticism and preserved a veneer of legality. This stands in
stark contrast to the brutally simple methods used by the Nazis in occupied countries and,
after 1941, in Germany as well, explains James. While he finds it impossible to make an
accurate estimate of the profit Deutsche Bank made from these activities and whether that
profit might exceed postwar reparations, he suggests that extravagant figures cited by
other researchers are baseless and implausible. His work will not carry weight with these
critics, however, since it was subsidized by Deutsche Bank and is largely based on documents
kept under their control for the last 50 years.

New analysis 'confirms' 1 million+ Iraq casualties

Further survey work undertaken by ORB, in association with its research partner IIACSS,
confirms our earlier estimate that over 1,000,000 Iraqi citizens have died as a result
of the conflict which started in 2003.

Further survey work undertaken by ORB, in association with its research partner IIACSS,
confirms our earlier estimate that over 1,000,000 Iraqi citizens have died as a result
of the conflict which started in 2003.

Following responses to ORB’s earlier work, which was based on survey work undertaken in
primarily urban locations, we have conducted almost 600 additional interviews in rural
communities. By and large the results are in line with the ‘urban results’ and we now estimate
that the death toll between March 2003 and August 2007 is likely to have been of the order
of 1,033,000. If one takes into account the margin of error associated with survey data
of this nature then the estimated range is between 946,000 and 1,120,000.
Further information about the research, our calculations, questionnaire wording and data
tables is available by clicking on the links below. Also available is an article providing
background on IIACSS and its founding director Dr. Munqith Dagher.

US Rules of Engagement for Iraq

Classified SECRET consolidated US Forces Rules of Engagement (ROE) for Iraq.

On first reading, the document contains a number of items of interest to the press,
including rules about mosque attacks, detention of immams, cross border incursions
(including Iran and Syria), the use of mines and riot control agents, terrorist targeting,
the destruction of Iraqi government property used by insurgents and even kafkaesque rules
for attacks on WMD mobile production labs.

Deeper reading by those more familiar with the US-Iraq war is likely to reveal other items
of interest, for instance variations in the declaration that Al Quds, the Mahdi Army and
armed supporters of Muqtada Al-Sadr are enemies who may be engaged at will.

The document forms a talking point to most US operations in Iraq and the degree of official
sanction for them.

1978

Description: In Chapter 3 of his book 'Honorable Men: My Life in the CIA', William Colby
gives an account of his activities as a spy after he joined the Scandinavian Branch of
the CIA in the early 1950s. Colby was in charge of opening an Office of Policy Coordination

Trends in Terrorism

Threats to the United States and the Future of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act

The Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA) requires insurers to offer commercial insurance
that will pay on claims that occur from a terrorist attack, and for losses on the scale
of 9/11, TRIA provides a “backstop” in the form of free reinsurance. The authors describe
the evolving terrorist threat with the goal of comparing the underlying risk of attack
to the architecture of financial protection that has been facilitated by TRIA, which will
“sunset” in December 2005. While TRIA was originally justified primarily as a measure to
stimulate the economy, insurance also has the effect of promoting resilience in the
aftermath of an attack. Thus, a functioning terrorism insurance system, at least in the
context of economic targeting by al Qaeda, should be thought of as not just an economic
development mechanism but also as a counterterrorism tool.

Towards a Grand Strategy for an Uncertain World: Renewing Transatlantic Partnership.

In every country, and at all times, we like to rely on certainty. But in a world of asymmetric
threats and global challenges, our governments and peoples are uncertain about what the
threats are and how they should face the complicated world before them. After explaining
the complexity of the threats, the authors assess current capabilities and analyse the
deficiencies in existing institutions, concluding that no nation and no institution is
capable of dealing with current and future problems on its own. The only way to deal with
these threats and challenges is through an integrated and allied strategic approach, which
includes both non-military and military capabilities.

UNODC anticipates another large opium crop in Afghanistan in 2008

The opium poppy seedlings are still under the ground or snow in most parts of Afghanistan,
but the UNODC Opium Winter Rapid Assessment Survey, released today, broadly anticipates
what can be expected when they bloom this spring.

One of the main findings of the Survey is that cultivation levels will be broadly similar
to, perhaps slightly lower than, last year's record harvest. This has been established
through field visits and interviews with village leaders.

"Opium cultivation in Afghanistan may have peaked, but the 2008 amount will still be
shockingly high", said UNODC Executive Director Antonio Maria Costa at the launch of the
report. "Afghan drugs, and the funds they generate, are a destabilizing force. Europe,
Russia and the countries along the Afghan heroin routes, should brace themselves again
for major health and security consequences", he warned.

The expected 2008 opium trends deepen a dichotomy already evident last year. The possibly
growing number of opium-free provinces in the north-east of the country collides against
the evidence of likely higher levels of opium cultivation in the south-west - the areas
of insurgency and greatest instability.

Another disturbing trend is the steady rise in cannabis cultivation. The report shows that,
in addition to supplying 90% of world opium, Afghanistan has become the world's biggest
supplier of cannabis, with cultivation estimated at 70,000 hectares this year. It is
exported mostly through the southern borders, Pakistan and Iran, and eventually into the
Gulf countries.

Do We Need to Go to War for Oil?

Many people fear that a hostile foreign oil producer will be able to damage Americans and,
for that reason, think that the U.S. government should ensure U.S. access to oil. But a
foreign government cannot cause Americans to line up for gasoline. Only price controls
imposed by U.S. governments can do that, which is what they did in the 1970s. A hostile
foreign oil producer cannot inflict more than a small amount of harm on Americans by
refusing to sell oil to Americans, unless this oil producer is willing to cut its own output.
If a hostile foreign oil producer maintains output but cuts exports to the United States,
it initiates a game of musical chairs in which the number of chairs equals the number of
players. Different buyers will be linked with different sellers than before the hostile
producer reduced its oil exports to the United States, but the cost to Americans of
switching suppliers would be negligible. The only way a foreign oil producer can harm
Americans is by cutting output, but that producer will then harm itself and also harm all
other oil users, not just U.S. consumers. This harm is likely to be well under 0.5 percent
of U.S. gross domestic product (GDP). Ironically, war for oil could well drive the price
of oil higher, not lower, thus costing Americans twice—as taxpayers and as oil users.

Canada’s Toxic Tar Sands: The Most Destructive Project on Earth

Because of their sheer scale, all Canadians are affected by the Tar Sands, no matter where
they live.

If you live downstream, your water is being polluted and your fish and wildlife may be
dangerous to eat. If you live in Saskatchewan you are a victim of acid rain. If you live
in BC, “supertankers” may soon be plying your shoreline carrying Tar Sands oil to Asia.
If you live in Ontario, you are exposed to harmful emissions from the refining of Tar Sands
Oil. And the impacts do not stop at Canada’s border – US refineries are re-tooling to handle
the dirty oil from Alberta.

With the Tar Sands, Canada has become the world’s dirty energy superpower.

Environmental Defence’s report highlights the environmental and human health effects of
the Tar Sands. And, outlines what the federal government should do to clean it up.

Haradinaj and Thaci met with Osama bin Laden in Tirana in 1995 to plan al-Qaeda jihad in
Kosovo

Albanian Terrorism and Organised Crime in Kosovo-Metohija

The presence of the radical Islam in K&M [Kosovo and Metohija] is illustrated by the fact
that in 1995 Osama Bin Laden visited Albania as a guest of Sali Berisha, who was the
President of Albania at the time, when bases for the logistic and financial support to
the Al Khaida organization were set up, with cells in K&M. In addition to Bin Laden, the
meeting was attended by Bashkim Gazideda, former head of secret police of Albania, Hashim
Thaqi and Ramush Haradinaj. On the occasion, Bashkim Gazideda was elected into a group
of Al Khaida leaders for the region of Balkan.

The book includes a large amount of information provided by the Security Intelligence
Agency referring to the structure of the Albanian National Army (ANA), the data on terrorism
and members of organised criminal structures in Kosovo-Metohija as well as victims of their
crime.

Strategic Assessment 1999 : Priorities For A Turbulent World

A top-level United States policy document has emerged that explicitly confirms the Defence
Department's readiness to fight an oil war.
According to the report, Strategic Assessment 1999, prepared for the US Joint Chiefs of
Staff and the Secretary of Defence, "energy and resource issues will continue to shape
international security".

Oil conflicts over production facilities and transport routes, particularly in the Persian
Gulf and Caspian regions, are specifically envisaged.

Although the policy does not forecast imminent US military conflict, it vividly highlights
how the highest levels of the US Defence community accepted the waging of an oil war as
a legitimate military option.

Strategic Assessment also forecasts that if an oil "problem" arises, "US forces might be
used to ensure adequate supplies".

Although Strategic Assessment 1999 predicts adequate US energy supplies, it also finds
that supply shortages could "exacerbate regional political tensions, potentially causing
regional conflicts".

The Bush Administration has stated that providing for US energy needs is a priority.

Strategic Assessment was prepared by the Institute for National Strategic Studies, part
of the US Department of Defence's National Defence University. The institute lists its
primary mission as policy research and analysis for the Joint Chiefs, the Defence
Secretary, and a variety of government security and defence bodies.

According to the report, national security depends on successful engagement in the global
economy, so national defence no longer means protecting the nation from military threats
alone, but economic challenges, too.

The fall of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s brought an end to the US's ideological
basis for potential conflict. In 1992 Bill Clinton urged that "our economic strength must
become a central defining element of our national security policy".

Since then, members of the Bush Administration have promoted the need for the consolidation
of the Cold War victory.

In what many may see as an apparent parallel to present events, Strategic Assessment 1999
drew attention to pre-World War II Britain's pursuit of an approach where control over
territory was seen as essential to ensuring resource supplies.

However, the Defence Department policymakers behind Strategic Assessment also appear to
recognise the potential consequences of such policies.

The authors warn that if the great powers return to the 19th century approach of securing
resources, of conquering resource suppliers, the world economy will suffer and world
politics will become more tense.

Why do U.S. firms hold so much more cash than they used to?

The average cash-to-assets ratio for U.S. industrial firms more than doubles from 1980
to 2006. A measure of the economic importance of this increase in cash holdings is that
at the end of the sample period, the average firm can pay back all of its debt obligations
with its cash holdings; in other words, the average firm has no leverage if leverage is
measured as net debt. This change in cash ratios and net debt is the result of a secular
trend rather than the outcome of the recent buildup in cash holdings of some large firms,
and it is much more pronounced for firms that do not pay dividends and for firms in
industries whose cash flows became riskier. The average cash ratio increases over the
sample period because firms change: their cash flow becomes riskier, they hold fewer
inventories and accounts receivable, and are increasingly R&D intensive. The precautionary
motive for cash holdings plays an important role in explaining the increase in the average
cash ratio; in contrast, agency considerations are not successful in explaining the
increase.

Opening Pandora's Box: How technologies of communication and cognition may be shifting
towards a 'Psycho-Civilized Society'

Increasingly there are indications that the uses of wireless technologies have been
developed to target an individual’s biological body, with specific focus upon the neuronal
functioning of the brain. This paper examines how some of these uses have had detrimental
effects, and what this implies for both present and upcoming developments for particular
wireless/sensor technologies. Are we seeing a trend towards a psycho–civilised society,
where greater emphasis is placed upon social control and pre–emptive strategies?

The Origin of Palestinians and Their Genetic Relatedness With Other Mediterranean
Populations

The genetic profile of Palestinians has, for the first time, been studied by using human
leukocyte antigen (HLA) gene variability and haplotypes. The comparison with other
Mediterranean populations by using neighbor-joining dendrograms and correspondence
analyses reveal that Palestinians are genetically very close to Jews and other Middle East
populations, including Turks (Anatolians), Lebanese, Egyptians, Armenians and Iranians.
Archaeologic and genetic data support that both Jews and Palestinians came from the ancient
Canaanites, who extensively mixed with Egyptians, Mesopotamian and Anatolian peoples in
ancient times. Thus, Palestinian-Jewish rivalry is based in cultural and religious, but
not in genetic, differences. The relatively close relatedness of both Jews and Palestinians
to western Mediterranean populations reflects the continuous circum-Mediterranean
cultural and gene flow that have occurred in prehistoric and historic times. This flow
overtly contradicts the demic diffusion model of western Mediterranean populations
substitution by agriculturalists coming from the Middle East in the Mesolithic-Neolithic
transition.

The genetic distances between the Palestinians and other populations (x 100) obtained by
using high-resolution HLA-DRB1 allele frequencies. The lower the number, the more closely
related they are.

Eavesdropping 101: What Can The NSA Do?

The recent revelations about illegal eavesdropping on American citizens by the U.S.
National Security Agency have raised many questions about just what the agency is doing.
Although the facts are just beginning to emerge, information that has come to light about
the NSA's activities and capabilities over the years, as well as the recent reporting by
the New York Times and others, allows us to discern the outlines of what they are likely
doing and how they are doing it.

No Torture - No Exceptions

In most issues of the Washington Monthly, we favor articles that we hope will launch a
debate. In this issue we seek to end one. The unifying message of the articles that follow
is, simply, Stop. In the wake of September 11, the United States became a nation that
practiced torture. Astonishingly—despite the repudiation of torture by experts and the
revelations of Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib—we remain one. As we go to press, President George
W. Bush stands poised to veto a measure that would end all use of torture by the United
States. His move, we suspect, will provoke only limited outcry. What once was shocking
is now ordinary.

On paper, the list of practices declared legal by the Department of Justice for use on
detainees in Guantanamo Bay and other locations has a somewhat bloodless quality—sleep
deprivation, stress positions, forced standing, sensory deprivation, nudity, extremes of
heat or cold. But such bland terms mask great suffering. Sleep deprivation eventually leads
to hallucinations and psychosis. (Menachem Begin, former prime minister of Israel,
experienced sleep deprivation at the hands of the KGB and would later assert that "anyone
who has experienced this desire [to sleep] knows that not even hunger and thirst are
comparable with it.") Stress positions entail ordeals such as being shackled by the wrists,
suspended from the ceiling, with arms spread out and feet barely touching the ground. Forced
standing, a technique often used in North Korean prisons, involves remaining erect and
completely still, producing an excruciating combination of physical and psychological
pain, as ankles swell, blisters erupt on the skin, and, in time, kidneys break down. Sensory
deprivation—being deprived of sight, sound, and touch—can produce psychotic symptoms
in as little as twenty-four hours. The agony of severe and prolonged exposure to temperature
extremes and the humiliation of forced nudity speak for themselves.

Then there is waterboarding, a form of mock execution by drowning, a technique that has
been used in so-called "black sites." In addition to the physical pain and terror it
induces, long-term psychological effects also haunt patients—panic attacks, depression,
and symptoms of post-traumatic-stress disorder. It has long been prosecuted as a crime
of war. In our view, it still should be.

Ideally, the election in November would put an end to this debate, but we fear it won't.
John McCain, who for so long was one of the leading Republican opponents of the White House's
policy on torture, voted in February against making the CIA subject to the ban on "enhanced
interrogation." As for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, while both have come out strongly
against torture, they seldom discuss the subject on the campaign trail. We fear that even
a Democratic president might, under pressure from elements of the national security
bureaucracy, carve out loopholes, possibly in secret, condoning some forms of torture.

Over the past decade, voters have had many legitimate worries: stagnant wages, corruption
in Washington, terrorism, and a botched war in Iraq. But we believe that when Americans
look back years from now, what will shame us most is that our country abandoned a bedrock
principle of civilized nations: that torture is without exception wrong.

It is in the hopes of keeping the attention of the public, and that of our elected officials,
on this subject that the writers of this collection of essays have put pen to paper. They
include a former president, the speaker of the House, two former White House chiefs of
staff, current and former senators, generals, admirals, intelligence officials,
interrogators, and religious leaders. Some are Republicans, others are Democrats, and
still others are neither. What they all agree on, however, is this: It was a profound moral
and strategic mistake for the United States to abandon long-standing policies of humane
treatment of enemy captives. We should return to the rule of law and cease all forms of
torture, with no exceptions for any agency. And we should expect our presidential nominees
to commit to this idea.

Iraq: No Let-Up In The Humanitarian Crisis

Five years after the outbreak of the war in Iraq, the humanitarian situation in most of
the country remains among the most critical in the world. Because of the conflict, millions
of Iraqis have insufficient access to clean water, sanitation and health care. The current
crisis is exacerbated by the lasting effects of previous armed conflicts and years of
economic sanctions.

Despite limited improvements in security in some areas, armed violence is still having
a disastrous impact. Civilians continue to be killed in the hostilities. The injured often
do not receive adequate medical care. Millions of people have been forced to rely on
insufficient supplies of poor-quality water as water and sewage systems suffer from a lack
of maintenance and a shortage of engineers.
Many families include people who have been forced by the conflict to flee their homes,
leaving those left behind with the daily struggle of trying to make ends meet. A sustained
economic crisis marked by high unemployment further aggravates their plight.

mtDNA haplogroup X: An ancient link between Europe/Western Asia and North America?

On the basis of comprehensive RFLP analysis, it has been inferred that approximately 97%
of Native American mtDNAs belong to one of four major founding mtDNA lineages, designated
haplogroups "A"-"D." It has been proposed that a fifth mtDNA haplogroup (haplogroup X)
represents a minor founding lineage in Native Americans. Unlike haplogroups A-D,
haplogroup X is also found at low frequencies in modern European populations. To
investigate the origins, diversity, and continental relationships of this haplogroup, we
performed mtDNA high-resolution RFLP and complete control region (CR) sequence analysis
on 22 putative Native American haplogroup X and 14 putative European haplogroup X mtDNAs.
The results identified a consensus haplogroup X motif that characterizes our European and
Native American samples. Among Native Americans, haplogroup X appears to be essentially
restricted to northern Amerindian groups, including the Ojibwa, the Nuu-Chah-Nulth, the
Sioux, and the Yakima, although we also observed this haplogroup in the Na-Dene-speaking
Navajo. Median network analysis indicated that European and Native American haplogroup
X mtDNAs, although distinct, nevertheless are distantly related to each other. Time
estimates for the arrival of X in North America are 12,000-36,000 years ago, depending
on the number of assumed founders, thus supporting the conclusion that the peoples
harboring haplogroup X were among the original founders of Native American populations.
To date, haplogroup X has not been unambiguously identified in Asia, raising the
possibility that some Native American founders were of Caucasian ancestry.

The Fire This Time

The Fire This Time is an audiodocumentary about the 1990-91 Gulf War on Iraq and its
aftermath.

In April 1999 Grant Wakefield and Miriam Ryle travelled to Iraq to update Ryle's 1994
documentary 'Voices From Iraq'. Amongst the footage they shot was an interview with the
United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq, Hans von Sponeck. Von Sponeck went on
record for the first time to condemn the United Nations sanctions against Iraq, as his
predecessor Dennis Halliday had done and to accuse the United States and the United Kingdom
of playing games with the sanctions, to the detriment of the Iraqi people. On their return
to the UK, Wakefield offered this unedited interview to the BBC and to Channel 4. When
it was refused, he decided to use this and other material he had collected to make an audio
CD. The CD documentary charts the story of Iraq and its role in the geopolitics of the
West, from the beginning of the 20th century to the murderous UN sanctions at the end of
the nineties.

The documentary consists of three parts:

Part One 'Plans'

Part Two 'The Fire Comes'

Part Three 'One Nation Under A Siege'

There are two CDs. The first CD is the audiodocumentary, using a mix of narration, interview
and sound samples from news archive mixed to operatic effect with commissioned music. The
second CD is the instrumental version of the songs used for the first disc. Almost all
songs are previously unreleased (the exceptions are listed below).

Biofuels: At What Cost?

Government Support for Ethanol and Biodiesel in the United States

Subsidies to biofuels have reached record levels in the United States and are a costly
way of achieving public policy objectives, according to a report launched in October 2006
by the Global Subsidies Initiative (GSI) of the International Institute for Sustainable
Development (IISD).

“Biofuels: At What Cost? — Government Support for Ethanol and Biodiesel in the United
States”, is the first of six country studies commissioned by the GSI and planned for release
over the coming months. The report provides the most comprehensive survey of subsidies
to biofuels to date, cataloguing hundreds of government programs that support virtually
every stage of production and consumption relating to ethanol and biodiesel.

“Many of these subsidies are poorly coordinated and targeted,” says Simon Upton, director
of the GSI. “All indications are that subsidies are being piled on top of one another without
policy makers having a clear idea of their potential impact on the environment and the
economy. Yet the potential for waste on a grand scale and some spectacularly perverse
environmental outcomes is large.”

The report estimates that subsidies to biofuels are between $5.5 billion and $7.3 billion
a year. Those figures are expected to grow significantly if current policies remain in
place, as the bulk of biofuels subsidies are tied to output and output is increasing at
double-digit rates of growth.

Government subsidies to biofuels in the U.S. have lately been promoted as a way to
simultaneously address concerns related to the environment, energy security, and rural
development. But the cost-effectiveness of achieving these goals under the current subsidy
regime is low.

The report finds, for example, that biofuels are an extremely high-cost means for reducing
greenhouse-gas emissions. Under optimistic projections, it costs some $500 in federal and
state subsidies to reduce one metric ton of CO2-equivalent through the production and use
of corn-based ethanol.

“That could purchase more than 30 metric tons of CO2-equivalent offsets on the European
Climate Exchange, or nearly 140 metric tons on the Chicago Climate Exchange,” notes the
report’s author, Doug Koplow.

Moreover, the sheer levels of government support to biofuels appear out of proportion to
their ability to satisfy domestic transport-fuel requirements. Current forecasts are that
biofuels would account for less than 5 percent of total transport fuel use in 2010.

“Because most liquid biofuels will be consumed as blends with gasoline or petroleum diesel,
biofuels will for some time to come be complements to petroleum-based transport fuels,
not major competitors with them,” observes the GSI’s Director of Research, Ronald
Steenblik.

The Global Subsidies Initiative is concerned that widespread and largely uncritical
support has surrounded liquid biofuels with a sense of inevitability, eclipsing other
energy alternatives.

“There is an urgent need to examine the claimed benefits from biofuel subsidies, and to
compare them with the costs of meeting the same goals in other ways,” says Mr. Upton. “Until
then, we suggest that the U.S. Congress and the States declare a moratorium on programs
that would increase or extend subsidies to liquid biofuels, with a view to developing a
plan for phasing out subsidies to all transport fuels as quickly as possible.”

Water-Level Changes in the High Plains Aquifer, Predevelopment to 2005 and 2003 to 2005

The High Plains aquifer underlies 111.6 million acres (174,000 square miles) in parts of
eight States-Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and
Wyoming. Water-level declines began in parts of the High Plains aquifer soon after the
beginning of extensive ground-water irrigation. This report presents water-level changes
in the High Plains aquifer from the time prior to substantial ground-water irrigation
development (about 1950) to 2005 and from 2003 to 2005.

Water-level changes from predevelopment to 2005 ranged between a rise of 84 feet and a
decline of 277 feet. Area-weighted, average water-level change in the aquifer was a decline
of 12.8 feet from predevelopment to 2005, a decline of 0.8 foot from 2003 to 2004, and
a decline of 0.2 foot from 2004 to 2005. Total water in storage in the aquifer in 2005
was about 2,925 million acre-feet, which was a decline of about 253 million acre-feet (or
9 percent) since predevelopment.

Water Implications of Biofuels Production in the United States

Because of a strong U.S. national interest in greater energy independence, biofuels have
become important liquid transportation fuels and are likely to remain so for the
foreseeable future. Currently, the main biofuel in the United States is ethanol derived
from corn kernels, with a very small fraction made from sorghum. Biodiesel from soybeans
also comprises a small fraction of U.S. biofuels. Ethanol from “cellulosic” plant sources
(such as corn stalks and wheat straw, native grasses, and forest trimmings) is expected
to begin commercially within the next decade.

Recent increases in oil prices in conjunction with subsidy policies have led to a dramatic
expansion in corn ethanol production and high interest in further expansion over the next
decade. President Bush has called for production of 35 billion gallons of ethanol annually
by 2017, which, if achieved, would comprise about 15 percent of U.S. liquid transportation
fuels. (1 gallon is equal to 3.79 liters.)

This goal is almost certain to result in a major increase in corn production, at least
until marketable future alternatives are developed.

Among the possible challenges to biofuel development that may not have received appropriate
attention are its effects on water and related land resources. The central questions are
how water use and water quality are expected to change as the U.S. agricultural portfolio
shifts to include more energy crops and as overall agricultural production potentially
increases. Such questions need to be considered within the context of U.S. policy and also
the expected advances in technology and agricultural practices that could help reduce water
impacts.

Taking the risk out of civil society: harnessing social movements and regulating
revolutions

Challenging power is crucial to the stability of democracy, without dissent there would
be few checks on unbridled power. The overwhelming power of dissent and popular democracy
to effect social change is widely acknowledged by corporate and governmental elites; and
since 1945 they have covertly spent millions of dollars undermining social movements and
popular democracies all over the world. In the 1970s, many of these covert operations were
publicly revealed: however, the lessons that the U.S. government appeared to learn, were
not that covert operations were bad per se, but instead that power politics played out
through covert manoeuvres did not play well in the public sphere. Thus since 1983, the
National Endowment for Democracy (NED) has been ‘promoting democracy’ globally, in many
ways, doing overtly that which had been previously carried out covertly. This study
provides an overview of some of these overt activities and provides examples of how elite
groups are working closely with social movements. Initially, the paper briefly outlines
the development of corporate front groups and Astroturf groups in democratic countries,
and will then investigate - in depth - the less examined parallel expansion of government
regulated or engineered dissent (focusing particularly on the recent popular revolutions
in Eastern Europe). The paper concludes by offering some suggestions about how these
developments affect civil society and provides recommendations for how social movements
might counteract elite manipulation.

Two Forms of the Straw Man

The authors identify and offer an analysis of a new form of the Straw Man fallacy, and
then explore the implications of the prevalence of this fallacy for contemporary political
discourse.

In what Talisse dubs a weak man argument, a person sets up the opposition’s weakest (or
one of its weakest) arguments or proponents for attack, as opposed to misstating a rival’s
position as the straw man argument does.

The Deliberate Dumbing Down Of America - A Chronological Paper Trail (e-Book)

Former Senior Policy Advisor in the U.S. Department of Education, blew the whistle in the
'80s on government activities withheld from the public. Her inside knowledge will help
you protect your children from controversial methods and programs. In this book you will
discover:

- How good teachers across America have been forced to use controversial, non-academic
methods.

- How "school choice" is being used to further dangerous reform goals, and how home
schooling and private education are especially vulnerable.

- How workforce training (school-to-work) is an essential part of an overall plan for a
global economy, and how this plan will shortcircuit your child's future career plans and
opportunities.
- How the international, national, regional, state and local agendas for education reform
are all interconnected and have been for decades.

The Conservative Nanny State

How the Wealthy Use the Government to Stay Rich and Get Richer (e-Book)

Economist Dean Baker debunks the myth that conservatives favor the market over government
intervention. In fact, conservatives rely on a range of “nanny state” policies that ensure
the rich get richer while leaving most Americans worse off. It’s time for the rules to
change. Sound economic policy should harness the market in ways that produce desirable
social outcomes – decent wages, good jobs and affordable health care.

Cities in Crisis

A Special Analytic Report on High School Graduation

Graduation rates have become a prominent feature in the landscape of high school reform
and within the larger world of educational policy. Studies conducted over the past several
years have repeatedly demonstrated that far fewer American students are completing high
school with diplomas than had previously been realized. Whereas the conventional wisdom
had long placed the graduation rate around 85 percent, a growing consensus has emerged
that only about seven in 10 students are actually successfully finishing high school.
Graduation rates are even lower among certain student populations, particularly racial
and ethnic minorities and males.

That same conventional wisdom also suggests that the type of community in which a student
lives and attends school will exert a strong and pervasive influence on a variety of
educational outcomes. This connection between place and performance applies to both the
experiences of individual students and the collective performance of schools and school
systems. Striking differences between schools situated in urban and suburban environments,
for instance, have frequently been documented in the area of tested achievement. An
analysis by the EPE Research Center also shows that high school graduation rates are 15
percentage points lower in the nation’s urban schools when compared with those located
in the suburbs. Despite the acknowledged importance of such contextual factors, apart from
attention to broad national-level patterns, there has been limited detailed investigation
into the connection between where a young person lives and his or her chances of graduating
from high school.

This report takes a geographically-informed approach to the issue of high school
completion. Specifically, we examine graduation rates in the school districts serving the
nation’s 50 most-populous cities as well as the larger metropolitan areas in which they
are situated. Results show that graduation rates are considerably lower in the nation’s
largest cities than they are in the average urban locale. Further, extreme disparities
emerge in a number of the country’s largest metropolitan areas, where students served by
suburban systems may be twice as likely as their urban peers to graduate from high school.

Anarchism and syndicalism in South Africa, 1904-1921: Rethinking the history of labour
and the left

This is a study of the influence of anarchism and syndicalism (a variant of anarchism)
on the left and labour movements in South Africa between the 1890s and the 1920s, but with
a focus on the first two decades of the twentieth century. Internationally, this was a
period of widespread working class unrest and radicalism, and the apogee, the “glorious
period”, of anarchist and syndicalist influence from the 1890s to the 1920s. The rising
influence of anarchism and syndicalism was reflected in South Africa, where it widely
influenced the left, as well as significant sections of the local labour movement, as well
as layers of the nationalist movements. This influence also spilled into neighbouring
countries, fostering a movement that was multi-racial in composition, as well as
internationalist and interracial in outlook. These developments are today almost entirely
forgotten, and have been largely excised from the literature: this thesis is, above all,
a work of recovering the history of a significant tradition, a history that has significant
implications for understanding the history of left and labour movements in South Africa
and southern Africa.

Cops and Former Secret Service Agents Ran Black Ops on Green Groups

A private security company organized and managed by former Secret Service officers spied
on Greenpeace and other environmental organizations from the late 1990s through at least
2000, pilfering documents from trash bins, attempting to plant undercover operatives
within groups, casing offices, collecting phone records of activists, and penetrating
confidential meetings.

Charges Of Murder And Torture Of Afghan Prisoners In U.S. Custody

Criminal Investigation Command's "Gardez" Report:

The American Civil Liberties Union obtained documents today from the Department of Defense
confirming the military’s use of unlawful interrogation methods on detainees held in U.S.
custody in Afghanistan. The documents from the military’s Criminal Investigation Division
(CID), obtained as a result of the ACLU’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, include
the first on-the-ground reports of torture in Gardez, Afghanistan to be publicly released.

“These documents make it clear that the military was using unlawful interrogation
techniques in Afghanistan,” said Amrit Singh, an attorney with the ACLU. “Rather than
putting a stop to these systemic abuses, senior officials appear to have turned a blind
eye to them.”

Special Operations officers in Gardez admitted to using what are known as Survival,
Evasion, Resistance and Escape (SERE) techniques, which for decades American service
members experienced as training to prepare for the brutal treatment they might face if
captured.

Today’s documents reveal charges that Special Forces beat, burned, and doused eight
prisoners with cold water before sending them into freezing weather conditions. One of
the eight prisoners, Jamal Naseer, died in U.S. custody in March 2003. In late 2004, the
military opened a criminal investigation into charges of torture at Gardez. Despite
numerous witness statements describing the evidence of torture, the military’s
investigation concluded that the charges of torture were unsupported. It also concluded
that Naseer’s death was the result of a “stomach ailment,” even though no autopsy had been
conducted in his case. Documents uncovered today also refer to sodomy committed by prison
guards; the victims’ identities are redacted.

“These documents raise serious questions about the adequacy of the military’s
investigations into prisoner abuse,” added Singh.

Invisible Wounds of War

Psychological and Cognitive Injuries, Their Consequences, and Services to Assist Recovery

Since October 2001, approximately 1.64 million U.S. troops have been deployed for
Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom (OEF/OIF) in Afghanistan and Iraq. Early
evidence suggests that the psychological toll of these deployments — many involving
prolonged exposure to combat-related stress over multiple rotations — may be
disproportionately high compared with the physical injuries of combat. In the face of
mounting public concern over post-deployment health care issues confronting OEF/OIF
veterans, several task forces, independent review groups, and a Presidential Commission
have been convened to examine the care of the war wounded and make recommendations. Concerns
have been most recently centered on two combat-related injuries in particular:
post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. With the increasing incidence
of suicide and suicide attempts among returning veterans, concern about depression is also
on the rise.

The study discussed in this monograph focuses on post-traumatic stress disorder, major
depression, and traumatic brain injury, not only because of current high-level policy
interest but also because, unlike the physical wounds of war, these conditions are often
invisible to the eye, remaining invisible to other servicemembers, family members, and
society in general. All three conditions affect mood, thoughts, and behavior; yet these
wounds often go unrecognized and unacknowledged. The effect of traumatic brain injury is
still poorly understood, leaving a large gap in knowledge related to how extensive the
problem is or how to address it.

RAND conducted a comprehensive study of the post-deployment health-related needs
associated with these three conditions among OEF/OIF veterans, the health care system in
place to meet those needs, gaps in the care system, and the costs associated with these
conditions and with providing quality health care to all those in need. This monograph
presents the results of our study, which should be of interest to mental health treatment
providers; health policymakers, particularly those charged with caring for our nation’s
veterans; and U.S. service men and women, their families, and the concerned public. All
the research products from this study are available at veterans.rand.org.

Data collection for this study began in April 2007 and concluded in January 2008. Specific
activities included a critical review of the extant literature on the prevalence of
post-traumatic stress disorder, major depression, and traumatic brain injury and their
short- and long-term consequences; a population-based survey of servicemembers and
veterans who served in Afghanistan or Iraq to assess health status and symptoms, as well
as utilization of and barriers to care; a review of existing programs to treat
servicemembers and veterans with the three conditions; focus groups with military
servicemembers and their spouses; and the development of a microsimulation model to
forecast the economic costs of these conditions over time.

Among our recommendations is that effective treatments documented in the scientific
literature — evidence-based care — are available for PTSD and major depression. Delivery
of such care to all veterans with PTSD or major depression would pay for itself within
two years, or even save money, by improving productivity and reducing medical and mortality
costs. Such care may also be a cost-effective way to retain a ready and healthy military
force for the future. However, to ensure that this care is delivered requires system-level
changes across the Department of Defense, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the U.S.
health care system.

Taking the risk out of civil society: harnessing social movements and regulating
revolutions

Challenging power is crucial to the stability of democracy, without dissent there would
be few checks on unbridled power. The overwhelming power of dissent and popular democracy
to effect social change is widely acknowledged by corporate and governmental elites; and
since 1945 they have covertly spent millions of dollars undermining social movements and
popular democracies all over the world. In the 1970s, many of these covert operations were
publicly revealed: however, the lessons that the U.S. government appeared to learn, were
not that covert operations were bad per se, but instead that power politics played out
through covert manoeuvres did not play well in the public sphere. Thus since 1983, the
National Endowment for Democracy (NED) has been ‘promoting democracy’ globally, in many
ways, doing overtly that which had been previously carried out covertly. This study
provides an overview of some of these overt activities and provides examples of how elite
groups are working closely with social movements. Initially, the paper briefly outlines
the development of corporate front groups and Astroturf groups in democratic countries,
and will then investigate - in depth - the less examined parallel expansion of government
regulated or engineered dissent (focusing particularly on the recent popular revolutions
in Eastern Europe). The paper concludes by offering some suggestions about how these
developments affect civil society and provides recommendations for how social movements
might counteract elite manipulation.

Critical social movements and media reform

Democracy has never been a gift handed down from elites. It is a hard-won prize, perennially
threatened by attempts at economic, cultural and political enclosure, as in the
commodification of biogenetic knowledge, the concentration of media ownership and control
and the securitisation of the state (McNally, 2002). Whether defined around gendered,
ethnic, national, class, environmental or other interests, social movements have long been
the carriers of liberatory social change. Critical social movements (CSMs) – movements
committed to empowerment of the marginalised, movements that challenge the hegemonies of
dominant groups and institutions – are key to revitalising democracy today.

Mediating Protests: A Critical Examination of the Relation Between the Mass

Media and Social Movements

Social movements come and go, represent all manner of political beliefs, and aim to achieve
their political objectives by influencing a particular target group’s opinion. Some groups
reach out directly to just a few key decision makers or constituencies, while others act
more indirectly, by broadcasting their message to as wide an audience as possible. It has
been suggested that social movements rely on the media for three main services, (1)
mobilisation of political support, (2) legitimisation (or validation) in the mainstreams
discourse, and (3) to broaden the scope of conflicts. Consequently, the quality and nature
of the media coverage that social movements obtain strongly influences how they are
perceived in the public eye – to the extent that good or bad coverage can help to make
or break a social movement. Understanding the relationship between social movements and
the media’s coverage of their actions is crucial, especially if this increasingly important
political resource is to be utilised effectively for progressive social change. This paper
aims to analyse this pivotal relationship from two directions. Firstly, it will examine
incidents where the media facilitates social change via protest actions within democratic
countries, which will be followed by an examination of the media’s role in catalysing
revolutions in authoritarian nations. Secondly, the paper will chart the ways in which
the media (in democratic countries) can act to undermine social movements in the public
sphere. Finally, the paper will attempt to understand why social movement protest coverage
is so variable and conclude by making recommendations for how progressive organisations
may best address their relationships with the media.

Chronic Failures in the War on Terror - From Afghanistan to Somalia

The Senlis Council has studied the conflict dynamics in Afghanistan for over three years,
and has used this as a base to compare the country with another key staging post in the
United States’ self-proclaimed ‘War on Terror', Somalia.

The conflict theatres of Somalia and Afghanistan share a number of similarities, not least
regarding the tactics, techniques and motivations utilised by their respective
insurgencies. Field research undertaken by The Senlis Council in both countries has enabled
the identification of shared dynamics and the interplay between various levels of actor
engaged in both conflicts.

These three levels of conflict can interact on any level, and be used to justify the actions
of one actor at the expense of another. For instance, in the Afghan context, Pashtun tribes
have used the US ‘War on Terror' as a cover to try and settle old tribal scores by
characterising opposing tribes as Taliban sympathisers or part of Al-Qaeda.

Similarly, pre-existing nationalistic struggles have been tapped into by
Al-Qaeda/Taliban/Al-Shabab as recruitment tools for their own campaigns.

The U.S. Power Structure and the Mass Media

This dissertation is an attempt to lay a foundation for research into social science,
particularly regarding the mass media. I will try to describe the American power structure
and to ascertain the place and role of the mass media within it. It is a very difficult
task for many reasons. First, complete information is not easy to find. Secrecy is a very
important part of the maintenance of power and control. Second, social scientists generally
do not seem desirous of studying the subject. Third, the super-rich and powerful do not
wish that the American people discover how the system is run. And, fourth, the subject
is very complex, requiring vast interdisciplinary knowledge. There are two other reasons
for writing on this subject. Assuming that the information contained herein is disseminated
more widely, it can serve to open the eyes of the American people as to how their economic
and political system really works and the role the mass media play in this. Next, it is
hoped that by pointing out the availability of public access channels of the cable
television systems in this country, people might be able to confront the power of the
Establishment media monopoly and communicate more directly with each other, thereby
democratizing the media to some extent and effecting some degree of deligitimation of the
traditional media in the process."

Blowback

When a Muslim cleric was snatched off a street in Milan and flown to Egypt to be interrogated
and tortured in February 2003, it set off an investigation

that has led the CIA, for the first time ever, to be charged by a friendly government for
criminal wrongdoing. Now, faced with the possibility of American agents going to prison,
how has the CIA responded? By turning on its own.

How Would (Democratic) Primaries Have Changed the Results in Caucus States?

During the current Democratic nominating contest, the popular vote has been named as one
of the criteria that should help determine the winner in the eyes of the public and the
super delegates. A major problem with using the popular vote as a measure of democratic
will is that some states have held primaries while others have used caucuses, which have
far lower turnout. According to our analysis, an additional 4.1 million voters likely would
have participated in the Democratic nominating process had every caucus state instead held
a primary - people who are left out of current popular vote tabulations. Additionally,
it is likely that the candidates' share of the popular vote would be different. When we
forecast the likely outcome of hypothetical primaries in caucus states by using their
demographic profiles to project vote outcomes based on national demographic voting
patterns, we find that Barack Obama's lead in the popular vote would increase from about
2.5 percentage points to about 3.5 percentage points. This translates into a lead of more
than 1.3 million votes, up notably from the current number of about 717,000 votes (as of
April 9).

Anniston, Alabama: Pollution, Contamination, and Betrayal

The story of Anniston is a cautionary tale. Monsanto's internal documents, many of which
are being posted here for the first time for the world to finally see, uncover a shocking
story of corporate deception and dangerous secrets. As The Washington Post revealed
[Monsanto Hid Decades of Pollution" (front page, Jan. 1, 2002) and "In Dirt, Water and
Hogs, Town Got Its Fill of PCBs" (Jan. 1, 2002).], Monsanto hid its advanced knowledge
of the health effects and vast PCB pollution problems from the public and - most importantly
- from its closest neighbors, the people of Anniston. While the documents provide a glimpse
into Monsanto's corporate culture, a spokesperson for a Monsanto spin-off corporation,
Solutia, has repeatedly asserted that the company is "really pretty proud of what we did"
and that Monsanto "did what any company would do, even today."

Racial Disparities in the Capital of Capital Punishment

Despite decades of research on race and capital punishment, “reasonably well-controlled”
studies have not been conducted in the five most active death states: Texas, Virginia,
Oklahoma, Missouri, and Florida. To begin to address this limitation, the current research
examines the impact of race on the District Attorney’s (DA) decision to pursue a death
trial and the jury’s decision to impose a death sentence against adult defendants indicted
for capital murder in Harris County (Houston), Texas from 1992 to 1999 (n =504). The
findings challenge conventional wisdom by suggesting that the race of the defendant and
victim are both pivotal in the capital of capital punishment: death was more likely to
be imposed against black defendants than white defendants; death was more likely to be
imposed on behalf of white victims than black victims. The black-white disparities stem
from an intriguing interplay between race, the seriousness of a murder, and the stages
of capital litigation. The current research also represents one of the few attempts to
extend traditional black-white comparisons to include Hispanics; no Hispanic-white
disparities were observed. The research concludes with a call to action for scholars to
initiate “reasonably well controlled” studies in the most active death jurisdictions in
the United States.

Military or Market-Driven Empire Building: 1950-2008

From the middle of the 19th century but especially after the Second World War, two models
of empire building competed on a world scale

One predominantly based on military conquests, involving direct invasions, proxy invading
armies and subsidized separatist military forces; and the other predominantly based on
large-scale, long-term economic penetration via a combination of investments, loans,
credits and trade in which ‘market’ power and the superiority (greater productivity) in
the means of production led to the construction of a virtual empire.

But Will the Media Ever Report on Them?

Pentagon Propaganda Documents Go Online

Eight thousand pages of documents related to the Pentagon's illegal propaganda campaign,
known as the Pentagon military analyst program, are now online for the world to see,
although in a format that makes it impossible to easily search them and therefore difficult
to read and dissect. This trove includes the documents pried out of the Pentagon by David
Barstow and used as the basis for his stunning investigation that appeared in the New York
Times on April 20, 2008.

The Pentagon program, which clearly violated US law against covert government propaganda,
embedded more than 75 retired military officers -- most of them with financial ties to
war contractors -- into the TV networks as "message surrogates" for the Bush
Administration. To date, every major commercial TV network has failed to report this story,
covering up their complicity and keeping the existence of this scandal from their
audiences.

News of the Pentagon's online posting of the documents came from Joe Trento of the National
Security News Service, who notes that NSNS provided the New York Times "limited information
about a military office early in the reporting process."

More than two weeks after the New York Times reported on the Penatgon's military analyst
program to sell controversial policies such as the invasion of Iraq, the broadcast
television news outlets implicated in the program are hoping to tough out the scandal by
refusing to report it. Recently Media Matters of America (MMA) reported that, according
to a search of the Nexis database, "the three major broadcast networks -- ABC, CBS, and
NBC -- have still not mentioned the report at all."

The Pew Excellence in Journalism project has a chart showing that " there was virtually
no mainstream media follow up to The Times’ expose" with the only national TV coverage
being the introduction segment and a live debate (featuring me) on the PBS NewsHour.

Congresswoman Rosa L. DeLauro and three dozen colleagues have sent a letter to the
Department of Defense Inspector General calling for an investigation of this "propaganda
campaign aimed at deliberately misleading the American public."

Here is the official Pentagon website with the 8,000 pages of documents, the most
interesting and revealing of them previously secret and only available to the Pentagon
and the New York Times:

Routinely Targeted

Attacks On Civilians In Somalia

The dire human rights and humanitarian crisis facing the people of Somalia has been revealed
in a groundbreaking new Amnesty International report.

First-hand testimony from scores of traumatized survivors of the conflict is included in
the report, which exposes the violations and abuses they have suffered at the hands of
a complex mix of perpetrators.

These include Ethiopian and Transitional Federal Government (TFG) troops on the one hand,
as well as armed groups on the other. For many civilians, there is nowhere to go to escape
the violence.

“The people of Somalia are being killed, raped, tortured; looting is widespread and entire
neighbourhoods are being destroyed,” said Michelle Kagari, Deputy Director of Amnesty
International's Africa Programme.

Witnesses told Amnesty International of an increasing incidence of what it locally termed
as “slaughtering” or “killing like goats” by Ethiopian troops, referring to killing by
slitting the throat. The victims of these killings are often left lying in pools of blood
in the streets until armed fighters, including snipers, move out of the area and relatives
can collect their bodies.

“The testimony we received strongly suggests that war crimes and possibly crimes against
humanity have been committed by all parties to the conflict in Somalia – and no one is
being held accountable,” said Michelle Kagari.

“The human rights and humanitarian situation in Somalia is growing worse by the day. This
report represents the voices of ordinary Somalis, and their plea to the international
community to take action to end the attacks against them, including those committed by
internationally-supported TFG and Ethiopian forces."

Security in many parts of Mogadishu is non-existent and the entire population of the city
bears the scars of having witnessed or experienced egregious violations of human rights
and international humanitarian law.

“There is no safety for civilians, wherever they run. Those fleeing violence in Mogadishu
are attacked on the road and those lucky enough to reach a camp or settlement face further
violence and dire conditions.”
The Transitional Federal Government, as the recognized government of Somalia, bears the
primary responsibility for protecting the human rights of the Somali people. However, the
Ethiopian military, which is taking a leading role in backing the TFG, also bears
responsibility.

“Attacks on civilians by all parties must stop immediately. Also, the international
community must bear its own responsibility for not putting consistent pressure on the TFG
or the Ethiopian government to stop their armed forces from committing egregious human
rights violations.”

Amnesty International has urged that the capacity of the UN Political Office for Somalia
be strengthened, and that AMISOM – and any succeeding UN peacekeeping mission – be mandated
to protect civilians and include a strong human rights component with the capacity to
investigate human rights violations. The organization has also called for the UN arms
embargo on Somalia to be strengthened.

Cargill: A Corporate Threat to Food and Farming

International giant Cargill is one of a relatively small number of powerful corporations
that control the global agricultural system. Cargill, among those with the widest and
deepest influence, describes itself as an “international provider of food, agricultural
and risk management products and services. With 158,000 employees in 66 countries, the
company is committed to using its knowledge and experience to collaborate with customers
to help them succeed.” Still in family hands, Cargill is the largest privately owned company
in the world. Its grain division is the number one source of grains and oil-seeds in North
America for domestic use, as well as exporting, and it is a major player in the beef and
poultry industries.

With so many business sectors, operating divisions, and locations across the globe, keeping
tabs on the specifics of Cargill is difficult. But in general, the Minneapolis-based
company markets, processes, packs, distributes, transports, and trades agricultural,
food, industrial, and other products and services. It is a leading grain processor and
a top U.S. meat packer, but more importantly, it greatly influences – and some analysts
would say it controls – both markets. Cargill deals with wheat, corn, and oilseeds; meats,
poultry, and fish; industrial products such as biofuels, oils, lubricants, and salts;
health and pharmaceutical products; and agricultural services such as animal feed and
fertilizers.

In short, Cargill sells farmers many of the inputs they need, and buys much of their output
for trading and processing. The corporate behemoth has created a worldwide agricultural
system in which it is both buyer and seller, and as a result has reaped massive profits.
It reported profits of $2.34 billion for the 2007 fiscal year. Unfortunately, Cargill has
not been as successful in protecting the rights of consumers, workers, or the environment
as it has been in adapting profitable business strategies.

Cargill threatens the environment in both the United States and abroad. It has spilled
toxic waste into the San Francisco Bay, violated the Clean Air Act with harmful emissions,
and deforested key habitats for endangered species in South America.

And Cargill treats people no better than it does the environment. Its operations are known
to pay their workers low wages, expose them to dangerous pesticides, and renege on critical
promises made to the community by a corporation it acquired. It is even alleged to force
children to labor under hazardous conditions. Cargill shortchanges American farmers by
transferring production overseas.

Because Cargill’s loyalty lies in profits, it does not hesitate to use new and potentially
dangerous food technologies if they may bring in revenue. Cargill pushes genetically
modified products, invests in irradiation, and lobbies for the right to use carbon monoxide
to artificially imbue red meat with the look of freshness long past its expiration date.

This report, Cargill: A Corporate Threat to Food and Farming, will show that Cargill’s
vast influence on global agricultural trade threatens the health of consumers, family
farmers, the environment, and even entire economies and governments.

Not Counting Canadians: The Security and Prosperity Partnership and public opinion

On April 21, 2008, Prime Minister Stephen Harper traveled to New Orleans to attend the
fourth annual North American Leaders’ Summit to discuss progress to the Security and
Prosperity Partnership (SPP) with his American and Mexican counterparts. It has been four
years since this process began, and no one beyond an elite group of corporate CEOs has
been asked how they feel about the SPP—until now.

Alien Nation: Common Sense About America's Immigration Disaster (e-Book)

Forbes senior editor Brimelow's alarmist, slashing anti-immigration manifesto is likely
to stir debate. He maintains that the 1965 Immigration Act and its recent amplifications
choked off immigration from northern and western Europe while selectively reopening U.S.
borders to a huge influx of minorities from Third World countries. Many of these latter
entrants are unskilled and require welfare support, and those who do work may adversely
affect opportunities for poorer Americans, especially blacks, according to Brimelow.
Because of multicultural programs, he charges, the new immigrants are not expected to
assimilate, and thus they retain their separateness. Illegal immigration “two to three
million entries a year” plus one million legal immigrants annually are causing, by his
reckoning, an "ethnic revolution," because Asians, Hispanics, Middle Easterners and others
shift America's balance away from the white majority, creating a strife-torn, multiracial
society. Brimelow calls for an end to all illegal immigration, a drastic cutback in legal
immigration, policies favoring skilled immigrants and elimination of all payments and free
public education for illegals and their children.

Human Security Brief 2007

Challenging the expert consensus that the threat of global terrorism is increasing, the
Human Security Brief 2007 reveals a sharp net decline in the incidence of terrorist violence
around the world.

Fatalities from terrorism have declined by some 40 percent, while the loose-knit terror
network associated with Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda has suffered a dramatic collapse in
popular support throughout the Muslim world.

The Brief also describes and analyses the extraordinary, but largely unnoticed, positive
change in sub-Saharan Africa's security landscape. The number of conflicts being waged
in the region more than halved between 1999 and 2006; the combat toll dropped by 98 percent.

Finally, the Brief updates the findings of the 2005 Human Security Report, and demonstrates
that the decline in the total number of armed conflicts and combat deaths around the world
has continued. The number of military coups has also continued decline, as have the number
of campaigns of deadly violence waged against civilians.

Full Text: Iran's "Package for Constructive Negotiations"

On 13 May 2008, Iran presented its proposal for talks with the 5+1 group, entitled, "Package
for Constructive Negotiations", to the United Nations.

Contrary to the expectations of many analysts, the package does not seek security
guarantees from the US. It rejects the current carrot and stick approach of the 5+1 group
and instead proposes wide-ranging and comprehensive negotiations with the goal of reaching
mutually beneficial solutions for collaboration on (1) political and security issues, (ii)
economic issues and (iii) the nuclear issue.

On the nuclear programme, while reiterating Iran's position that it will not suspend
enrichment activities which are within its inalienable rights and fully supervised by the
IAEA, the document expresses Iran's willingness to negotiate the implementation by the
IAEA of an improved and a more strict inspection regime. It also proposes a committee to
follow up nuclear disarmament as required by Article VI of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation
Treaty.

The document also for the first time offers broad discussions regarding contentious issues
such as human rights and democracy as well as cooperation to assist the Palestinian people
to resolve their 60 year long problem.

US Genocide in Iraq

The United States has committed and sponsored the crime of genocide in Iraq. Outlining
the legal meaning of genocide and following Jean-Paul Sartre’s analysis of the nature of
colonial war, this paper asserts that on the basis of patterns of purposive action a case
for intentional genocide can and should be made under the provisions of the Genocide
Convention. While the United States has destroyed the state of Iraq, contaminating its
environment and creating conditions of mass societal trauma, including the killing of
2,500,000 over 17 years, it has failed and cannot succeed to destroy the nation of Iraq.
Being the lynchpin of US attempts to pursue empire by military means, it is the duty of
all who struggle for justice to oppose the US genocide wrought on Iraq, move to ensure
the prosecution of all those responsible and complicit, and stand firm in solidarity with
the Iraqi people and its legal and legitimate resistance.

Iran, Israel, and Nuclear War

The latest IAEA report on Iran again illustrates the risks of nuclear war in the Middle
East.

The attached briefing provides the material used in a scenario analysis and interactive
game that looks at some of the consequences of a future nuclear exchange between Israel
and Iran, and the possible impact of its expansion to cover targets in Syria, Egypt, and
the Gulf.

There is no way to predict the forces each side will have in the future, or how they might
target those forces and use them in war. It does seem clear, however, that both sides would
probably be forced to target the other's population centers in any scenario that escalated
beyond an initial demonstrative strike.

It also seems likely that such a conflict would quickly become existential in the sense
that both sides would seek to inflict the maximum possible casualties on its opponent,
and to destroy its ability to recover as a nation.

The analysis indicates that Israeli might have the near to mid-term advantage in such a
struggle, at least in terms of the ability to inflict more damage on the Persian ethnic
population and economy of Iran. Iran is much larger than Israel, but its population is
heavily urbanized and extremely vulnerable to boosted and thermonuclear weapons.

This advantage seems likely to continue until Iran obtained boosted or thermonuclear
weapons. The outcome would be so costly to both sides, however, any such advantage would
little or no practical value. It is unclear that either nation could reconstitute itself
on anything like a prewar basis, if at all.

Phase II Report on Prewar Iraq Intelligence

Intelligence Activities Relating To Iraq Conducted By The Policy Counterterrorism
Evaluation Group And The Office Of Special Plans Within The Office Of The Undersecretary
Of Defense And Policy

Statements and implications by the President and Secretary of State suggesting that Iraq
and al-Qa’ida had a partnership, or that Iraq had provided al-Qa’ida with weapons training,
were not substantiated by the intelligence.

Statements by the President and the Vice President indicating that Saddam Hussein was
prepared to give weapons of mass destruction to terrorist groups for attacks against the
United States were contradicted by available intelligence information.

Statements by President Bush and Vice President Cheney regarding the postwar situation
in Iraq, in terms of the political, security, and economic, did not reflect the concerns
and uncertainties expressed in the intelligence products.

Statements by the President and Vice President prior to the October 2002 National
Intelligence Estimate regarding Iraq’s chemical weapons production capability and
activities did not reflect the intelligence community’s uncertainties as to whether such
production was ongoing.

The Secretary of Defense’s statement that the Iraqi government operated underground WMD
facilities that were not vulnerable to conventional airstrikes because they were
underground and deeply buried was not substantiated by available intelligence information.
The Intelligence Community did not confirm that Muhammad Atta met an Iraqi intelligence
officer in Prague in 2001 as the Vice President repeatedly claimed.

Tar Sands

Feeding U.S. Refinery Expansions with Dirty Fuel

Over two thirds of currently planned expansions of U.S. oil refining capacity are intended
to accommodate heavier, dirtier crude oil from Canadian "tar sands," according to data
on U.S. oil refinery permitting activity under the Clean Air Act ("CAA") recently compiled
and analyzed by the Environmental Integrity Project. Out of the approximately 1.6 million
barrels per day ("bpd") of increased refining capacity currently in the pipeline, about
1.1 million bpd will be devoted to refining tar sand oil. In addition, more than 800,000
bpd of existing conventional crude capacity is planned to be modified to process oil from
tar sands, so that the total increase in tar sands capacity is over 1.9 million bpd, while
conventional crude capacity is undergoing a net decrease of over 300,000 bpd. This is
equivalent to constructing more than sixteen new refineries dedicated to tar sands.
Refining tar sand oil will result in higher air emissions of harmful pollutants such as
sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, sulfuric acid mist, and nitrogen oxides, as well as toxic
metals such as lead and nickel compounds. The consequences of tar sand oil extraction
include the clear-cutting and strip-mining of huge portions of intact boreal forest
ecosystem, the creation of vast un-reclaimable toxic lakes of wastewater, the consumption
of enormous amounts of water and energy, and the production of three times more greenhouse
gas as extracting conventional crude oil.

The Rise Of HMOs

Chapter One: Introduction

To determine factors associated with differential HMO enrollment growth across
metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs), this study examines the periods 1973-1978 and
1988-1993, during which national HMO enrollment grew substantially, and compared the
results to determine the stability of statistical relationships. The study finds that the
availability of physicians and other physician-related factors are strongly associated
with HMO enrollment growth during the 1973-1978 period, but that this is not the case for
the 1988-1993 period. Other associations found for the 1973-1978 period were not found
for 1988-1993. The research strongly suggests that the factors associated with HMO
enrollment growth on the MSA level changed in the 10 years between the two periods. Even
though the national industry was still growing rapidly in 1993, a more detailed examination
of that growth suggests that the industry was shifting from growth to maturity. The observed
transition from continued growth to slow decline during subsequent years reinforces this
suggestion.

Threat from Sleeping Enemies

The Pentagon should “monitor enemy activities in sleep research” says a newly disclosed
report.

Among their findings was the underappreciated significance of sleep and the possibility
of a “sleep gap” (a term not used in the report).

Human Performance

The tasking for this study was to evaluate the potential for adversaries to exploit advances
in Human Performance Modification, and thus create a threat to national security. In making
this assessment, we were asked to evaluate long-term scenarios. We have thus considered
the present state of the art in pharmaceutical intervention in cognition and in
brain-computer interfaces, and considered how possible future developments might proceed
and be used by adversaries.

U.S.-Latin America Relations

A New Direction for a New Reality

Latin America has never mattered more for the United States. The region is the largest
foreign supplier of oil to the United States and a strong partner in the development of
alternative fuels. It is the United States’ fastest-growing trading partner, as well as
its biggest supplier of illegal drugs. Latin America is also the largest source of U.S.
immigrants, both documented and not. All of this reinforces deep U.S. ties with the
region—strategic, economic, and cultural—but also deep concerns.

This report makes clear that the era of the United States as the dominant influence in
Latin America is over. Countries in the region have not only grown stronger but have
expanded relations with others, including China and India. U.S. attention has also focused
elsewhere in recent years, particularly on challenges in the Middle East. The result is
a region shaping its future far more than it shaped its past.

At the same time Latin America has made substantial progress, it also faces ongoing
challenges. Democracy has spread, economies have opened, and populations have grown more
mobile. But many countries have struggled to reduce poverty and inequality and to provide
for public security.

The Council on Foreign Relations established an Independent Task Force to take stock of
these changes and assess their consequences for U.S. policy toward Latin America. The Task
Force finds that the long-standing focus on trade, democracy, and drugs, while still
relevant, is inadequate. The Task Force recommends reframing policy around four critical
areas—poverty and inequality, public security, migration, and energy security—that are
of immediate concern to Latin America’s governments and citizens.

The Task Force urges that U.S. efforts to address these challenges be done in coordination
with multilateral institutions, civil society organizations, governments, and local
leaders. By focusing on areas of mutual concern, the United States and Latin American
countries can develop a partnership that supports regional initiatives and the countries’
own progress. Such a partnership would also promote U.S. objectives of fostering stability,
prosperity, and democracy throughout the hemisphere

Shaping the Iraq Inheritance

American policy in Iraq will undergo two critical transitions throughout the remainder
of 2008 and into early 2009: movement to a new U.S. posture in Iraq; and a wartime transition
to a new administration. It is vital that both are handled in a way that best advances
U.S. interests in Iraq and the region. Yet neither is being paid sufficient attention.
Shaping the Iraq Inheritance outlines America’s interests in Iraq and the region, analyzes
recent security and political trends, presents a framework for understanding U.S.
strategic options, and makes recommendations for how the Bush administration, the
military, and Congress can best prepare for the dangerous period ahead.

The report places America’s interests in Iraq within a regional and global context, and
suggests that the United States must simultaneously attempt to avoid a failed state in
Iraq while not strategically over-committing to Iraq. The report examines current security
and political trends, and suggests that success in Iraq requires additional steps toward
political accommodation and improved governance. The report then outlines a policy of
conditional engagement—a strategy that initiates a phased, negotiated redeployment of
U.S. forces from Iraq while conditioning residual support to the Iraqi government on
continued political progress—and argues that it offers the best chance of achieving
sustainable stability in Iraq while balancing U.S. commitments worldwide.

Finally, the report outlines steps that must be taken to smooth the handover of Iraq policy
from this administration to the next. The Bush administration must prioritize prepara tion
in three areas over the next six months: the development of an interagency transition plan;
enhancing the situational awareness of both the Republican and Democratic Presidential
candidates and their top national security advisers on Iraq; and hand-tooling personnel
transitions for senior positions critical to Iraq policy and operations.

From Glory Boy to PW Songbird

U.S. Wire Service Headlined Story

The story reported that McCain collaborated in psywar offensives aimed at American
servicemen. "The broadcast was beamed to American servicemen in South Vietnam as a part
of a propaganda series attempting to counter charges by U.S. Defense Secretary Melvin Laird
that American prisoners are being mistreated in North Vietnam."

On one occasion, General Vo Nguyen Giap, the top Vietnamese commander and a nationalist
celebrity of the time, personally interviewed McCain. His compliance during this command
performance was a moment of affirmation for the Vietnamese. His Vietnamese handlers
thereafter used him regularly as prop at meetings with foreign delegations.

Strategic Significance of America’s Oil Shale Resource

Volume I

"The vast extent of U.S. oil shale resources, amounting to more than 2 trillion barrels,
has been known for a century. [...] The huge resource base has stimulated several prior
commercial attempts to produce oil from oil shale, but these attempts have failed primarily
because of the historically modest cost of petroleum with which it competed. With the
expected future decline in petroleum production historic market forces are poised to change
and this change will improve the economic viability of oil shale,"

Iraq

Rhetoric and reality: the Iraqi refugee crisis

"Omar, a 69-year-old refugee from Baghdad, said he will die a 'slow death' if assistance
is stopped. He and his family have depended on food and medical assistance since they fled
to Syria in 2006."

--UNHCR, May 2008--

Iraq remains one of the most dangerous places in the world. Its refugee crisis is worsening.
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), since the US-led
invasion of Iraq in March 2003, an estimated 4.7 million have been displaced both within
and outside Iraq and for many the situation is desperate.

A new report by Amnesty International, Rhetoric and reality: the Iraqi refugee crisis,
says that the international community continues to fail to respond to the crisis in a
meaningful way. Countries like Jordan and Syria host most of the refugees but are simply
not equipped to meet the needs of all those arriving.
Syria alone may be hosting more than a million refugees. As of 2007, only 1 percent of
the total Iraqi displaced population was estimated to be in the industrialized world.

To mark World Refugee Day, Amnesty International has called on the international community
and, in particular, those states who participated in the US-led invasion of Iraq, to take
real steps to alleviate the suffering of those displaced. The organization said these
countries must urgently act on their responsibility to assist the host nations and
humanitarian organizations operating in the region to support the large numbers of
refugees.

"Many refugees are finding it difficult to survive," said Philip Luther, Deputy Director
of Amnesty International's Middle East and North Africa Programme. "They are banned from
working and unable to pay rents, buy adequate food for themselves and their families, or
obtain medical treatment. Those lucky enough to escape Iraq rely on savings which, for
many, are rapidly running out."

Many families are destitute and facing impossible choices and new risks, like having to
resort to child labour and the prospect of being forced through circumstances to undertake
"voluntary" return to Iraq.

Humanitarian agencies cannot cope with growing demands as more refugees need help with
the basics to survive. The UNHCR had planned that by the end of the year it would be
distributing food to around 300,000 people in Syria alone. However, the agency recently
announced that inadequate funding means that, by August 2008, it will not be able to "cover
all basic health needs of Iraqis, and many serious and chronically ill Iraqis will not
be able to receive their monthly medication."

Current food aid for 150,000 refugees in Syria and Jordan could be reduced, forcing many
Iraqis "into further destitution and raise the likelihood of higher malnutrition rates
and increased child labor."

Amnesty International believes it is imperative that the international community increase
its contributions to humanitarian agencies such as UNHCR, as well as to the countries
hosting Iraqi refugees. Furthermore, there must be a real and sustained effort to resettle
vulnerable refugees, such as those with serious medical conditions, to countries where
they will receive adequate care.

Manal (not her real name), a refugee living in Damascus, told Amnesty International in
February 2008 that three of her children, aged between six and 15 years, work so the family
can survive.

Her six-year-old boy sells chewing gum in the street, for about one US dollar a day; her
10-year-old daughter sells chewing gum about three days a week; her oldest son polishes
shoes, for the equivalent of about US$2 a day. Her daughter is the only one who goes to
school. The family fled to Syria in 2006 after their house in Baghdad was damaged by
explosions.

Despite claims among the international community that an "improvement" in the security
situation in Iraq has led to people "voluntarily" returning, in reality, most return
because they have run out of money and can no longer survive. They return despite the real
danger to their lives.

Apart from failing to provide adequate practical and financial support, some states are
also rejecting the asylum claims of Iraqis at an alarming rate. More European states are
deporting rejected asylum-seekers to Iraq, including countries like Sweden, once a
positive example to its European neighbours. Some states are using indirect ways to return
people to Iraq, for example cutting off assistance to rejected Iraqi asylum-seekers and
therefore forcing them to return "voluntarily".

The failure to respond to the crisis is contributing to the severe deterioration of human
rights protection for individuals forced to flee their homes in search of safety. Support
is desperately needed so that host countries in the region can meet their own
responsibilities in allowing access to all those fleeing violence and human rights abuses.

US State Department, FOIA record

It is worth noting what the US Ambassador to El Salvador, Robert E. White (now the president
for the Center for International Policy) had to say as early as 1980, in State Department
documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act:

[I]The major, immediate threat to the existence of this government is the right-wing
violence. In the city of San Salvador, the hired thugs of the extreme right, some of them
well-trained Cuban and Nicaraguan terrorists, kill moderate left leaders and blow up
government buildings. In the countryside, elements of the security forces torture and kill
the campesinos, shoot up their houses and burn their crops. At least two hundred refugees
from the countryside arrive daily in the capital city. This campaign of terror is
radicalizing the rural areas just as surely as Somoza's National Guard did in Nicaragua.
Unfortunately, the command structure of the army and the security forces either tolerates
or encourages this activity. These senior officers believe or pretend to believe that they
are eliminating the guerillas.[/I]

The Fight For Good Jobs hits at the heart of what is wrong with Los Angeles – a diminishing
middle class, a place where 3.7 million live in poverty, home to the low wage Capital of
the country and a place where the dream of owning a home is often unattainable. Today,
one third of the county’s 3 million full-time workers earn less than $25,000 a year, an
income not even near the $133,506 needed to purchase a median (549,000) priced home.

The Last Resort: Consequences of Preventive Military Action against Iran

Accepted wisdom suggests that preventive military action against Iran's nuclear program
would entail significant risks and uncertain prospects of success. Much of the public
debate surrounding these risks and uncertainties has focused on strictly
military-technical considerations. Although important, these issues do not address the
key political and contextual questions underlying any discussion of prevention and
deterrence. For example, how would Iran -- and the international community -- respond to
military strikes? Would such action convince the regime to permanently abandon its nuclear
activities, or would Tehran simply rebuild? And what effect would such action have on
subsequent diplomatic or military efforts?

In this paper -- the fifth entry in The Washington Institute's "Agenda: Iran" series --
Patrick Clawson and Michael Eisenstadt scrutinize these and other questions in an effort
to understand exactly what preventive action would entail if the diplomatic road reaches
a dead end. In doing so, they touch on the various scenarios under which such action might
unfold, emphasizing the crucial role that context -- including the international political
climate, Tehran's stance toward its nonproliferation commitments, public opinion in the
United States and Iran, and similar factors -- would play in the success of any preventive
strategy. Whether military force is viewed as a threat to gain diplomatic leverage or an
actual "last resort," policymakers must come to a realistic understanding of its
consequences if they hope to end the Iranian nuclear threat for the long term.

“Osirak Redux?

Assessing Israeli Capabilities to Destroy Iranian Nuclear Facilities”

Raas And Long on whether Israel can destroy Iran's nuclear facilities

Abstract:

Does Israel have the ability to conduct a military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities
similar to its 1981 strike on Iraq’s Osirak reactor? The Israeli Air Force has significantly
upgraded its equipment since the early 1980s, but the Iranian nuclear complex is a much
harder target than was the Osirak reactor. Iran has three facilities that are critical
for nuclear weapons production: a uranium conversion facility, an enrichment facility,
and a heavy-water production plant and associated plutonium production reactor. This
article analyzes possible interactions of Israel’s improved air force, including the
addition of F-15I aircraft and U.S.-supplied conventional “bunker-buster”
precision-guided munitions, with the Iranian target set and air defense systems. It
concludes that Israel has the capability to attack Iran’s nuclear infrastructure with at
least as much confidence as it had in the 1981 Osirak strike. Beyond the case of Iran,
this finding has implications for the use of precision-guided weapons as a
counterproliferation tool. Precision-guided weapons confer the ability to reliably attack
hard and deeply buried targets with conventional, rather than nuclear, weapons.
Intelligence on the location of nuclear sites is thus the primary limiting factor of
military counterproliferation.

America: A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction (e-Book)

Cheeky, irreverent and playfully ingenuous, this abbreviated history of democracy is
everything one would expect from the writers of Comedy Central's fake news program, which
recently (and somewhat scandalously) won the Television Critics Association's award for
outstanding news and public affairs series. The book is laid out like a textbook, with
"Discussion Questions" ("Why do you think the Framers made the Constitution so
soul-crushingly boring?"), "Classroom Activities" ("Using felt and yarn, make a hand
puppet of Clarence Thomas. Ta-da! You're Antonin Scalia!") and plenty of amusing graphics,
including a board game that resembles the game Life but which follows a presidential term:
"Optimistic press release on economy ineffective. Spin again." No one evades the authors'
scrutiny, not even the Pilgrims, who came to America "to escape religious persecution...
create a society where they could worship as they pleased and one day, God willing, even
do some persecuting of their own." The media fares the worst, however. An entire chapter
is devoted to telling the "inspirational" story of how the media "transformed itself from
a mere public necessity into an entertaining profit center for ever-expanding corporate
empires." But if this and other criticisms kindle a few unpatriotic feelings, a section
describing how worse off the rest of the world is should buoy spirits. From its dedication
("To the huddled masses—Keep yearnin'!") to its final chapter, which lampoons the 2004
presidential candidates, this humorous sendup of American politics never fails to
entertain, poke fun and provoke thought.

Turkey as a US Security Partner

Turkey has long been an important U.S. ally, but especially with the end of the Cold War,
the relationship has been changing. Divergences between U.S. and Turkish interests have
grown, in part because of Turkey’s relationships with its neighbors and the tension between
its Western identity and its Middle Eastern orientation. Further, relations with the
European Union have also deteriorated of late. As a result, Ankara has come to feel that
it can no longer rely on its traditional allies, and Turkey is likely to be a more difficult
and less predictable partner in the future. While Turkey will continue to want good ties
to the United States, it is likely to be drawn more heavily into the Middle East by the
Kurdish issue and Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Consequently, the tension between Turkey’s
Western identity and Middle Eastern orientation is likely to grow even more.

Bridge or Barrier? Turkey and the West After the Cold War

This report explores the roots of Turkey's western orientation and the prospects for
Turkish relations with Europe and the United States after the Cold War. The study indicates
that Turkey's basic western orientation will almost certainly hold and that the prospects
for Turkey formally joining the European Community have not improved despite Turkish
support in the Gulf War. Turkey's prospects for inclusion in new European security
arrangements will remain poor, and Turkey will become increasingly distinctive and perhaps
isolated within the NATO alliance. It also finds that if Europe excludes Turkey, then the
significance of the bilateral relationship with the United States will grow and that U.S.
and Turkish interests are likely to remain broadly congruent. Given these findings, the
United States should strive to promote Turkey's strategic importance in Europe and the
Middle East, avoid pressing Ankara for a formal expansion of defense cooperation, consider
the potential role of Turkey as a conduit for western aid to the southern republics of
the former Soviet Union, seek the development of a more mature and diversified relationship
mixing traditional security assistance with expansion of political and economic ties, and
continue playing an active role in promoting a Cyprus settlement.

House Bill N0. 2280

HB 2280 would prohibit officials, during a declared state of

emergency, from seizing firearms not otherwise prohibited by

law, or from requiring registration of firearms not required to be

registered under state law. An individual aggrieved by a

violation of this bill could bring action in court seeking redress

against a person for deprivation of rights provided by the bill,

and for return of a firearm seized in violation of the bill.
Reasonable attorney’s fees would be awarded if the individual

prevailed in court. The bill also would amend existing law by

removing the Governor’s specific authority to suspend or limit

the sale, dispensing or transportation of firearms during a

declared state of disaster emergency.

High Flyers: How Private Jet Travel Is Straining the System, Warming the Planet, and Costing

As Americans prepare to pay extra for checked bags, wait in long lines, and endure
increasingly crowded commercial flights, super-wealthy private jet owners are enjoying
tax breaks and luxury at the public’s expense.
The report criticizes government inaction to rein in gas-guzzling, sky-crowding private
jets, and the super-wealthy High Flyers who dodge security restrictions, carbon costs,
and taxes.

Securing, Stabilizing, and Rebuilding Iraq: Progress Report: Some Gains Made, Updated
Strategy Needed

Since 2001, Congress has appropriated about $640 billion for the global war on terrorism,
the majority of this for operations in Iraq. In January 2007, the President announced The
New Way Forward to stem violence in Iraq and enable the Iraqi government to foster national
reconciliation. This new strategy established goals and objectives to achieve over 12 to
18 months, or by July 2008. GAO discusses progress in meeting key goals in The New Way
Forward: (1) improve security conditions; (2) develop capable Iraqi security forces; and
help the Iraqi government (3) enact key legislation, (4) spend capital budgets, and (5)
provide essential services. GAO also discusses U.S. strategies for Iraq. GAO reviewed
documents and interviewed officials from U.S. agencies, the United Nations, and the Iraqi
government. GAO also had staff stationed in Baghdad. Since May 2003, GAO has issued over
130 Iraq-related audits, which provided baseline information for this assessment. GAO
prepared this report under the Comptroller General's authority.

The New Way Forward responded to failures in prior strategies that prematurely transferred
security responsibilities to Iraqi forces or belatedly responded to growing sectarian
violence. Overall violence, as measured by enemy-initiated attacks, fell about 70 percent
in Iraq, from about 180 attacks per day in June 2007 to about 50 attacks per day in February
2008. Security gains have largely resulted from (1) the increase in U.S. combat forces,
(2) the creation of nongovernmental security forces such as Sons of Iraq, and (3) the Mahdi
Army's declaration of a cease fire. Average daily attacks were at higher levels in March
and April before declining in May 2008. The security environment remains volatile and
dangerous. The number of trained Iraqi forces has increased from 323,000 in January 2007
to 478,000 in May 2008; many units are leading counterinsurgency operations. However, the
Department of Defense reported in March 2008 that the number of Iraqi units capable of
performing operations without U.S. assistance has remained at about 10 percent. Several
factors have complicated the development of capable security forces, including the lack
of a single unified force, sectarian and militia influences, and continued dependence on
U.S. and coalition forces. The Iraqi government has enacted key legislation to return some
Ba'athists to government, give amnesty to detained Iraqis, and define provincial powers.
However, it has not yet enacted other important legislation for sharing oil resources or
holding provincial elections. Efforts to complete the constitutional review have also
stalled. A goal of The New Way Forward was to facilitate the Iraqis' efforts to enact all
key legislation by the end of 2007. Between 2005 and 2007, Iraq spent only 24 percent of
the $27 billion it budgeted for its own reconstruction efforts. More specifically, Iraq's
central ministries, responsible for security and essential services, spent only 11 percent
of their capital investment budgets in 2007--down from similarly low rates of 14 and 13
percent in the 2 prior years. Violence and sectarian strife, shortage of skilled labor,
and weak procurement and budgeting systems have hampered Iraq's efforts to spend its
capital budgets. Although oil production has improved for short periods, the May 2008
production level of about 2.5 million barrels per day (mbpd) was below the U.S. goal of
3 mbpd. The daily supply of electricity met only about half of demand in early May 2008.
Conversely, State reports that U.S. goals for Iraq's water sector are close to being
reached. The unstable security environment, corruption, and lack of technical capacity
have contributed to the shortfalls. The Departments disagreed with our recommendation,
stating that The New Way Forward strategy remains valid but the strategy shall be reviewed
and refined as necessary. We reaffirm the need for an updated strategy given the important
changes that have occurred in Iraq since January 2007. An updated strategy should build
on recent gains, address unmet goals and objectives and articulate the U.S. strategy beyond
July 2008.

U.S. Supreme Court Rejects Death Penalty for Child Rape

Kennedy v. Louisiana, No. 07-343

Louisiana charged petitioner with the aggravated rape of his then-8year-

old stepdaughter. He was convicted and sentenced to death under

a state statute authorizing capital punishment for the rape of achild under 12. The State
Supreme Court affirmed, rejecting petitioner’s

reliance on Coker v. Georgia, 433 U. S. 584, which barred the use of the death penalty
as punishment for the rape of an adult woman but left open the question which, if any,
other nonhomicide crimes can be punished by death consistent with the Eighth Amendment.

Reasoning that children are a class in need of special protection,

the state court held child rape to be unique in terms of the harmit inflicts upon the victim
and society and concluded that, short offirst-degree murder, there is no crime more
deserving of death. The court acknowledged that petitioner would be the first person
executedsince the state law was amended to authorize the death penalty for child rape in
1995, and that Louisiana is in the minority of jurisdictions

authorizing death for that crime. However, emphasizing that four more States had
capitalized child rape since 1995 and at least eight others had authorized death for other
nonhomicide crimes, aswell as that, under Roper v. Simmons, 543 U. S. 551, and Atkins v.
Virginia, 536 U. S. 304, it is the direction of change rather than the numerical count
that is significant, the court held petitioner’s death sentence to be constitutional.

Held: The Eighth Amendment bars Louisiana from imposing the deathpenalty for the rape of
a child where the crime did not result, and was not intended to result, in the victim’s
death. Pp. 8–36.

No Defense: Soldier Violence against Palestinian Detainees

Reveals the widespread phenomenon of violence against bound Palestinian detainees by IDF
soldiers and the almost absolute indifference of the IDF, the Ministry of Defense and the
Knesset towards the existence of this phenomenon and the need to take action in order to
eradicate it completely.

The report focuses on a large number of incidents of violence against detainees after they
had been arrested, bound, and no longer present a danger to the soldiers. Abuse occurs
at various junctions - immediately following arrest, in the vehicle transporting the
detainees, and during the time they are held in IDF military camps prior to their transfer
to interrogation and detention facilities. At times abusive practices involve dogs that
are employed by the military forces during arrest operations and transported in vehicles
along with Palestinian detainees. On certain occasions, the ill treatment of Palestinian
detainees is highly violent resulting in serious injury. At other times, abuse manifests
itself in a routine of beating, degradation and additional abuse. Minors, who must be
granted special protection under both Israeli and International Law, are also victims of
abuse. The soldiers who carry out arrests do not treat minors with special care and at
times – as revealed by various testimonies – exploit their weakness.

The report reveals that although the phenomenon of violence against Palestinian detainees
by soldiers is blatantly illegal, it is reinforced by a weak legal system which conducts
only a small number of investigations and legal proceedings that concern cases of abuse
by soldiers. Particularly prominent is the almost absolute indifference to the phenomenon
of the authorities, including the military hierarchy, the Minister and Ministry of Defense,
the Knesset and the State Comptroller. The report also discloses that the IDF has no
directives which regulate the treatment of Palestinian detainees in the period of time
between their arrest and their placement in detention and interrogation authorities.

The report is based on 90 detailed testimonies that reached PCATI relating to the arrest
of Palestinians between June 2006 and October 2007. Parts of these testimonies are quoted
in the report. Moreover, the large number of complaints point to a much wider phenomenon,
when it is taken into consideration that many Palestinians who are injured during arrest
do not complain, and that the complaints filed by many detainees do not reach PCATI. The
report is based, in addition, on the testimonies of soldiers and statements of commanders
and other relevant persons which shed additional light on the phenomenon and the failure
of the army to act upon it.

The importance of the appropriate treatment of prisoners and detainees is in the limelight
this week because the issue of the release of Israeli prisoners and missing Israeli soldiers
is in the forefront of the public agenda, and in view of the marking, on Thursday, June
26, of the UN International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. We are witness to inhuman
treatment of the soldiers who are cut off from their families, rendering their loved ones
helpless. The ill treatment of Palestinian detainees, as described in the report, does
not reach such an extreme degree, but it is severe enough to compel all of us to act in
order to bring an end to the phenomenon.

District Of Columbia Et Al    v. Heller

Certiorari To The United States Court Of Appeals For

The District Of Columbia Circuit

District of Columbia law bans handgun possession by making it a crime

to carry an unregistered firearm and prohibiting the registration of

handguns; provides separately that no person may carry an unlicensed

handgun, but authorizes the police chief to issue 1-year licenses;

and requires residents to keep lawfully owned firearms
unloaded and disassembled or bound by a trigger lock or similar device.

Respondent Heller, a D. C. special policeman, applied to register

a handgun he wished to keep at home, but the District refused.

He filed this suit seeking, on Second Amendment grounds, to enjoin

the city from enforcing the bar on handgun registration, the licensing

requirement insofar as it prohibits carrying an unlicensed firearm in

the home, and the trigger-lock requirement insofar as it prohibits the

use of functional firearms in the home. The District Court dismissed

the suit, but the D. C. Circuit reversed, holding that the Second

Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess firearms and

that the city’s total ban on handguns, as well as its requirement that

firearms in the home be kept nonfunctional even when necessary for

self-defense, violated that right.

No. 07–290.

Iraq - Angry Hearts And Angry Minds

The Senlis Council has maintained an operational base in the southern provinces of
Afghanistan since 2004. Initially aimed at providing a firsthand view of the burgeoning
opium trade, this local presence in Kandahar and Helmand has enabled us to develop an
expertise in many of the issues associated with poppy cultivation.
A particular area of focus has been the resurgence of the Taliban, the movement’s increasing
capacity to disrupt security around the country, and international responses to that
threat. As the revitalised Taliban has entrenched itself, so the capacity of NATO forces
to prevent the contagion from spreading has been increasingly challenged, and the inability
of the international community to respond adequately to that resurgence exposed.

Building upon this foundation, The Senlis Council broadened its examination of other key
theatres within the War on Terror, launching a research platform in Somalia – the first
outside of Afghanistan – in March 2008.

On the ground research in May 2008 a third conflict zone – Iraq – led to this report, and
prompted The Senlis Council to consider an alternative approach to global security issues.
In this report we offer a Situation Report (SITREP) on Iraq, as well as the initial findings
from a series of interviews conducted in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Somalia, and an examination
of what we believe the study of the three conflicts tells us about current global security
policy.

On Point II

Transition to the New Campaign: The United States Army in Operation Iraqi Freedom May 2003
- January 2005

On Point II is the US Army's first historical study of its campaign in Iraq in the decisive
eighteen months following the overthrow of the Baathist regime in April 2003. The book
examines both the high-level decisions that shaped military operations after May 2003 as
well as the effects of those decisions on units and Soldiers who became responsible for
conducting those operations.

The authors, historians at the US Army's Combat Studies Institute at Fort Leavenworth,
Kansas, based this account on hundreds of interviews with key participants and thousands
of primary documents. Critical chapters in this book address the decision to disband the
Iraqi Army, detainee operations (including the incidents at the Abu Ghraib prison),
reconstruction efforts, and the Army's response to the growing insurgency.

At the core of On Point II is the dramatic story of how after May 2003, the US Army reinvented

The Paradoxes of Latin American Development

Latin American development presents us with a rich array of paradoxes, which befuddle the
predictions, prescriptions, and commentaries of writers and academics from the right and
left. Abrupt changes and shifts in the political correlation of forces is matched by
striking structural continuities.

Political advances alternate with sharp reversals as popular movements compete for power
with resurgent ruling class-directed mass mobilizations. Breakdowns in the financial and
productive systems, the flight of capital and the demise of ruling class regimes are
followed by strong capitalist-led economic recovery, the resurgence of business-led
movements and the restoration of capitalist hegemony over the petit bourgeoisie.
Horizontal class anchored movements and trade unions, which overcome ethnic, regional and
local divisions to challenge the capitalist state are displaced by vertical divisions in
which mass-based regional and sectoral capitalist organizations compete over profits.
Hegemonic leadership over vast sectors of the lower middle class, urban and rural poor
oscillates between the downwardly mobile proletariat, organized public employees,
peasantry, and in some cases, the urban unemployed, and organized agro-export elites,
financial and mineral-based multinationals led by big business backed radical right wing
middle class demagogues. Economic recovery and sustained and substantial growth rates
strengthen the political and social power of the ruling class which contributes to
extending and deepening inequalities which exceed those preceding the economic crisis.
The political pendulum shifts from radical left influence ‘in the streets’, to center-left
institutional power, to a resurgence of right-wing ‘street’ and institutional power. Mass
social movements, which occupy and organize failing factories and unproductive landed
estates, are replaced by the restoration of the previous factory bosses and the forcible
displacement of peasants and the vast expansion of agricultural export commodities.

The Last Resort: Consequences of Preventive Military Action against Iran

Accepted wisdom suggests that preventive military action against Iran's nuclear program
would entail significant risks and uncertain prospects of success. Much of the public
debate surrounding these risks and uncertainties has focused on strictly
military-technical considerations. Although important, these issues do not address the
key political and contextual questions underlying any discussion of prevention and
deterrence. For example, how would Iran -- and the international community -- respond to
military strikes? Would such action convince the regime to permanently abandon its nuclear
activities, or would Tehran simply rebuild? And what effect would such action have on
subsequent diplomatic or military efforts?
In this paper -- the fifth entry in The Washington Institute's "Agenda: Iran" series --
Patrick Clawson and Michael Eisenstadt scrutinize these and other questions in an effort
to understand exactly what preventive action would entail if the diplomatic road reaches
a dead end. In doing so, they touch on the various scenarios under which such action might
unfold, emphasizing the crucial role that context -- including the international political
climate, Tehran's stance toward its nonproliferation commitments, public opinion in the
United States and Iran, and similar factors -- would play in the success of any preventive
strategy. Whether military force is viewed as a threat to gain diplomatic leverage or an
actual "last resort," policymakers must come to a realistic understanding of its
consequences if they hope to end the Iranian nuclear threat for the long term.

The Neglected Costs of the Warfare State:

An Austrian Tribute to Seymour Melman

Perhaps no scholar has applied Bastiat’s insights to military expenditures with more
persistence and rigor than Seymour Melman (1917-2004). Melman was a professor of industrial
engineering and operations research at Columbia University. In a scholarly career that
yielded a great many books and articles, he focused much of his energy on the economics
of the warfare and military-oriented state. In large part, Melman’s work amounted to an
extended analysis, in light of Bastiat’s insight, of the costs not only of modern American
wars but also of the defense establishment itself.

The Economic Impact of the Iraq War and Higher Military Spending

In order to get an approximation of the economic impact of the increase in U.S. military
spending associated with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, CEPR commissioned the economic
forecasting company Global Insight to run a simulation with its macroeconomic model. It
produced a simulation of the impact of an increase in annual U.S. military spending equal
to 1 percent of GDP, approximately the actual increase in spending compared with the pre-war
budget. Global Insight's simulation shows higher military spending raises interest rates,
which reduces net exports, housing construction and car sales, thereby slowing the economy
and job creation.

Doctrine For Joint Urban Operations

This publication addresses the planning and conduct of joint urban operations and explains

how they differ from other operations. It focuses on the operational level of war and
addresses

issues across the range of military operations. It provides doctrinal guidance focused
on

capabilities and tasks that are unique to, or significantly challenged by, the urban
environment at

the operational level of warfighting. It does not attempt to replace or reiterate doctrine
in

overlapping areas; instead, it examines the special considerations required when
conducting
operations in the complex modern urban environment.

From Space to Street Corners:

Global South Cities and US Military Technophilia

This article seeks to open up to critical scrutiny the attempts currently being

made to re-engineer post-Cold War US military power to directly confront global

south urbanization. Through analysing the discourses produced by US military

commentators about ‘urban warfare,’ and the purported military and technological

solutions that might allow US forces to dominate and control global south cities in

the future, the paper demonstrates that such environments are being widely

essentialised as spaces which necessarily work to undermine the United States’

military’s high-technology systems for surveillance, reconnaissance and

targeting. The paper shows how, amid the on-going urban insurgency in Iraq,

widescale efforts are being made to ‘urbanise’ these military systems so that US

military forces can attempt to assert high-tech dominance over the fine-grained

geographies of global south cities in the future.

The Implementation of Network-Centric Warfare

Network-centric warfare (NCW), now commonly called network-centric operations (NCO), is
a new military doctrine or theory of war pioneered by the United States Department of
Defense. It seeks to translate an information advantage, enabled in part by information
technology, into a competitive warfighting advantage through the robust networking of well
informed geographically dispersed forces. This networking, combined with changes in
technology, organization, processes, and people—may allow new forms of organizational
behavior. Specifically, the theory contains the following four tenets in its hypotheses:

A robustly networked force improves information sharing;

Information sharing enhances the quality of information and shared situational awareness;

Shared situational awareness enables collaboration and self-synchronization, and enhances
sustainability and speed of command; and

These, in turn, dramatically increase mission effectiveness.

Preparing for the Proven Inevitable

An Urban Operations Training Strategy for America’s Joint Force

Because future military operations are likely to include actions in densely populated,
built-up areas, joint and service training initiatives over the past decade have
increasingly reflected an interest in preparing for such contingencies. To assist the
military community in better orchestrating its resources to improve forcewide readiness
for urban operations, RAND was asked to develop a joint urban training strategy for the
period 2005-2011.

This report presents that strategy and describes the process used to develop it. The study
identifies areas in need of redress and proposes ways in which the services — Army, Navy,
Marine Corps, and Air Force — and other critical components of national capability can
better ready themselves cooperatively for future urban operations.

The strategy is developed by using a modular approach, where a module is a collection of
resources normally associated with a type of facility, simulation, or other capability
used in the design or execution of training. This approach led to a five-step analytical
process: (1) identify joint urban training requirements; (2) identify current and pending
training capabilities; (3) identify the gaps between requirements and capabilities for
the short term (2005–2007) and the longer term (2008–2011); (4) define a set of modules
and assess how well they address the requirements; and (5) define the steps required to
create the strategy, including consideration of the costs of the modules in terms of their
ability to meet requirements and address shortfalls. The strategy described here is
flexible and adaptable; as such it should evolve as new technologies emerge and
international conditions change. It provides guidance and suggests a framework. But most
of all, it imparts a responsibility to develop programs, plans, and guidance that address
the many details needed to implement it.

Development, Democracy and Mass Killings

The 20th century closed with many lamenting civilian killings by the state as its greatest
evil. By one estimate, governments killed as many as 170 million civilians from 1900 to
1987 - more than all the soldiers killed in the wars in the 20th century. This new working
paper, co-authored by CGD non-resident fellow William Easterly, explores the relationship
between the occurrence and cruelty of episodes of mass killing and the levels of development
and democracy across countries and over time using a newly assembled dataset spanning from
1820 to 1998. The study finds that massacres are more likely at intermediate levels of
income and less likely at very high levels of democracy. The study does not find evidence
of a linear relationship between democracy and the probability of mass killings. In the
20th century, discrete improvements in democracy are systematically associated with less
cruel massacre episodes. Episodes at the highest levels of democracy and income involve
relatively fewer victims.

Offshore Drilling and Energy Conservation:

The Relative Impact on Gas Prices

This issue brief compares projected savings from drilling in presently restricted offshore
zones and savings if the nation had continued adjusting fuel efficiency standards at
1980-1985 rates. The issue brief projects savings through 2027, the year in which offshore
drilling would reach peak capacity.

Iran's Political, Demographic, and Economic Vulnerabilities

Iran is one of the United States' most important foreign policy concerns. It has also been
an extraordinarily difficult country with which to engage. Ironically, while the
leadership has been hostile to the United States, Iranian society has evolved in ways
friendly to the United States and U.S. interests. This monograph assesses current
political, ethnic, demographic, and economic trends and vulnerabilities in Iran. For
example, the numbers of young people entering the Iranian labor force are at an all-time
high. The authors then provide recommendations for U.S. policies that might foster trends
beneficial to U.S. interests. For example, greater use of markets and a more-vibrant
private sector would contribute to the development of sources of political power
independent from the current regime. The authors finally note a need for patience. Even
if favorable trends take root, it will take time for them to come to fruition.

Changing Images of Man

Stanford Research Institute (now SRI International) released a report in 1974 that has
become a classic in the "alternative futures" literature. It has been adopted as a text
in non-traditional courses at more than a dozen universities and reprinted repeatedly by
SRI. Changing Images of Man explores the reasons why changes may have to take place in
the fundamental conceptual premises, laws, attitudes and ethics once suitable for guiding
the development of the United States and other highly industrialized nations if a humane
(and "workable") future is to be achievable. It discusses the evidence that such changes
may be occurring and the possibility that an evolutionary transformation may be underway
that is at least as profound as the transition in Europe when the Medieval Age gave way
to the rise of science and the Industrial Revolution.

The Crisis Of Democracy

Report On The Governability Of Democracies To The Trilateral Commission

The Increase in Social Interaction

In every developed country man has become much more of a social animal than before. There
has been an explosion of human interaction and correlatively a tremendous increase in
social pressure. The social texture of human life has become -- and is becoming -- more
and more complex, and it's management more difficult. Dispersion, fragmentation and simple
ranking have been replaced by concentration, interdependence, and a complex texture.
Organized systems have become tremendously more complex, and they tend to prevail, in a
much more composite and complex social system, over the more simple forms of yesterday.
Because of the basic importance of the comtemporary complex social texture, it's management
has a crucial importance which raises the problem of social control of the individual.

The Democractic Challenge to Authority

The essence of the democratic surge of the 1960s was a general challenge to the existing
systems of authority, public and private. In one form or another, this challenge manifested
itself in the family, the university, business, public and private associations, politics,
the government bureaucracy, and the military services. People no longer felt the compulsion
to obey those whom they had previously considered superior to themselves in age, rank,
status, expertise, character and talents. Within most organizations, discipline eased and
differences in status became blurred. Each group its right to participate equally -- and
perhaps more than equally -- in the decisions which affected itself.

A Question of Vision

What is in short supply in Democratic societies today is not consensus on the rules of
the game, but a sense of purpose as to what one should achieve by playing the game. In
the past, people found their purposes in religion, in nationalism, and in ideology. But
neither church, nor state, nor class now commands people's loyalties. In some measure,
Democracy itself was inspired by manifestations of each of these forces and commitments.

Protestantism sanctified the individual conscience; nationalism postulated the equality
of citizens; and liberalism provided the rationale for a limited government based on
consent. But now all three gods have failed. We have witnessed the dissipation of religion,
the withering away of nationalism, and the decline -- if not the end -- of class-based
ideology.

The Dangers of Freedom
The democratic spirit is egalitarian, individualistic, populist and impatient with
distinctions of class and rank. The spread of that spirit weaks the traditional threats
to democracy posed by such groups as the aristocracy, the church and the military. At the
same time, the pervasive spirit of democracy may pose an intrinsic threat and undermine
all forms of association, weakening the social bonds which hold together family,
enterprise, and community. Every social organization requires, in some measure,
inequalities in authority and distinctions in function. To the extent that the spread of
democratic temper corrodes all these, exercising a leveling and homogenizing influence,
it destroys the bases of trust and cooperation among citizens, and creates obstacles to
collaboration of any common purpose.

Dropping the Ax: Illegal Firings During Union Election Campaigns

This report finds a steep rise in illegal firings of pro-union workers in the 2000s relative
to the last half of the 1990s. It uses published data from the National Labor Relations
Board (NLRB) to update an index of the probability that a pro-union worker will be fired
in the course of a union election campaign.

By 2005, pro-union workers involved in union election campaigns faced about a 1.8 percent
chance of being illegally fired during the course of the campaign. If we assume that
employers target union organizers and activists, and that union organizers and activists
make up about 10 percent of pro-union workers, our estimates suggest that almost
one-in-five union organizers or activists can expect to be fired as a result of their
activities in a union election campaign.

NIST NCSTAR 1A, Final Report on the Collapse of World Trade Center Building 7

The fall of the 47-story World Trade Center building 7 (WTC 7) in New York City late in
the afternoon of Sept. 11, 2001, was primarily due to fires, the Commerce Department’s
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced today following an
extensive, three-year scientific and technical building and fire safety investigation.
This was the first known instance of fire causing the total collapse of a tall building,
the agency stated as it released for public comment its WTC investigation report and 13
recommendations for improving building and fire safety.

“Our study found that the fires in WTC 7, which were uncontrolled but otherwise similar
to fires experienced in other tall buildings, caused an extraordinary event,” said NIST
WTC Lead Investigator Shyam Sunder. “Heating of floor beams and girders caused a critical
support column to fail, initiating a fire-induced progressive collapse that brought the
building down.”

“Video and photographic evidence combined with detailed computer simulations show that
neither explosives nor fuel oil fires played a role in the collapse of WTC 7,” Sunder said.
The NIST investigation team also determined that other elements of the building’s
construction—namely trusses, girders and cantilever overhangs that were used to transfer
loads from the building superstructure to the columns of the electric substation (over
which WTC 7 was constructed) and foundation below—did not play a significant role in the
collapse.

According to the report, a key factor leading to the eventual collapse of WTC 7 was thermal
expansion of long-span floor systems at temperatures “hundreds of degrees below those
typically considered in current practice for fire resistance ratings." WTC 7 used a
structural system design in widespread use.

The DCDC Global Strategic Trends Programme 2007-2036

A U.K. Ministry of Defence team produced this report that envisions Britiain's strategic
context up to 2036. It deals with shifting economic relationships between countries,
changes in information in an electronic world, new weaponry and space militarization,
resource and socioeconomic tensions, climate change, and terrorism.

[I]"The Middle Class Proletariat - The middle classes could become a revolutionary class,
taking the role envisaged for the proletariat by Marx. The globalization of labour markets
and reducing levels of national welfare provision and employment could reduce peoples’
attachment to particular states. The growing gap between themselves and a small number
of highly visible super-rich individuals might fuel disillusion with meritocracy, while
the growing urban under-classes are likely to pose an increasing threat to social order
and stability, as the burden of acquired debt and the failure of pension provision begins
to bite. Faced by these twin challenges, the world’s middle-classes might unite, using
access to knowledge, resources and skills to shape transnational processes in their own
class interest." [/I]

Strategic Trends is an independent view of the future produced by the Development, Concepts
and Doctrine Centre (DCDC), a Directorate General within the UK’s Ministry of Defence (MOD).
It is a source document for the development of UK Defence Policy.

What Has Government Done To Our Money (e-Book)

The Mises Institute is pleased to present this very beautiful hardbound edition of
Rothbard's most famous monetary essay--the one that has influenced two generations of
economists, investors, and business professionals.

The Mises Institute has united this book with its natural complement: a detailed reform
proposal for a 100 percent gold dollar. "The Case for a 100 Percent Gold Dollar" was written
a decade before the last vestiges of the gold standard were abolished. His unique plan
for making the dollar sound again still holds up. Some people have said: Rothbard tells
us what is wrong with money but not what to do about it. Well, by adding this essay, the
problem and the answer are united in a comprehensive whole.

After presenting the basics of money and banking theory, he traces the decline of the dollar
from the 18th century to the present, and provides lucid critiques of central banking,
New Deal monetary policy, Nixonian fiat money, and fixed exchange rates. He also provides
a blueprint for a return to a 100 percent reserve gold standard.

The book made huge theoretical advances. He was the first to prove that the government,
and only the government, can destroy money on a mass scale, and he showed exactly how they
go about this dirty deed. But just as importantly, it is beautifully written. He tells
a thrilling story because he loves the subject so much.

The passion that Murray feels for the topic comes through in the prose and transfers to
the reader. Readers become excited about the subject, and tell others. Students tell
professors. Some, like the great Ron Paul of Texas, have even run for political office
after having read it.

Rothbard shows precisely how banks create money out of thin air and how the central bank,
backed by government power, allows them to get away with it. He shows how exchange rates
and interest rates would work in a true free market. When it comes to describing the end
of the gold standard, he is not content to describe the big trends. He names names and
ferrets out all the interest groups involved.

Since Rothbard's death, scholars have worked to assess his legacy, and many of them agree
that this little book is one of his most important. Though it has sometimes been
inauspiciously packaged and is surprisingly short, its argument took huge strides toward
explaining that it is impossible to understand public affairs in our time without
understanding money and its destruction.

The Causes of the Economic Crisis (e-Book)

In the world before and after the Great Depression, there was a lone voice for sanity and
freedom: Ludwig von Mises. He speaks in The Causes of the Economic Crisis, a collection
of newly in print essays by Mises that have been very hard to come by, and are published
for the first time in this format.

Here we have the evidence that the master economist foresaw and warned against the breakdown
of the German mark, as well as the market crash of 1929 and the depression that followed.

He presents his business cycle theory in its most elaborate form, applies it to the
prevailing conditions, and discusses the policies that governments undertake that make
recessions worse. He recommends a path for monetary reform that would eliminate business
cycles and provide the basis for a sustainable prosperity.
In foreseeing the interwar economic breakdown, Mises was nearly alone among his
contemporaries. In 1923, he warned that central banks will not "stabilize" money; they
will distort credit markets and generate booms and busts. In 1928, he departed dramatically
from the judgment of his contemporaries and sounded an alarm: "every boom must one day
come to an end."

Then after the Great Depression hit, he wrote again in 1931. His essay was called: "The
Causes of the Economic Crisis." And the essays kept coming, in 1933 and 1946, each
explaining that the business cycle results from central-bank generated loose money and
cheap credit, and that the cycle can only be made worse by intervention.

Did the world listen? The German-speaking world knew his essays well, and he was considered
a prophet, until the Nazis came to power and wiped out his legacy. In England, his student
F.A. Hayek made the Austrian theory a presence in academic life.

In the popular mind, the media, and politics, however, it was Keynes who held sway, with
his claim that the depression was the fault of the market, and that it can only be solved
through government planning.

Just at the time he wanted to be fighting, Mises had to leave Austria, forced out by
political events and the rising of the Nazis. He wrote from Geneva, his writings accessible
to too few people. They were never translated into English until after his death. Even
then, they were not circulated widely.

The sad result is that Mises is not given the credit he deserves for having warned about
the coming depression, and having seen the solution. His writings were prolific and
profound, but they were swallowed up in the rise of the total state and total war.

But today, we hear him speak again in this book.

Bettina B. Greaves did the translations. It is her view that in that in the essays, Mises
provides the clearest explanation of the Great Depression ever written. Indeed, he is
crystal clear: precise, patient, and thorough. It makes for a gripping read, especially
given that we face many of the same problems today.

This book refutes the socialists and Keynesian, as well as anyone who believes that the
printing press can provide a way out of trouble. Mises shows who was responsible for driving
the world into economic calamity. It was the inevitable effects of the government's
monopoly over money and banking.

Just as in his attack on socialism, here he was brilliant and brave and prescient. Mises
was there, before and after. He was writing about contemporary events. He issued the
warnings that the world did not heed, the warnings we must heed today.

History of Money and Banking in the United States: The Colonial Era To World War II (e-Book)

The master teacher of American economic history covers money and banking! In a complete
revision of the standard account, Rothbard traces inflations, banking panics, and money
meltdowns from the Colonial Period through the mid-20th century to show how government's
systematic war on sound money is the hidden force behind nearly all major economic
calamities in American history. Never has the story of money and banking been told with
such rhetorical power and theoretical vigor.

Here is how this book came to be. Rothbard died in 1995, leaving many people to wish that
he had written a historical treatise on this topic. But the the archives assisted: Rothbard
had in fact left several large manuscripts dedicated to American banking history.

In the course of his career, meanwhile, he had published other pieces along the same lines,
but they appeared in venues not readily accessible. Given the desperate need for a single
volume that covers the topic, the Mises Institute put together this thrilling book. So
seemless is the style and argument, and comprehensive is coverage, that it might as well
have been written in exactly the format.

The end result is Rothbard's (and the Austrian School's) answer to Friedman and Schwartz.

Money, Bank Credit, and Economic Cycles (e-Book)

Can the market fully manage the money and banking sector?

Jesús Huerta de Soto, professor of economics at the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Madrid,
has made history with this mammoth and exciting treatise that it has and can again, without
inflation, without business cycles, and without the economic instability that has
characterized the age of government control.

Such a book as this comes along only once every several generations: a complete
comprehensive treatise on economic theory. It is sweeping, revolutionary, and
devastating--not only the most extended elucidation of Austrian business cycle theory to
ever appear in print but also a decisive vindication of the Misesian-Rothbardian
perspective on money, banking, and the law.

Jörg Guido Hülsmann has said that this is the most significant work on money and banking
to appear since 1912, when Mises's own book was published and changed the way all economists
thought about the subject.

Fiat Money Inflation in France (e-Book)

Here is the untold and still largely unknown story of a major factor behind the French
Revolution. As John Mackay writes in the introduction:

"It records the most gigantic attempt ever made in the history of the world by a government
to create an inconvertible paper currency, and to maintain its circulation at various
levels of value. It also records what is perhaps the greatest of all governmental
efforts--with the possible exception of Diocletian's--to enact and enforce a legal limit
of commodity prices.

"Every fetter that could hinder the will or thwart the wisdom of democracy had been
shattered, and in consequence every device and expedient that untrammelled power and
unrepressed optimism could conceive were brought to bear. But the attempts failed. They
left behind them a legacy of moral and material desolation and woe, from which one of the
most intellectual and spirited races of Europe has suffered for a century and a quarter,
and will continue to suffer until the end of time. There are limitations to the powers
of governments and of peoples that inhere in the constitution of things, and that neither
despotisms nor democracies can overcome."

What's remarkable is how conventional histories of the period treat this huge economic
reality as a mere footnote, and that's mostly because historians are not usually alert
to the cause and effect relationships in economics. But this book is different. Author
Andrew Dickson White puts the monetary story right at the center of action, and compellingly
shows how it leads to a national catastrophe.

As the the author writes, inflation "brought, as we have seen, commerce and manufactures,
the mercantile interest, the agricultural interest, to ruin. It brought on these the same
destruction which would come to a Hollander opening the dykes of the sea to irrigate his
garden in a dry summer. It ended in the complete financial, moral and political prostration
of France-a prostration from which only a Napoleon could raise it."

This study was first written in 1896, and it has not been surpassed, and nor has its
historigraphical power been diminished.

Crisis and Cycles (e-Book)

It's hard to say what is the most rare, most hard to find, most buried important book,
in the history of the Austrian School. But this splendid and critically important treatise
would certainly be among the nominees.

Until this edition, this book has been darn-near impossible to obtain short of stealing
from the Library of Congress. As a matter of fact, it has been mysteriously missing off
the shelves there for years, so the only copies extant have been photocopies of photocopies
50 times over.

So at last: we can present to you Crises and Cycles by one of the greats.

During the thick of the Great Depression, the same year as John Maynard Keynes came out
with his treatise, Wilhelm Röpke made this contribution to macroeconomics: an excellent
exposition of the Austrian Cycle theory in the tradition of Mises and Hayek.

He refutes Keynes before Keynes became popular, and also provides an argument against other
prevailing theories. Röpke is not perfect: while his analysis is excellent, he recommends
a reflation after deflation. Nonetheless, this is an important and much-sought-after
treatise by an important member of the Austrian School.

Spiritual Mapping: The Turbulent Career of a Contested American Missionary Paradigm, 1989
- 2005

Spiritual Mapping was an international Evangelical and Neo-Pentecostal movement which
specialized in the use of religious techniques to wage a territorial spiritual war against
unseen non-human beings. These techniques were considered to be of divine origin and their
intended function was primarily missionary. This study describes the history of Spiritual
Mapping as a movement and as a concept, which overlapped for some time. As a movement,
Spiritual Mapping developed at the end of te 1980s and in the first half of the 1990s in
the United States. It developed activities in the form of conferences, seminars,
publications, missionary activities, interactive websites and other activities. The
movement originated within US Evangelicalism and developed into a part of
Neo-Pentecostalism. After its decline as an independent movement its techniques were
absorbed by other new religious movements. As a concept, Spiritual Mapping originated -
somewhat earlier than the movement - in US Evangelicalism in the second half of the 1980s.
The Evangelical missionary urge to win the world led to the integration of theological
and sociological models to enhance the effectiveness of missionary work. However, in the
view of adherents of Spiritual Mapping, sociological models dealt only with the 'natural'
side of reality and thus adherents developed a 'map' for the 'supernatural' dimension.
Reality is believed to have both a natural and a supernatural dimension, which closely
interact. Missionary work without the awareness of the supernatural dimension was
considered a blind folded act. Knowledge of the supernatural was considered to be
indispensable for missionary work. The natural was viewed as being under the dominion of
non-human evil beings under the leadership of Satan and as opposing divine purposes. This
dominion was organized territorially and someties according to social groupings. These
beings, the 'territorial spirits', acted in the framework of a hierarchy with different
functions and responsibilities. They were put on a 'spiritual' map. Knowledge about these
beings concerned their names and their functions per territory. Models and techniques were
developed in order to acquire this information. In the end the information was used to
end the dominion over the given territory. Adherents expected social, political and
economic transformation. It would result into the speedy dissemination of the Christian
faith. A first model was tested in 1989 in Argentina. This study investigates in an
historical-descriptive way both the history of the modern concept and the movement. It
indicates aspects of the theological and cultural contexts in which Spiritual Mapping was
born and in which it developed. Both the movement as the concept are found to be expressions
of Americanism and its socio-political concept of Manifest Destiny. It is found to be an
expression of popular American folk religion and a product of the American competitive
market as well.

Know Your Rights When Encountering Law Enforcement

If government agents question you, it is important to understand your rights. You should
be careful about what you say when approached by law enforcement officials. If you give
answers, they can be used against you in a criminal, immigration, or civil case.

The ACLU's Know Your Rights booklet provides effective and useful guidance in a
user-friendly question and answer format. The booklet addresses what rights you have when
you are stopped, questioned, arrested, or searched by law enforcement officers. This
booklet is for citizens and non-citizens with extra information for non-citizens in a
separate section. Another section covers what can happen to you at airports and other points
of entry into the United States. The last section discusses concerns you may have related
to your charitable contributions and religious or political beliefs. The booklet tells
you about your basic rights. It is not a substitute for legal advice. You should contact
an attorney if you have been arrested or believe that your rights have been violated.

Military Expenditure: Threats, Aid, and Arms Races
Using global data for the period 1960-99, Collier and Hoeffler estimate neighborhood arms
races. They find that the level of military expenditure is strongly influenced by the
expenditure of neighbors. The authors estimate an "arms race multiplier," finding that
an initial exogenous increase in military expenditure by one country is more than doubled
in both the originating country and its neighbor. An implication is that military
expenditure is, to an extent, a "regional public bad."

Potentially, there is an offsetting public good effect if rebellions are deterred by
military expenditure. However, instrumenting for military expenditure, the authors find
no deterrence effect of military spending on the risk of internal conflict. So there appears
to be no regional public good effect offsetting the public bad arising from a neighborhood
arms race.

This paper - a product of the Development Research Group - is part of a larger effort in
the group to study the economics of conflict.

Cities and the 'War on Terror'

Programmes of organized, political violence have always been legitimized and sustained

through complex imaginative geographies. These tend to be characterized by stark

binaries of place attachment. This article argues that the discursive construction of the

Bush administration’s ‘war on terror’ since September 11th 2001 has been deeply

marked by attempts to rework imaginative geographies separating the urban places of
the US ‘homeland’ and those Arab cities purported to be the sources of ‘terrorist’ threats

against US national interests. On the one hand, imaginative geographies of US cities

have been reworked to construct them as ‘homeland’ spaces which must be reengineered

to address supposed imperatives of ‘national security’. On the other, Arab

cities have been imaginatively constructed as little more than ‘terrorist nest’ targets
to

soak up US military firepower. Meanwhile, the article shows how both ‘homeland’

and ‘target’ cities are increasingly being treated together as a single, integrated

‘battlespace’ within post 9/11 US military doctrine and techno-science. The article

concludes with a discussion of the central roles of urban imaginative geographies,

overlaid by transnational architectures of US military technology, in sustaining the

colonial territorial configurations of a hyper-militarized US Empire.

Blood at the Crossroads: Making the case for a global Arms Trade Treaty

The world is reaching a crossroads in deciding how to control the arms trade. Governments
must act now to create effective and robust regulation. This report shows through
illustrative cases how that trade contributes to serious violations of human rights in
different parts of the world. In particular, it seeks to help demonstrate why the
establishment of a global Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) is an urgent necessity and how an ATT
could work to save lives, preserve livelihoods and enhance respect for human rights.

Files document the FBI's treatment of a wide variety of "alive" sightings of Hitler after
the war. The bureau maintained files relating to sightings in Argentina. Contains FBI lab
reports on authenticating Hitler's marriage certificate, will, and other political
documents. Files contains reporting of information given to the bureau of an alleged plot
by a group of Jewish Americans in New York to assassinate Hitler in 1933. In 1933 information
by a citizen was given to the German embassy in Washington, of the alleged plan. The German
embassy informed the FBI of the information it received. A memorandum written by J. Edgar
Hoover in 1941 tells of information from a confidential source about a new succession plan
Hitler made in case of his death.

A People’s History of the United States, 1492-Present (e-Book)

According to this classic of revisionist American history, narratives of national unity
and progress are a smoke screen disguising the ceaseless conflict between elites and the
masses whom they oppress and exploit. Historian Zinn sides with the latter group in
chronicling Indians' struggle against Europeans, blacks' struggle against racism, women's
struggle against patriarchy, and workers' struggle against capitalists. First published
in 1980, the volume sums up decades of post-war scholarship into a definitive statement
of leftist, multicultural, anti-imperialist historiography. This edition updates that
project with new chapters on the Clinton and Bush presidencies, which deplore Clinton's
pro-business agenda, celebrate the 1999 Seattle anti-globalization protests and apologize
for previous editions' slighting of the struggles of Latinos and gays. Zinn's work is an
vital corrective to triumphalist accounts, but his uncompromising radicalism shades, at
times, into cynicism. Zinn views the Bill of Rights, universal suffrage, affirmative action
and collective bargaining not as fundamental (albeit imperfect) extensions of freedom,
but as tactical concessions by monied elites to defuse and contain more revolutionary
impulses; voting, in fact, is but the most insidious of the "controls." It's too bad that
Zinn dismisses two centuries of talk about "patriotism, democracy, national interest" as
mere "slogans" and "pretense," because the history he recounts is in large part the effort
of downtrodden people to claim these ideals for their own.

You Are Being Lied To

The Disinformation Guide to Media Distortion, Historical Whitewashes and Cultural Myths
(e-Book)

Topics ranging from Columbus to Columbine, this collection of stimulating articles
Disinformation Books' inaugural title challenges popular beliefs on the Big Bang and the
depredations of hackers. Kick, author of Psychotropedia and a columnist for the Village
Voice, has collected an impressive array of articles by such contributors as Sydney
Schanberg of the New York Times, in which he asks why John McCain persistently blocks public
disclosure of MIA files, and the lesser-known Jim Marrs, a Kennedy conspiracy zealot and
freelance journalist who discusses missing data from historical tragedies, including the
Lincoln and Kennedy assassinations and the Lockerbie bombing. Do gay teens really
constitute a suicidal risk group? Was Jesus a myth? The best articles will surely compel
readers to pursue further reading; none should be accepted as exhaustive. Public libraries
ought to invest in a copy to keep alongside other sources of skepticism; academic libraries
will find the scholarship uneven but provocative.

Hegemony or survival: America's quest for global dominance

(The American Empire Project) (e-Book)

Noam Chomsky is considered the father of modern linguistics. In this richly detailed
criticism of American foreign policy, he seeks to redefine many of the terms commonly used
in the ongoing American war on terrorism. Surveying U.S. actions in Cuba, Nicaragua,
Turkey, the Far East and elsewhere over the past half a century along with the modern
American war in Iraq, Chomsky indicates that America is just as much a terrorist state
as any other government or rogue organization. George W. Bush's 2003 invasion of Iraq drew
worldwide criticism, in part because it seemed to present a new philosophy of pre-emptive
war and an appearance of global empire building. But according to Chomsky, such has been
the operating philosophy of American foreign policy for decades. Opponents of the Bush
administration's tactics consistently point out how the American government supported
Saddam Hussein for many years prior to the 1990 invasion of Kuwait (pictures of Donald
Rumsfeld shaking Saddam's hand are easy to come by) as a means of pointing out how the
United States is happy to fund despots when it's in American interests. But Chomsky, armed
with extensive historical notation, takes this notion further, arguing how the repression
of other nations' citizenry is, in fact, the very reason Americans support certain foreign
leaders. The charges made throughout the book are severe, as are the dire consequences
he posits if current trends are not reversed, and Chomsky is no more likely to make friends
or gain supporters from the mainstream now than he's ever been. But Hegemony or Survival
is relatively dispassionate. Instead of relying on camp or shock value or personal attacks
as some of his contemporaries have done, Chomsky drives his well-supported points steadily
forward in an earnest and highly readable style.

Web Of Debt

The Shocking Truth About Our Money System And How We Can Break Free (e-Book)

Third Edition, Revised and Expanded With 2008 Update

Exploding The Myths About Money

Our money system is not what we have been led to believe. The creation of money has been
"privatized," or taken over by a private money cartel. Except for coins, all of our money
is now created as loans advanced by private banking institutions -- including the private
Federal Reserve. Banks create the principal but not the interest to service their loans.
To find the interest, new loans must continually be taken out, expanding the money supply,
inflating prices -- and robbing you of the value of your money. Web of Debt unravels the
deception and presents a crystal clear picture of the financial abyss towards which we
are heading. Then it explores a workable alternative, one that was tested in colonial
America and is grounded in the best of American economic thought, including the writings
of Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln. If you care about financial
security, your own or the nation's, you should read this book.

The Harper Record (e-Book)

The Harper Record documents in exhaustive detail the Conservative government’s performance
over the last two-and-a-half years.

"Contrary to the general perception that this has been a moderate government, this book
reveals that it, in fact, has taken significant steps to transform Canada in a very short
time. Harper's very conservative vision has been advanced across a broad range of policies.
It is a deeply troubling prelude of things to come."

The analysts find the Harper record falls woefully short when measured against the great
challenges of our time: climate change, inequality and poverty, peace and stability,
educating our children, protecting our health, and managing the economy.

This book gives a detailed account of the laws, policies, regulations, and initiatives
of the Conservative minority government under Prime Minister Stephen Harper during its
32-month term from January 2006 to September 2008.

The 47 writers, researchers and analysts who have co-written this book probe into every
aspect of the Harper minority government's administration. From the economy to the
environment, from social programs to foreign policy, from health care to tax cuts, from
the Afghanistan mission to the tar sands, from free trade to deep integration, and to many
other areas of this government's record, the authors have dug out the facts and analyzed
them.

The Harper Record was necessarily researched and written long before an election was
called, but its publication does coincide with an election campaign and thus may help
citizens to make informed choices about the future of their country. Regardless of the
election outcome, its contents will continue to be relevant between elections. In detailing
what a minority Conservative government really did, or failed to do, it may serve as a
guide and model for future elections.

Oversight Unseen

Investigation into the Special Investigations Unit’s

operational effectiveness and credibility

'Timid' police watchdog needs teeth: Ontario ombudsman

Police oversight "has hit rock bottom in Ontario" because of a watchdog agency that is
timid, fearful and lacking in rigour, Ontario's ombudsman said Tuesday as he introduced
a report on Ontario's Special Investigations Unit.

"It is clear that something must be done to dispel the SIU’s image as a toothless tiger
and muzzled watchdog if it is to earn the respect of police officials as well as the public
at large,” André Marin says in a report titled "Oversight Unseen."

The agency has been investigating cases of serious injury or death involving police for
the past 18 years.

But serious concerns about its credibility and effectiveness have been raised with the
ombudsman's office by members of the community over the past two years, said Marin, who
once headed the agency.

In his report, he criticized the SIU for:

--Turning "a blind eye" when police don't notify it or respond to interview requests as
quickly as the law requires, resulting sometimes in delays of "days or weeks."

--Being reluctant to insist on police co-operation with investigations.

--Having a culture that is influenced by too many former police officers among its staff.

--The SIU has "bought into the fallacious argument that SIU investigations aren’t like
other criminal cases, and that it is acceptable to treat police witnesses differently from
civilians," the report said.
The agency does not keep records of police non-co-operation, the report said.

In addition, it "is practically pathological in its avoidance of public controversy and
consistently opts for the path of least resistance."

Marin blamed the problems on a lack of infrastructure and authority, along with the fact
that it has "become so timid and fearful in its watchdog role."

He also noted that at times the SIU raised some of its issues with the Ministry of the
Attorney General, which did not resolve the problems. One example was a case raised by
former SIU director James Cornish in 2006 in which Ottawa Emergency Medical Services "had
flatly refused to speak to the SIU." Cornish said he found this troubling, but despite
discussions with the ministry, "no further steps were taken and the problem has persisted."

The report makes 45 recommendations, including a call for the government to enact
legislation to make it an offence for police forces not to co-operate with the SIU.

In addition, it recommends that the SIU:

--Aggressively work to determine why police aren't co-operating.

--Diversify its workforce using "whatever means are available."

--Make its reports completely public.

Ontario to boost funding by $700,000

The SIU and the Ministry of the Attorney General co-operated fully with Marin's
investigation and welcome the recommendations, said a news release from Marin's office.

A news release from the ministry states that it will take steps in response to the report,
including to:

--Provide an additional $700,000 — a 12 per cent increase — to fund eight new SIU staff,
including civilian investigators and community outreach staff

--Provide one-time funding for a mobile investigative centre that will allow SIU
investigators to establish an independent presence at the scene of major incidents, and
conduct instant, thorough, secure and videotaped interviews with witnesses

--Provide for the appointment of SIU directors to a five-year term

--Clarify the accountability and independence of the SIU director in a new memorandum of
understanding between the ministry and the SIU to ensure the organization is accountable
to the taxpayer but has total independence in decision-making
The investigation is the seventh review of the SIU and the largest investigation by Marin's
special ombudsman response team. Launched in June 2007, it involved more than 100
interviews and the review of tens of thousands of pages of documents by six investigators.

Animal Farm

A novel of satire by George Orwell. Animals take over a farm to escape human tyranny, but
the pigs treat the other animals worse than the people did. A famous quotation from the

Cities and the 'War on Terror'

Programmes of organized, political violence have always been legitimized and sustained

through complex imaginative geographies. These tend to be characterized by stark

binaries of place attachment. This article argues that the discursive construction of the

Bush administration’s ‘war on terror’ since September 11th 2001 has been deeply

marked by attempts to rework imaginative geographies separating the urban places of

the US ‘homeland’ and those Arab cities purported to be the sources of ‘terrorist’ threats

against US national interests. On the one hand, imaginative geographies of US cities

have been reworked to construct them as ‘homeland’ spaces which must be reengineered

to address supposed imperatives of ‘national security’. On the other, Arab

cities have been imaginatively constructed as little more than ‘terrorist nest’ targets
to

soak up US military firepower. Meanwhile, the article shows how both ‘homeland’

and ‘target’ cities are increasingly being treated together as a single, integrated
‘battlespace’ within post 9/11 US military doctrine and techno-science. The article

concludes with a discussion of the central roles of urban imaginative geographies,

overlaid by transnational architectures of US military technology, in sustaining the

colonial territorial configurations of a hyper-militarized US Empire.

The Human Right to Food in Haiti: Report of an International Fact-finding Mission

In a world that produces more than enough food to feed itself, more than 850 million people
suffer from hunger and malnutrition every day. Three quarters of them are children. It
is clear that both national and international policies have failed to deliver the
conditions necessary to manage food production and distribution in a fair and equitable
manner. This report documents the experience of an international team of human rights
advocates who joined forces with their Haitian counterparts and visited communities across
the country to talk about the challenges faced in accessing sufficient, nutritious and
safe food. The report compiles its findings under the three levels of state obligation
– respect, protect and fulfil – and it makes a series of recommendations to the Government
of Haiti, the international community and civil society.

The report will be of interest to human rights practitioners, social justice activists
and development agencies who have adopted or who are considering the adoption of a human
rights framework for poverty alleviation programming.

Status Of Forces Agreement

An agreement regarding the temporary U.S. presence in Iraq and its activities and
withdrawal from Iraq, between the United States and the Iraqi government

Read the first public English translation of the latest draft agreement between the U.S
and Iraqi administrations, an agreement designed to permit U.S. troops to remain in Iraq
once the United Nations mandate ends this year and may begin the process of establishing
permanent U.S. military bases in Iraq.
"This agreement could further entrench the U.S. military in Iraq," says Raed Jarrar, the
AFSC Iraq consultant who translated the agreement, based on a leaked Arabic version. "It
cannot be negotiated behind closed doors. The public, Congress, and the Iraqi Parliament
should be informed and weigh in before we set a direction for the future."

The AFSC has also sponsored visits to the U.S. Capitol by Iraqi Parliamentarians so the
two legislative bodies could exchange views about the future of their countries and U.S.
forces in Iraq. Many Parliamentarians and Members of Congress have stated their
opposition to an agreement that keeps U.S. forces in Iraq.

At the end of 2008, the current annual U.N. mandate allowing the United States military
presence in Iraq expires. Instead of seeking another, the administration has been
negotiating a long-term bilateral 'status of forces' agreement with the Iraqi executive
branch. The agreement will provide the legal basis for a U.S. troop presence in Iraq. The
document seeks to answer critical questions of sovereignty and authority, concepts best
respected when the international community is able to provide oversight. This is the latest
version that has been made public.

Members of the U.S. and Iraq executive branches have worked to define what will happen
with the U.S. troops, but neither government have commented on the agreement's details
to the public.

In addition to legislators' opposition, a large part of the Iraqi public have voiced
opposition to signing this agreement. Three days ago, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis
demonstrated in the streets of Baghdad, asking for a complete withdrawal of U.S. troops
and opposing any long term agreements with the United States.

Facts and Myths about the Financial Crisis of 2008
The United States is indisputably undergoing a financial crisis. Here we examine four
claims about the way the financial crisis is affecting the economy as a whole and argue
that all four claims are myths. Conventional analyses of the financial crisis focus on
interest rate spreads. We argue that such analyses may lead to mistaken inferences about
the real costs of borrowing and argue that, during financial crises, variations in the
levels of nominal interest rates might lead to better inferences about variations in the
real costs of borrowing.

Latin American’s 'New Left' In Crises
As the 'Free Market' Collapses

Latin America is entering a period of profound economic recession, financial crises,
collapsing stock market quotations, prices, deep devaluation of its currencies, growing
unemployment, declining revenues and the prospect of a prolonged socio-economic recession.

The economic breakdown, which is still unfolding, affects the entire political spectrum,
extending from the far-right Uribe regime in Colombia to the social-liberal Chilean and
Brazilian governments of Bachelet and Lula da Silva to the ‘center-left’ regimes of Evo
Morales in Bolivia and Rafael Correa in Ecuador and even to the leftist government of Hugo
Chavez.

It is not surprising to see that rightist regimes, embracing neo-liberal doctrines and
deeply enmeshed in free trade agreements with the US, following its path to economic
collapse. The deepening crisis has affected, with equal or greater force, the so-called
‘center-left’ regimes of Brazil, Ecuador, Argentina, Bolivia and Nicaragua.

The Book Of Peace: A Collection Of Essays On War And Peace (e-Book)

This is a collection of sixty-four essays by a variety

of authors and from a wide range of viewpoints on the subjects of war and peace.

According to the preface, “There has been, since the time of the gifted Erasmus, a

great deal of eloquent writing on Peace; and the following pages contain the best

productions on the subject not only of past ages, but of our own.” Although

written over 150 years ago, these essays on war and peace are extremely relevant

given world conditions today.

Rogue State: A Guide to the World's Only Superpower (e-Book)

Blum demonstrates how US policy, under the banners of freedom and human rights, has led
to barbarous criminal acts, how the world's force for peace has acted in the most belicose
form. An eye-opener for students of national security policy.

--Saul Landau, Fellow, Institute for Policy Studies, Washington, DC--

Bravo Blum! A vivid, well-aimed critique of the evils of US global interventionism, a superb
antidote to officialdom's lies and propaganda. -- Michael Parenti, author of History as
Mystery and To Kill a Nation: The Attack on Yugoslavia

Critics will call this a one-sided book. But it is an invaluable corrective to the
establishment portrait of America as the world's greatest force for peace. Even confirmed
opponents of U.S. interventionism can find much in this important book that will both
educate and shock them. -- Peter Dale Scott, former Professor at UC Berkeley, poet, and
author, Deep Politics and The Death of JFK

Rogue State forcibly reminds us of Vice President Agnews immortal line: The United States,
for all its faults, is still the greatest nation in the country. -- Gore Vidal, author
of The Decline and Fall of the American Empire

[..] He simply tested America by the same standards we use to judge other countries. The
result is a bill of wrongs an especially well-documented encyclopedia of malfeasance,
mendacity and mayhem that has been hypocritically carried out in the name of democracy
by those whose only true love was power.

--Sam Smith, Editor, The Progressive Review, Washington, DC--

Order Out Of Chaos

Elite Sponsored Terrorism and the New World Order (e-Book)

Order Out Of Chaos blows wide open the official story behind a multitude of both historical
and modern day events. Paul Joseph Watson uses mainstream media reports to exhaustively
document how governments are exploiting and even carrying out terrorist attacks to further
their unified political agenda. Every referenced article is available online so you can
cross-check the facts for yourself! In this shocking expose you will discover how;

-- Both the Clinton and Bush administrations protected Osama bin Laden and the Al-Qaeda
network before September 11;

-- The highest levels of the US government were complicit in the attacks on the World Trade
Center and the Pentagon;

-- Many of the named 9/11 'suicide hijackers' are still alive and the real culprits have
never been officially identified;

-- British MI5 have infiltrated the IRA and are carrying out terrorist attacks to maintain
a divided Ireland;

-- Chaos mongers are arming tyrants worldwide as a pretext for endless war and empire
building;

-- A despotic New World Order is being constructed, how it threatens us all and what we
can do to stop it.

Watson goes back in history to show how the same tactics used to centralize power and coerce
societies are still being used today. A high-tech prison grid police state is being erected
that will envelop everyone on planet earth in a spider web of brutal tyranny.

No longer is the New World Order a shadowy enemy lurking on the horizon, it is in our faces
and the proof is everywhere. The dark empire of world government is in the final stages
of its construction. This book is one of many keys you will need to unlock the door and
shine the burning light of freedom upon the twisted souls of the Globalists.

Old Myths Die Hard: The Transformation of the Mounted Police in Alberta and Saskatchewan,
1914-1939

The transformation of the world's most famous police force, the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police (RCMP). The force, formed in 1873, quickly gained mythic qualities. This mythic
view of the Mounted Police would survive into the 1970s. The impetus for change was the
First World War, at the end of which the force found its very existence threatened. A Mountie
unit had been dispatched to Europe to fight in the war. In order to gain enough strength
for such an undertaking, Mounted Policemen gave up their regular policing duties in Alberta
and Saskatchewan, the only provinces where they served in such a capacity. Suddenly,
Alberta and Saskatchewan discovered that they could survive without the scarlet-clad
policemen. During the war, the Mounted Police began extensive security intelligence
operations in Alberta and Saskatchewan as Mounties, among other security duties, dropped
the uniform and went undercover. By the end of the conflict, the Mounted Police controlled
security operations in western Canada. In 1920, the force absorbed its security rival,
the Dominion Police, and the RCMP came into being. In 1927, the force replaced the
Saskatchewan Provincial Police. In 1932, it similarly displaced the Alberta Provincial
Police. By the start of the Second World War, the RCMP's powerful post as Canada's national
police and security force was without challenge. The Mounties symbolized all that was
important and powerful in the Canada of the period. They were Anglo-Canadian males who
belonged to an organization with strong connections to the dominant British values of the
Canadian elite. Between 1914 and 1939, these men increasingly directed both their regular
policing operations and security activities against those who somehow represented a
challenge to the status quo in Canada. Non-Anglo-Canadian minorities in Alberta and
Saskatchewan, including those of Ukrainian and Chinese background, received a great deal
of overt and covert Mountie attention in the interwar period. The state linked east and
central Europeans to the tremendous disorder that erupted in Canada in the concluding
months of the war and in its immediate aftermath. Labour unrest was blamed on "foreigners."
In the 1920s, the appearance and activities of the RCMP's biggest foe, the Communist Party
of Canada, were also connected to non-Britishers. Throughout the period, the Mounties in
Alberta and Saskatchewan increasingly focused their resources upon those outside the
middle-class and ethnic mainstream: left-wing radicals who challenged the status quo,
ethnic groups who refused to assimilate to the Anglo-Canadian ideal, other minorities who
practiced activities deemed immoral by the Canadian majority, and workers of the employed
and unemployed variety who protested against economic inequality. In doing so, Mounted
Policemen made themselves indispensable to the Canadian state, ensuring the force's
survival and turning it into one of the world's most powerful police forces. In the 1970s,
the force, specifically its security service, found itself surrounded by controversy.
Scandals involving illegal activities by Mounties in Quebec in the war against separatism
continually occupied news headlines across the country. The federal government eventually
appointed a Royal Commission to investigate the breaking of laws by law enforcers. Based
on the McDonald Commission's recommendations, the Liberal government of Pierre Trudeau
stripped the force of its security/intelligence role, creating the Canadian Security
Intelligence Service as a replacement.

Americans Vote Yes for Equality Between Jews and Non-Jews Inside Israel

Election day in the United States, 2008, will be remembered in most history books as the
day

Americans elected the first African-American as president. But it also deserves to go down
in

history for another reason. It was the first day when Americans rejected the instructions
of their

pro-Israel politicians and newspapers and instead voted for the principle that non-Jews
should be

equal with Jews under the law inside Israel, and not discriminated against as they are
today in

apartheid Israel.

The Somerville Divestment Project (SDP) placed Question 4 on the ballot in two state

representative districts, one in Somerville and the other in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The

question asked, "Shall the state representative from this district be instructed to vote
in

favor of a non-binding resolution calling on the federal government to support the right
of
all people, including non-Jewish Palestinian citizens of Israel, to live free from laws
that

give more rights to people of one religion than another?" The "Yes" votes outnumbered the

"No" votes 9,100 to 5,542 in Somerville, and 9,637 to 3,650 in Cambridge. If Obama had
won by

this kind of a margin it would have been declared a Super-Landslide!

Global Trends 2025

A Transformed World

covers a range of strategic issues, including great-power rivalry, demographics, climate
change, terrorism, nuclear proliferation, energy and natural resources. It makes for
sometimes grim reading in imagining a world of weak states bristling with weapons of mass
destruction and unable to cope with burgeoning populations without adequate water and food.

'Western' economic liberalism, democracy and secularism will become less appealing.

US global influence will decline as developing powers like China and India join as world
leaders.

Greater access to technology will increase the possibility of nuclear conflict.

Some states in Africa and South Asia will disappear after failing to provide security for
their people.

Others in Eastern or Central Europe could be taken over by organised crime.

Global Catastrophes and Trends: The Next Fifty Years (e-Book)

Fundamental change occurs most often in one of two ways: as a "fatal discontinuity," a
sudden catastrophic event that is potentially world changing, or as a persistent, gradual
trend. Global catastrophes include volcanic eruptions, viral pandemics, wars, and
large-scale terrorist attacks; trends are demographic, environmental, economic, and
political shifts that unfold over time. In this provocative book, scientist Vaclav Smil
takes a wide-ranging, interdisciplinary look at the catastrophes and trends the next fifty
years may bring. This is not a book of forecasts or scenarios but one that reminds us to
pay attention to, and plan for, the consequences of apparently unpredictable events and
the ultimate direction of long-term trends.

Smil first looks at rare but cataclysmic events, both natural and human-produced, then
at trends of global importance: the transition from fossil fuels to other energy sources;
demographic and political shifts in Europe, Japan, Russia, China, the United States, and
Islamic nations; the battle for global primacy; and growing economic and social inequality.
He also considers environmental change—in some ways an amalgam of sudden discontinuities
and gradual change—and assesses the often misunderstood complexities of global warming.

Global Catastrophes and Trends does not come down on the side of either doom-and-gloom
scenarios or techno-euphoria. Instead, relying on long-term historical perspectives and
a distaste for the rigid compartmentalization of knowledge, Smil argues that understanding
change will help us reverse negative trends and minimize the risk of catastrophe.

Neturei Karta Of The Orthodox Jewry Of Palestine

Urgent Statement By Anti-Zionist Orthodox Jews Worldwide

How long will Jewish and non-Jewish leaders who claim the mantle of civilization and
morality remain silent in the face of the ongoing state terrorism practiced by the Zionist
state against the Palestinian People, most visibly today in Gaza, where the Zionists
believe they can starve the Palestinians into submission in violation of all tenets of
international law, all religious values in general, Including the values of the Jewish
faith???!!

Struggle For Kabul: The Taliban Advance

The Taliban now holds a permanent presence in 72% of Afghanistan, up from 54% a year ago.
Taliban forces have advanced from their southern heartlands, where they are now the de
facto governing power in a number of towns and villages, to Afghanistan’s western and
north-western provinces, as well as provinces north of Kabul. Within a year, the Taliban's
permanent presence in the country has increased by a startling 18%.

Three out of the four main highways into Kabul are now compromised by Taliban activity.
The capital city has plummeted to minimum levels of control, with the Taliban and other
criminal elements infiltrating the city at will.

Through its research platform in Afghanistan, ICOS determined the Taliban’s presence across
the country using a combination of publicly recorded attacks and local perceptions of
Taliban presence. One or more insurgent attacks per week in a province constitutes a
“permanent Taliban presence” according to ICOS.

Embedded: Weapons of Mass Deception : How the Media Failed to Cover the War on Iraq (e-Book)

In this impassioned indictment of the news media's coverage of the recent war in Iraq.
Among his beefs are the civilian casualties that were "rarely shown in the western media,"
the way the coverage "sold the war even as it claimed to be just reporting it," and the
media's poor-and in some cases absent-portrayal of the war protests, which he says were
"the largest global protests in history." Calling the President "Daddy Bush" and using
other colloquial terms, Schechter presents his thoughts in a diary-like form, dating his
thoughts as the war progresses and interjecting questions (for himself and for readers)
throughout. For skeptics and those unhappy with the way Americans learned of what was
happening in Iraq, this is an energetic but deeply discouraging study.

Body of Secrets: Anatomy of the Ultra-Secret National Security Agency (e-Book)

The National Security Agency (NSA), writes Bamford, has made the United States an
"eavesdropping superpower," capable of capturing, deciphering and analyzing "signal
intelligence"communicationsin whatever form it may exist and from whatever nation it may
be transmitted. Yet with a budget ($4 billion a year) and staff (numbering in the tens
of thousands) that dwarf its more famous cousin, the CIA, and with a headquarters, known
as "Crypto City," that is its own self-contained community, little is known of NSA among
the public and, more troublingly, even within other parts of government. Uncovering the
secrets of NSA, its history and operations, has become Bamford's life's work, first begun
in his now classic The Puzzle Palace (1982) and continued in this significantly revised
and expanded present volume. With remarkable access to highly sensitive documents and
information, Bamford takes the reader from the beginnings of NSA during the early cold
war, through its roles in such watershed events as the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam
War, to the amazingly sophisticated developments in information technology taking place
within NSA today. What Bamford discovers is at times surprising, often quite troubling
but always fascinating. In his conclusion, he is at once awed and deeply disturbed by what
NSA can now do: ever more sophisticated surveillance techniques can mean ever greater
assaults on the basic right of individual privacy. In a computer system that can store
five trillion pages of text, anyone and everyone can be monitored. Writing with a flair
and clarity that rivals those of the best spy novelists, Bamford has created a masterpiece
of investigative reporting.

The Unseen Hand: An Introduction to the Conspiratorial View of History (e-Book)

It is the contention of the author that the major events of the past, the wars, the
depressions and the revolutions, have been planned years in advance by an international
conspiracy. This view is called the Conspiratorial View of History, and is definitely not
the view held by the majority of historians today. The more traditonal view is called The
Accidental View of History, and it holds that no one really knows why events happen--they
just do.

NATO's Secret Army: Operation Gladio and Terrorism in Western Europe (e-Book)

(Contemporary Security Studies)

The CIA and the British secret service MI6, in collaboration with the military alliance
NATO and European military secret services set up a network of clandestine anticommunist
armies in Western Europe after World War II. The secret soldiers were trained on remote
islands in the Mediterranean and in unorthodox warfare centers in England and in the United
States by the Green Berets and SAS Special Forces. The network was armed with explosives,
machine guns and high-tech communication equipment hidden in underground bunkers and
secret arms caches in forests and mountain meadows. In some countries, the secret army
linked up with right-wing terrorists who in a secret war engaged in political manipulation,
harassment of left wing parties, massacres, coup d'etats and torture.

Codenamed "Gladio" ('the sword'), the Italian secret army was exposed in 1990 by Italian
Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti to the Italian Senate, whereupon the press spoke of the
"the best kept, and most damaging, political-military secret since World War II" (Observer,
18. November 1990) and observed that "The story seems straight from the pages of a political
thriller." (The Times, November 19, 1990). Ever since, so-called 'stay-behind' armies of
NATO have also been discovered in France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, the
Netherlands, Luxemburg, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Austria, Greece
and Turkey. They were internationally coordinated by the Pentagon and NATO and had their
last known meeting in the NATO-linked Allied Clandestine Committee (ACC) in Brussels in
October 1990.

Diplomacy By Deception (e-Book)

This is a true and accurate account of treasonous conduct by the British and American
governments: An account of how their citizens are deceived by policies provoking actions
that are totally detrimental to the well-being of their citizens. Thoroughly researched,
the book provides a great deal of hitherto unpublished information and throws new light
on such diverse operations as the Gulf War and the Bolshevik Revolution. The chapter on
covert actions throws new light on the murder of Martin Luther King, Pope John Paul I,
and other notables marked for elimination.

The bloodshed that resulted from the creation of an artificial "Saudi Arabia"; the foreign
policy making role of the petroleum industry; the rape of Mexico by British and American
oil barons; the revolutions they ignited which cost thousands of lives; British conquest
of India, the pernicious Indian 'apartheid' caste system. These are some of the subjects
dealt with in this historic expose' of how our governments deceive under the color of
diplomacy.

"Diplomacy by Deception" tells us that the United Nations is a war-making body, not a
peace-keeping organization, and how the Rockefellers and Alger Hiss, aided by the top
Illuminati Dulles family, got the United States involved with the United Nations. There
is a masterly analysis of constitutional roadblocks barring U.S. membership of the United
Nations that will come as a surprise and leave no doubt that we are not now, nor can we
ever be, a member of the United Nations.

"Diplomacy by Deception" will forever alter your perception of the two leading governments
in Western civilization. This is an excellent companion book to the "Committee of 300"
by the same author.

Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies About the Safety of the
Genetically Engineered Foods You're Eating (e-Book)

Recent news headlines have focused on the disagreement between the U.S. and Europe over
genetically modified foods: the U.S. exports them, but the European Union doesn't want
to import them, believing their safety remains unproven. Are genetically modified foods
safe? Longtime anti-GM foods campaigner Smith presents the "opposing" case. He offers cases
where GM produced results that were at best unexpected (increased starch content in
potatoes), at worst grotesque (pigs without genitals). He describes how one corporation
reportedly tried to bribe Canadian government scientists into approving genetically
engineered bovine growth hormones they deemed unsafe; how some scientists have reported
their careers were threatened as a result of their refusal to approve certain GM products
in the U.S.; and how "conflicts of interest, sloppy science, and industry influence" can
distort the approval process. The cases Smith presents are scary and timely, but he explores
only one side of the story. Readers looking for a balance consideration of genetically
modified foods will want to look elsewhere.

Trance: Formation of America (e-Book)

A century ago a book such as this would have been a call to the barricades. Today with
the state as powerful as it is, this book simply makes you want to leave the United States
and let it rot.

For those who haven't read the book, O'Brien's story is one of a survivor of a CIA-sponsored
program called MK Ultra, which aimed to explore the limits of human "suggestibility." The
program began following World War II, when numerous top Nazi scientists resettled in the
United States, at the invitation of the CIA, to continue their research into mind control.
The project was based upon the research finding that if a person is severely traumatized,
he or she will "split" off a "multiple personality" as a defense mechanism. It was those
"multiples" that CIA scientists sought (successfully) to "program." Today thousand of
people exist as mind-controlled slaves whose "programs" for various activities, such as
performance in pornography films, prostitution, message carrying, and drug "muling," can
be "accessed" by their "controllers" by cryptic keywords.

A reader curious about O'Brien's book should be forewarned of the exceptionally bizarre
nature of its revelations. In fact, at least in my view, the revelations are so bizarre,
it would probably be a bad move to read this book without first reading something that
"builds" up to it. A good primer on the subject would be John Decamp's _The Franklin
Cover-Up_.

Those who do read the book and are of sufficient independent thought to see through the
haze of disinformation put forward every day by the state-influenced newspapers and
magazines and see the truth in O'Brien's book are placed in a difficult position. They're
in possession of extremely rare knowledge, and, futhermore, extremely bleak knowledge.
For the picture painted by O'Brien, unfortunately, is nearly without hope.

I am not a religious person, and I have always been both mildly amused and mildly offended
by the stories of organized religion. But this is, I must admit, a book that can change
such a person as me, for after reading _Tranceformation of America_, I'm left asking an
unanswerable question.
Where did all this wickedness come from?

Empire of Debt: The Rise of an Epic Financial Crisis (e-Book)

Many Americans have resisted the notion that their country is an imperial power. The idea
seems to contradict the values of the Republic and its Founding Fathers. But in Empire
of Debt, prominent financial analysts Bill Bonner and Addison Wiggin argue passionately
that not only is the United States an empire, but it is also one whose end is coming soon.
Bonner and Wiggin are the brains behind dailyreckoning.com, an iconoclastic and irreverent
market advisory service that has long raised concerns about American indebtedness and
warned of a looming dollar crisis. In Empire of Debt, a sequel to their earlier
doom-and-gloom book Financial Reckoning Day, they elaborate on their argument that the
U.S. economy is about to implode.

Bonner and Wiggin enumerate a long list of chronic ailments that imperil the American
financial system--a massive trade deficit, soaring personal and government debt, a housing
bubble, runaway military expenditures. These problems "hardly disturb the sleep of the
imperial race," the authors write. "[But] all empires must pass away." Bonner and Wiggin
argue that American imperial delusions are similar to the fantasies that fueled the dot-com
market mania. They recommend readers buy gold as insurance in the event of a financial
crisis. Empire of Debt flounders when discussing how America indebted itself; the authors
blame the Federal Reserve Board's low interest rates but gloss over the fact that rates
were slashed because the U.S. teetered on the brink of deflation in 2002 and 2003 (a topic
they give more attention to in Financial Reckoning Day). As hardcore free-marketeers,
Bonner and Wiggin also seem to long for the pre-welfare days of the 1920s but forget how
that period's policies led to the Great Depression. That said, Empire of Debt contains
many revelations that will open eyes.

US military: Human Terrain Team Handbook

This 122 page handbook, dated Sep 2008, presents the US military's controversal
anthropology based counterinsurgency techniques.

Formally titled "Human Terrain Team Handbook" the document comes out of the US Army's $190
Million "Human Terrain System" program.

Recent deaths (in May and June 2008) and maiming of Human Terrain Team members have led
to questions in the US media regarding the training of Human Terrain Teams (HTT).

According to the handbook, HTTs are 5-9 person intelligence teams made up of servering
military, contractors and "academicians". The teams are designed to assist a commander's
irregular warfare operations by using anthropological and intelligence techniques to
exploit cultural, political and family relationships in a region.

"Muting the Alarm over the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict"

The New York Times versus Haaretz, 2000-06

The prospects for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict remain poor,
largely because of Israeli rigidity as well as Palestinian policies and internal conflicts.
The United States has failed to use its considerable influence with Israel to seek the
necessary changes in Israeli policies, instead providing almost unconditional support.
The consequences have been disastrous for the Palestinians, for Israeli security and
society, and for critical U.S. national interests in the Middle East. A major explanation
for the failure of U.S. policies is the largely uninformed and uncritical mainstream and
even elite media coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the United States. In
contrast, the debate in Israel is more self-critical, vigorous, and far-ranging, creating
at least the possibility of change, even as U.S. policy stagnates. A comparison of the
coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by the two most prestigious daily newspapers
in the United States and Israel—in particular the breakdown of the peace process in 2000
and the ensuing Palestinian intifada, the nature of the Israeli occupation, the problem
of violence and terrorism, and the prospects for peace today—underscores these
differences. While the New York Times has muted the alarm over the dangers of the United
States’ near-unconditional support for Israeli policies toward the Palestinian, Haaretz
has sought to sound the alarm.

A Pension in Every Pot:

Better Pensions for More Canadians

With its Byzantine complexity and jurisdictional overlap, Canadian

pension regulation makes it difficult for many workers to save enough

for retirement. Access to retirement saving room is inequitably distributed between public
and private sector workers, according to a study released today by the C.D. Howe Institute.
In “A Pension in Every Pot: Better Pensions for More Canadians,” author James Pierlot says
Canada’s retirement saving system serves some workers well and others not, depending on
whether they have a career in the public sector or in the private sector. He offers some
practical approaches to making Canada's private retirement saving system work – for
everyone. He recommends replacing the current system of annual contribution limits with
a more equitable lump-sum, lifetime accumulation target of $1 million – or more.

America's War On Terrorism (e-Book)
In this new and expanded edition of Michel Chossudovsky's 2002 best seller, the author
blows away the smokescreen put up by the mainstream media, that 9/11 was an attack on America
by "Islamic terrorists". The expanded edition, which includes twelve new chapters focuses
on the use of 9/11 as a pretext for the invasion and illegal occupation of Iraq, the
militarisation of justice and law enforcement and the repeal of democracy. According to
Chossudovsky, the "war on terrorism" is a complete fabrication based on the illusion that
one man, Osama bin Laden, outwitted the $40 billion-a-year American intelligence
apparatus. The "war on terrorism" is a war of conquest. Globalisation is the final march
to the "New World Order", dominated by Wall Street and the U.S. military-industrial
complex. September 11, 2001 provides a justification for waging a war without borders.
Washington's agenda consists in extending the frontiers of the American Empire to
facilitate complete U.S. corporate control, while installing within America the
institutions of the Homeland Security State. Chossudovsky peels back layers of rhetoric
to reveal a complex web of deceit aimed at luring the American people and the rest of the
world into accepting a military solution which threatens the future of humanity.

Secret Agenda: The United States Government, Nazi Scientists, and Project Paperclip, 1945
to 1990 (e-Book)

Here, Hunt, a former CNN investigative reporter, tells a shocking tale: how a branch of
the US government deliberately thwarted attempts to bring to justice Nazi scientists who
were guilty of war crimes, and who, in at least one case, actually participated in fresh
atrocities in the US. While it is common knowledge that the US used Nazi scientists during
the cold war, Hunt reveals for the first time that the project to recruit and utilize Nazi
scientific talent- -code-named "Paperclip''--continued until 1973. In addition, while
former Nazi scientists (like Werner von Braun) contributed greatly to the development of
rockets, jet planes, and other prodigies of technology, Hunt convincingly demonstrates
that several such scientists also participated in "Dachau-like experiments on over seven
thousand U.S. soldiers'' on the effects of LSD and other chemicals at Edgewood, Maryland,
between 1947 and 1966. Moreover, Hunt explains that the US avidly recruited many Nazi
scientists, despite their war crimes--including utilization of slave labor and execution
of prisoners--and despite the continuing devotion of many to Nazi ideology. Hunt also
relates the sordid details of the intelligence community's attempts to prevent bringing
these scientists to justice. And, in at least one case, she shows that the program was
inimical to US interests--the man who conceived and ran Paperclip was ultimately convicted
of selling American defense secrets to the Soviet Union. An engrossing examination of how
a small clique of defense and intelligence officials deliberately subverted stated US
policy.

Hard Lessons: The Iraq Reconstruction Experience
Federal history of the American-led reconstruction of Iraq depicts an effort crippled
before the invasion by Pentagon planners who were hostile to the idea of rebuilding a
foreign country, and then molded into a $100 billion failure by bureaucratic turf wars,
spiraling violence and ignorance of the basic elements of Iraqi society and infrastructure.

River Out Of Eden: A Darwinian View Of Life (e-Book)

(Science Masters Series)

Nearly a century and a half after Charles Darwin formulated it, the theory of evolution
is still the subject of considerable debate. Oxford scientist Richard Dawkins is among
Darwin's chief defenders, and an able one indeed-- witty, literate, capable of turning
a beautiful phrase. In River Out of Eden he introduces general readers to some fairly
abstract problems in evolutionary biology, gently guiding us through the tangles of
mitochondrial DNA and the survival-of-the- fittest ethos. (Superheroes need not apply:
Dawkins writes, "The genes that survive . . . will be the ones that are good at surviving
in the average environment of the species.") Dawkins argues for the essential unity of
humanity, noting that "we are much closer cousins of one another than we normally realize,
and we have many fewer ancestors than simple calculations suggest."

Encyclopedia of Espionage, Intelligence and Security (e-Book)

Of the approximately 800 to 850 articles in this set, I have reviewed nearly forty entries
across a range of subtopics. Although I find the A-Z format to be cumbersome when attempting
to link information related to a particular topic, the overall organization is logical
and friendly to the average reader. The photos and article content make the set as readable
as many single topic books. It is hard to turn the page without finding interesting or
valuable reading on a topic recently in the news.

The set is at its best when tackling science and technology related topics. Written and
edited by scientists and teachers for the general public, the articles often take the space
to explain fundamental science concepts and how they relate to emerging security related
technologies. The science articles are first-rate and show consistent effort to make tough
and complex topics understandable.

The books set a modest goal of portraying the impact of modern science and technology on
security issues, but the editors and writers achieve more by including interesting short
articles on historical topics that also emphasize the impact of the science and technology
on the history of espionage and intelligence. The selection of articles shows a crafted
regard not to tread the well-worn path of prior books on spycraft, and the omissions allow
the authors to explore fresh angles to old stories. While the political and historical
articles often seem condensed, and in places oversimplified, they add readability,
usefulness, and context to the more technical articles.

The non-science writing is utilitarian, but having the wide range of topics related to
countries and organizations in one set is handy. Although certain articles may subtly
convey a particular author's bias, the overall tone of the book is decidedly balanced and
fair. In fact, although apparently written before the conclusion of the recent war in Iraq,
and the rise of issues related to the search for WMD stockpiles, the book exhibits an eerie
insight into the complexities of the intelligence issues and failures related the current
WMD controversy.

God's Problem: How the Bible Fails to Answer Our Most Important Question--Why We Suffer
(e-Book)

In this sometimes provocative, often pedantic memoir of his own attempts to answer the
great theological question about the persistence of evil in the world, Ehrman, a UNC–Chapel
Hill religion professor, refuses to accept the standard theological answers. Through close
readings of every section of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament, he discovers that
the Bible offers numerous answers that are often contradictory. The prophets think God
sends pain and suffering as a punishment for sin and also that human beings who oppress
others create such misery; the writers who tell the Jesus story and the Joseph stories
think God works through suffering to achieve redemptive purposes; the writers of Job view
pain as God's test; and the writers of Job and Ecclesiastes conclude that we simply cannot
know why we suffer. In the end, frustrated that the Bible offers such a range of opposing
answers, Ehrman gives up on his Christian faith and fashions a peculiarly utilitarian
solution to suffering and evil in the world: first, make this life as pleasing to ourselves
as we can and then make it pleasing to others. Although Ehrman's readings of the biblical
texts are instructive, he fails to convince readers that these are indeed God's problems,
and he fails to advance the conversation any further than it's already come.

Gestapo-Chief: The CIA & Heinrich Müller (e-Book)

In 1948, the former head of Hitler’s Gestapo was interviewed by senior officials of the
CIA in Switzerland where Muller had been in hiding since the end of the Second World War.
His interview, for Colonel James Critchfield of the CIA’s Gehlen Organization, runs to
nearly a thousand pages and for years was hidden in the CIA’s files.

This is a translation of a part of the interview, which was initially conducted in German
and then translated into English for CIA use.

It is a fascinating series of historical episodes covering both the Axis and Allied sides
with comments on Hitler, Stalin, Roosevelt, Henry Wallace, Winston Churchill, the 20th
of July bomb plot against Hitler, Bishop von Galen’s heroic, and successful, attacks on
the Nazis and their euthanasia program, the concentration camps, the Duke of Windsor, the
Roger Casement diaries and many more fascinating and insightful views of a man who ran
the most effective counter-intelligence agency in modern times.

There is also extensive information on the attempts on the part of the CIA to silence or
discredit the fact that the Gestapo Chief worked for the United States and eventually came
to live in Washington, D.C. as part of the notorious “Operation Paperclip.”Fascinating
inside views of many top Nazis and CIA officials.

The Dark Side of Christian History (e-Book)

Over a period of nearly two millennia, the Christian Church has oppressed and brutalized
millions of individuals. Meticulously researched and courageously written, "The Dark Side
of Christian History" by Helen Ellerbe examines the Church's devastating impact upon human
freedom, dignity and spirituality. Written for the lay reader, this controversial book
is especially relevant today as the religious right is attempting to assert greater
influence in American politics and society. "The Dark Side of Christian History presents
a compelling argument that the Church's desire to control and contain spiritually motivated
its persecution of heretics, its burning of libraries, the Crusades, the Inquisition, and
the witch-hunts. This dark Christianity ahs left a legacy, a world view, which permeates
every aspect of Western society. It is a legacy which fosters sexism, racism, the
intolerance of difference and the desecration of the natural environment.

How to Build a Nuclear Bomb and other weapons of mass destruction (e-Book)

Weapons of mass destruction (WMD) are the greatest threat to national security in the
twenty-first century. How to Build a Nuclear Bomb explains what it takes for a rogue state
or terrorist group to obtain and use them. But nuclear weapons and terrorism expert Frank
Barnaby has not written a collection of scare stories. His purpose in How to Build a Nuclear
Bomb is to counteract the "misinformation, often put out for propaganda purposes" and
general ignorance on this most urgent of topics. Barnaby describes, in straightforward,
non-sensational terms what is involved when a state or a terrorist group sets out to make
a weapon of mass destruction, what they are capable of doing, and what is needed to produce
one. By outlining the parameters of the problem, Barnaby is able to accurately gauge the
threat that WMD pose, arguing that counterterrorist measures urgently need to be stepped
up to meet the challenges of a new era of international terror.

Behold A Pale Horse (e-Book)

Behold a Pale Horse is definitely not a book to curl up on the couch with on a Sunday
afternoon. The topics William Cooper discusses will very likely keep you reading late into
the night. There are two types of people in the world: those who want to know who exactly
is controlling whom, and those who are more comfortable taking things at face value. I
will say up front that I didn't believe everything I read in this book, such as some of
the references about UFOs. What really disturbed me was the theory of the true intent of
the government. Cooper's account of what the government is capable of in times of heightened
alert is extremely relevant now. It is important to keep in mind that this book was published
before the attack on the World Trade Center because the US is finding itself in exactly
the position Cooper predicted. Whether or not you think you might agree with the information
in this book, I recommend any book written by someone who was killed for the purpose of
silencing him or her. Be an informed citizen and know what your government is capable of.

Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why (e-Book)

The popular perception of the Bible as a divinely perfect book receives scant support from
Ehrman, who sees in Holy Writ ample evidence of human fallibility and ecclesiastical
politics. Though himself schooled in evangelical literalism, Ehrman has come to regard
his earlier faith in the inerrant inspiration of the Bible as misguided, given that the
original texts have disappeared and that the extant texts available do not agree with one
another. Most of the textual discrepancies, Ehrman acknowledges, matter little, but some
do profoundly affect religious doctrine. To assess how ignorant or theologically
manipulative scribes may have changed the biblical text, modern scholars have developed
procedures for comparing diverging texts. And in language accessible to nonspecialists,
Ehrman explains these procedures and their results. He further explains why textual
criticism has frequently sparked intense controversy, especially among scripture-alone
Protestants. In discounting not only the authenticity of existing manuscripts but also
the inspiration of the original writers, Ehrman will deeply divide his readers. Although
he addresses a popular audience, he undercuts the very religious attitudes that have made
the Bible a popular book. Still, this is a useful overview for biblical history collections.

Socialism: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (e-Book)

What is socialism? Does it have a future, or has it become an outdated ideology in the
21st century? Michael Newman examines and explains the successes and failures of modern
socialism by taking an international perspective -- ranging from communism in Cuba to
social democracy in Sweden. Discussing its evolution from the industrial towns of the 19th
century to its response to the feminist, green, and anti-capitalist movements today, Newman
concludes that, with its values of equality, solidarity, and cooperation, socialism
remains as relevant as ever but that it needs to learn lessons from the past.

Media Control: The Spectacular Achievements of Propaganda (e-Book)

(The Open Media Pamphlet Series , No 1)

"Propaganda," says Noam Chomsky, "is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian
state"--in other words, the means by which leaders keep the masses in line. In this slim
pamphlet, he looks at American propaganda efforts, from the warmongering of Woodrow Wilson
to the creation of popular support for the 1991 military intervention in Kuwait, and reveals
how falsification of history, suppression of information, and the promotion of vapid, empty
concepts have become standard operating procedure for the leaders of the United
States--both Democrats and Republicans--in their efforts to prevent citizens from raising
awkward questions about U.S. policy.

Propaganda And Mass Persuasion

A Historical Encyclopedia, 1500 to the Present (e-Book)

A truly International, authoritative A-Z guide to five centuries of propaganda, in both
war time and peace time, which covers key moments, techniques, concepts and some of the
most influential propagandists in history. What were the secrets of both Hitler's and
Stalin's success? Why did so many Americans approve of Senator Joseph McCarthy? How did
FDR maintain his image with the electorate? The answers to these questions can be found
in the realm of propaganda: the art of mass political persuasion. This fascinating survey
provides a comprehensive introduction to propaganda, its changing nature, its
practitioners, and its impact on the past five centuries of world history. Written by
leading experts, it covers the masters of the art from Goebbels to Gandhi and examines
enormously influential works of persuasion, such as Uncle Tom's Cabin, techniques such
as films and posters, and key concepts like black propaganda and brainwashing. Case studies
reveal the role of mass persuasion during the Reformation, the American Revolution, the
Vietnam War, and today's War on Terrorism. Regional studies cover propaganda superpowers,
such as Russia, China, and the United States as well as the little-known propaganda
campaigns in Southeast Asia, Ireland, and Scandinavia, In short, the book traces the
evolution of propaganda from the era of printed handbills to computer fakery and profiles
such brilliant practitioners of the art as the Third Reich's film director, Leni
Riefenstahl, and the cartoonist, Thomas Nast, whose works helped to bring the notorious
Boss Tweed to justice.

Chain of Blame: How Wall Street Caused the Mortgage and Credit Crisis (e-Book)

In the summer of 2007, the subprime empire that Wall Street had built all came crashing
down. On average, fifty lenders a month were going bust-and the people responsible for
the crisis included not just unregulated loan brokers andcon artists, but also investment
bankers and home loan institutions traditionally perceived as completely trustworthy.

Chain of Blame chronicles this incredible disaster, with a specific focus on the players
who participated in such a fundamentally flawed fiasco. Authors Paul Muolo and Mathew
Padilla, well-regarded journalists for National Mortgage News and the Orange County
Register respectively, reveal the truth behind how this crisis occurred, what individuals
and institutions-from lenders and brokers to some of the biggest investment banks in the
world-were doing during this critical time, and who is ultimately responsible for what
happened.

Undue Influence How the Wall Street Elite Put the Financial System at Risk (e-Book)

The Glass-Steagall Act, separating commercial banks from investment banks, was passed in
1933 to prevent banks from risking depositors' funds on the still-shaky stock market. It
was repealed in 1999, when gambling other people's money on the stock market was considered
the height of financial probity. In this engaging history of Glass-Steagall, Geisst (Wall
Street: A History) surveys the 70 years leading to this ideological sea change, as the
widespread Depression-era populist suspicion of Wall Street subsided, to be replaced with
the pro-business dogma of the Reagan era and the New Economy bubble. Formal repeal, Geisst
shows, was preceded by decades during which big commercial banks, hungry for a slice of
the lucrative investment banking business, increasingly flouted Glass-Steagall
restrictions with the connivance of ideologically sympathetic Federal Reserve regulators.
The vast sums banks have spent on lobbying and campaign contributions, and the cushy Wall
Street jobs awaiting government officials who switch sides, make Geisst wonder whether
"the gamekeepers and the poachers had all joined the same club." Geisst provides a lucid
guide to the financial issues involved and a colorful account of decades-long political
debates and legislative wranglings, while raising troubling questions about the direction
of public policy.

Modern Money Mechanics

The purpose of this booklet is to describe the basic process of money creation in a
"fractional reserve" banking system. The approach taken illustrates the changes in bank
balance sheets that occur when deposits in banks change as a result of monetary action
by the Federal Reserve System - the central bank of the United States. The relationships
shown are based on simplifying assumptions. For the sake of simplicity, the relationships
are shown as if they were mechanical, but they are not, as is described later in the booklet.
Thus, they should not be interpreted to imply a close and predictable relationship between
a specific central bank transaction and the quantity of money.
The introductory pages contain a brief general description of the characteristics of money
and how the U.S. money system works. The illustrations in the following two sections
describe two processes: first, how bank deposits expand or contract in response to changes
in the amount of reserves supplied by the central bank; and second, how those reserves
are affected by both Federal Reserve actions and other factors. A final section deals with
some of the elements that modify, at least in the short run, the simple mechanical
relationship between bank reserves and deposit money.

Money is such a routine part of everyday living that its existence and acceptance ordinarily
are taken for granted. A user may sense that money must come into being either automatically
as a result of economic activity or as an outgrowth of some government operation. But just
how this happens all too often remains a mystery.

A Private War

In 2004 American Eagle Communities became the lowest bid not only to build the new homes,
but to renovate and manage more than 700 more at the Little Rock Air Force Base. At the
time, the deal was estimated to be worth 500 million dollars. But after building only 25
of the 468 new homes American Eagle left town.

This change order, approved by the Navy in August 2007, forgave $14 million in cost overruns
and delays on the Navy privatized housing project in the Pacific Northwest.

This lawsuit, filed by John Jack in 2006 to recover taxpayer money from the American Eagle
project in the Puget Sound region, remained sealed from public view until a government
investigation of his allegations was completed. It was unsealed in May.

Fateful Triangle: The United States, Israel, and the Palestinians (Updated Edition)
(e-Book)

First published in 1983, Fateful Triangle is a comprehensive indictment of what Noam
Chomsky calls the "disgraceful and extremely dangerous" policy the United States has
enacted towards Israel, particularly with regard to Israel's actions concerning the
Palestinians. Supporters of Israel must willfully overlook or deny that nation's long
history of human rights violations and military aggression, Chomsky writes, and they will
continue to do so as long as Israel is strategically useful towards "the U.S. aim of
eliminating possible threats, largely indigenous, to American domination of the Middle
East region." In the course of elaborating his argument, Chomsky cuts through the myths
and distortions that appear in mainstream media accounts; the damning facts that he so
systematically assembles portray a government more brutally and overtly racist, perhaps,
than even apartheid-era South Africa. Three new chapters, drawing upon material from Z
magazine and other publications, incorporate such developments as the Palestinian
uprising, Israel's war on Lebanon, and the ongoing "peace process."

"A devastating collection of charges aimed at Israeli and American policies that affect
the Palestinian Arabs negatively," said LJ's reviewer of this thesis on Middle East
politics. With several additional chapters, a new preface, and a new foreword by Edward
Said, Chomsky brings the story up-to-date. With the political situation in the Middle East
just as hot now, this is bound to be an important volume.

Holy Hatred: Christianity, Antisemitism, and the Holocaust (e-Book)

“A praiseworthy achievement—a model of its kind.”

--Paul R. Bartrop, Honorary Research Fellow, The Faculty of Arts, Deakin University, and
Head of History, Bialik College--

“Holy Hatred is a masterful, beautifully written study of how Christianity and the churches
shaped and sustained a lethal antisemitism for almost two millennia. Future studies of
the Holocaust or of antisemitism will have to address Michael's work.”

--Eunice G. Pollack, University of North Texas--

 “Following in the footsteps of Poliakov and Flannery, this book offers a powerful
description of Christianity's intimate involvement with Judeophobia and anti-Semitism
from the gospels forward.”

--Peter J. Haas, Abba Hillel Silver Professor of Jewish Studies, Chair, Department of
Religious Studies, and Director, The Samuel Rosenthal Center for Judaic Studies, Case
Western Reserve University--

“If anyone still remains ignorant of the Christian origins of anti-Semitism—ancient and
modern—and its contribution to the Holocaust, this book will remedy that bliss: clearly,
and in comprehensive detail.”

--Richard Elliott Sherwin, Professor, Bar-Ilan University--

Although Christianity's precise influence on the Holocaust cannot be determined and the
Christian churches did not themselves perpetrate the Final Solution, Robert Michael argues
in Holy Hatred that the two millennia of Christian ideas and prejudices and their impact
on Christians' behavior appear to be the major basis of antisemitism and of the apex of
antisemitism, the Holocaust.

Preparing the U.S. Army for Homeland Security: Concepts, Issues, and Options

Homeland security encompasses five distinct missions: domestic preparednessand civil
support in case of attacks on civilians, continuity of government, continuity ofmilitary
operations, border and coastal defense, and national missile defense. This
reportextensively details four of those mission areas (national missile defense having
beencovered in great detail elsewhere). The authors define homeland security and its
missionareas, provide a methodology for assessing homeland security response options, and
reviewrelevant trend data for each mission area. They also assess the adequacy of the
doctrine,organizations, training, leadership, materiel, and soldier systems and provide
illustrativescenarios to help clarify Army planning priorities. The report concludes with
options andrecommendations for developing more cost-effective programs and recommends a
planningframework that can facilitate planning to meet homeland security needs.

Executive Order 13224 (Section 3 would describe Israel/Palestine)

Blocking Property And Prohibiting Transactions With Persons Who Commit, Threaten To
Commit, Or Support Terrorism

Executive Order 13224 is an executive order signed into law by U.S. President George W.
Bush on September 23, 2001 as a response to the September 11, 2001 attacks. In general
terms, the Order provides a means by which to disrupt the financial support network for
terrorists and terrorist organizations by authorizing the U.S. government to designate
and block the assets of foreign individuals and entities that commit, or pose a significant
risk of committing, acts of terrorism. In addition, the Order authorizes the U.S.
government to block the assets of individuals and entities that provide support, services,
or assistance to, or otherwise associate with, terrorists and terrorist organizations
designated under the Order, as well as their subsidiaries, front organizations, agents,
and associates.

The Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC") of the US Department of the Treasury
administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions based on US foreign policy and
national security goals against targeted foreign countries, terrorists, international
narcotics traffickers, and those engaged in activities related to the proliferation of
weapons of mass destruction. It maintains a list of individuals and organizations
indentified by Executive Order 13224.

Beyond Chutzpah

On the Misuse of Anti-Semitism and the Abuse of History

Finkelstein, a political science professor and author of The Holocaust Industry:
Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering, has conducted a rancorous public feud
with Harvard Law professor and pro-Israel stalwart Alan Dershowitz over the latter's The
Case for Israel, and here expands his arguments into a vigorous polemic on the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The first part of the book examines what he feels is a growing
tendency of pro-Israel commentators to use spurious charges of anti-Semitism to deflect
and discredit legitimate criticism of Israel. The second, much longer, part is a
line-by-line debunking of The Case for Israel, which he compares to Communist apologetics
for Stalinist Russia. Rebutting Dershowitz's claims about Israel's "superb" human rights
record, Finkelstein cites human rights organizations like Amnesty International, Human
Rights Watch and the Israeli group B'Tselem to document Israeli abuses in the occupied
territories, including killings of Palestinian civilians, torture of Palestinian
prisoners and home demolitions. Lengthy appendices flesh out his explosive assertion that
Dershowitz plagiarized the historical research and interpretations (but not the actual
phrasing) of Joan Peters's From Time Immemorial. The Middle East conflict rarely inspires
calm discussion, and Finkelstein duly pillories his opponents as perpetrators of "hoax"
and "fraud" who lack "ordinary moral values" and whose behavior resembles anti-Semitic
stereotypes. Inflammatory rhetoric aside, he does raise serious questions about the
veracity, scholarly methods and fairness of Dershowitz and others. More important, he
presents a wealth of evidence on the human rights situation in the occupied territories,
so often ignored in American debate on these issues. Exhaustively researched and
meticulously-if intemperately-argued, Finkelstein's book is a formidable challenge to the
conventional wisdom on the Middle East.

Supporters of this book will not include Alan Dershowitz, author of The Case for Israel
(2003). Very little of Dershowitz's widely acclaimed defense of Israel's occupation
policies escapes Finkelstein's withering scrutiny. Behind Dershowitz's firm assurances
that Israel is dealing with its adversaries justly and humanely, Finkelstein discerns ugly
realities, including brutal torture of Palestinian prisoners and lethal disregard for
Palestinian children and noncombatants. In Finkelstein's assessment, Israel is grievously
violating Palestinian rights because its leaders deliberately choose to ignore both the
humanity of the Palestinian people and the justice of international law. And in the claim
that will perhaps stir the fiercest debates, Finkelstein asserts that when Dershowitz and
his allies defend Israel with shoddy and mendacious scholarship, they actually stoke the
very anti-Semitism they claim to be combating. Neither anti-Semitism nor global antipathy
toward Israel will persist, Finkelstein avers, if Israel and its partisans will honestly
confront and redress the malign consequences of current Israeli policies.

The Gaza Strip As Laboratory: Notes In The Wake Of Disengagement

Chronically described as poor, overcrowded, and dangerous, the Gaza Strip exemplifies the
longstanding Zionist “dilemma” of how to deal with dense concentrations of Palestinians
who must not be granted equality but who cannot be removed or exterminated en masse. This
article analyzes key Israeli policies toward the Gaza Strip—specifically, the use of
closure, buffer zones, and air power—in the context of the Zionist movement’s broader
geographic and demographic goals. It argues that the Gaza Strip can be usefully seen as
a “laboratory” in which Israel fine-tunes a dubious balance of maximum control and minimum
responsibility, refining techniques that are also suggestive of possible futures for the
West Bank.

Judicial Culpability for War and Genocide in the Age of American Empire

For legal purposes, the American empire was inaugurated in the 1870s with the invasion
and occupation by the USA (and Canada) of the national territories of the Indians of North
America, and continues with the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq.

The prevention of empire and, correspondingly, of war and genocide pursuant to empire,
depends upon establishing the rule of law, responsibility for which constitutionally is
vested in the judicial branch of government.

Its job is to uphold constitutional democracy under the rule of law against political
usurpation of the People's exclusive sovereign power over constitutional change secured
by the Article V Amendment Formula.

Instead it has politicized itself, not only in terms of excusing usurpation by Congress
and the President, but also in terms of the "living tree" approach to the constitution
which permits judicial pruning and splicing as an alternative to Article V.
One consequence is unconstitutional empire, war and genocide which, directly concerning
the life of the People, is the definitive legal issue for testing the existence of the
rule of law and, by extension, of democracy under the rule of law.

I.O.U.S.A.: One Nation. Under Stress. In Debt. (e-Book)

The United States has been spending its way deeper and deeper into the red, and saddling
future generations with the mess—but who's paying attention?

To answer that question, the companion book to the critically acclaimed documentary
I.O.U.S.A. talks with some of the most revered voices in the nation, including Warren
Buffett; former Treasury Secretaries Paul O’Neill and Robert Rubin; Pete Peterson, CEO
of The Blackstone Group; Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas); and bestselling Empire of Debt
author Bill Bonner.

Armed with these interviews, historical references, and damning statistics, the book takes
a lively and entertaining romp through the four deficits the nation faces: the budget
deficit, the personal savings deficit, the trade deficit—and what former U.S. Comptroller
General David Walker, who resigned abruptly in 2008 over Congress’s lack of action, calls
the “leadership deficit” in Washington.

Defiantly non-partisan, the empowering solutions outlined in these pages are a must-read
for any American who wants to help change “business-as-usual” in Washington as a new
administration heads towards the Oval Office. “We the People” can get our politicians to
stop spending, promote responsible economic programs, and hand our children and
grandchildren the secure future they deserve.

Six Months of the Lull Arrangement Intelligence Report

Six Months of the Lull Arrangement Intelligence Report

Confirmed that the June 19 truce was only "sporadically violated, and then not by Hamas
but instead by ... "rogue terrorist organisations".

Instead, "the escalation and erosion of the lull arrangement" occurred after Israel killed
six Hamas members on November 4 without provocation and then placed the entire Strip under
an even more intensive siege the next day.

Crusades: The Illustrated History - Christendom, Islam, Pilgrimage, War (e-Book)

The crusades are often seen as either heroic campaigns by chivalrous Christian knights,
or as bloodthirsty imperialist expeditions motivated by greed and bigotry, depending on
your viewpoint. In this volume leading crusades historian Thomas Madden attempts to correct
these stereotypes, by bringing to the general reader the best in modern scholarship on
the subject. The contributors succeed admirably, aided by lavish colour illustrations.
A balanced view emerges of the crusaders as men with their share of human failings, but
who were motivated by high ideals, albeit ones that we would not share today. The book
takes a broad view of the crusades, placing them in the context of medieval society both
east and west, with due coverage of Muslim perspectives. It also covers areas other than
the Holy Land, as the popes used the crusade as a weapon against Muslims everywhere, pagans,
heretics, and even against fellow Christians. This is a visually attractive and highly
readable work, that will appeal both to scholars and general readers

Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace (e-Book)

In this collection of essays, noted novelist and critic Vidal turns his acerbic wit on
the United States. Never shy about expressing his opinion, Vidal questions U.S. assumptions
regarding the Oklahoma City and World Trade Center bombings: "That our ruling junta might
have seriously provoked McVeigh and Osama was never dealt with." His critique of the
coverage of September 11 is slim, mostly centering on already reported truisms about why
many in the Muslim world sympathize in some way with Osama bin Laden. Some readers, however,
will share his unease with the willingness on the part of the American government and the
American people to put concerns for civil liberties on the back burner during the war on
terrorism. Vidal's criticisms of McVeigh, with whom he struck up a correspondence and a
relationship, is more detailed. In Vidal's view, it is unlikely that McVeigh was solely
responsible for Oklahoma City, and he saw himself as a martyr for a libertarian cause that
would rescue America. But in this book, the tone is as important as the text. Vidal gleefully
skewers American capitalism and the role of the religious right in American politics at
every opportunity. Critics of American policy and American life, as well as those prone
to conspiracy theories, are likely to find a lot of fodder. Many will not be surprised
that Vidal's views have not received a wider hearing a piece on McVeigh was rejected by
Vanity Fair, another by the Nation but even at his most contrarian, Vidal's writing is
powerful and graceful.

Creation (e-Book)

Creation is an epic historical fiction novel by Gore Vidal which was published in 1981.
In 2002, he published a restored version, adding four chapters that a previous editor had
cut. He also added a brief 2002 foreword explaining what had happened to the book in its
original version and why he restored the cut chapters.

The story follows the adventures of an imaginary "Cyrus Spitama", an Achaemenid Persian
diplomat of the 5th century BC who travels the known world comparing the political and
religious beliefs of various nation states of the time. Along the way he meets influential
philosophical figures of his time, including Zoroaster, Socrates, the Buddha, Mahavira,
Lao Tsu, and Confucius.

Cyrus, who is the grandson of Zoroaster and who survives his murder, grows up at the
Achaemenid court as a quasi-noble, and becomes a close friend of his schoolmate Xerxes.
Because of his talent with languages, Cyrus Spitama is sent by the King Darius as ambassador
to India, but he is more interested in the many religious theories he encounters there
than in establishing profitable trade relations for Darius. After his school friend Xerxes
comes to power, the king sends Cyrus Spitama to China, where he spends several years as
a captive and "honored guest" in one of the warring states of the Middle Kingdom, and spends
a great deal of time with Confucius. Upon returning home, Cyrus witnesses the defeat of
Xerxes and the end of the Greco-Persian wars. Cyrus then goes into retirement, but is called
upon by the King Artaxerxes to serve as ambassador to Athens and witness to the secret
peace treaty between Pericles and himself.

The story is related in the first person, as "recalled" to his Greek great-nephew
Democritus. Cyrus says he wants to set the record straight after hearing what Herodotus
had to say about the Greco-Persian wars.

The Giant With Feet of Clay : Raul Hilberg and his Standard Work on the Holocaust

(Holocaust Handbooks Series, 3)

Raul Hilberg's major work The Destruction of European Jewry is generally considered the
standard work on the Holocaust. Jürgen Graf applies the methods of critical analysis to
Hilberg’s evidence and examines the results in the light of Revisionist historiography.
The results of Graf’s critical analysis are devastating for Hilberg.

Belzec in Propaganda, Testimonies, Archeological Research, and History

600,000, if not as many as 3 million Jews, were allegedly murdered in Belzec camp between
Nov. 1941 and Dec. 1942. Various murder weapons are claimed: diesel gas chambers; quicklime
in trains; high voltage; vacuum chambers. According to witnesses, the corpses were finally
incinerated on huge pyres without leaving any traces... This study exposes the Belzec hoax
by thoroughly examining all available evidence, including forensic drillings and
excavations of the late 1990s.

Concentration Camp Stutthof

And Its function In National Socialist Jewish Policy

According to communist literature, the Stutthof camp was a ‘makeshift’ extermination camp
within the framework of the so-called ‘Final Solution of the Jewish Question’ in 1944. Jürgen
Graf and Carlo Mattogno have examined this view of Stutthof. Not only do the authors prove
that the Stutthof camp did not serve as a ‘makeshift’ extermination camp.

The Rudolf Report

Expert Report on Chemical and Technical Aspects

of the ‘Gas Chambers’ of Auschwitz

The so-called Leuchter Report about the alleged gas chambers of Auschwitz and Majdanek
has been subject to massive, and partly justified, criticism. Rudolf wrote a thorough
forensic study about the alleged gas chambers of Auschwitz which irons out the deficiencies
and discrepancies of the Leuchter Report. The Rudolf Report is the first English edition
of this sensational scientific work.

The First Holocaust
Jewish Fund Raising Campaigns With Holocaust

Claims During And After World War One

Supported with many publications, in particular from The New York Times, the author shows
that between 1916 and the late 1920s, mainly American Jewish organizations were claiming
that up to six million Jews(!) would suffer terribly in Eastern Europe and would face a
holocaust if they did not receive massive aid.

Jürgen Graf, Carlo Mattogno, Concentration Camp Majdanek. A Historical and Technical Study

Common information available on the Madjanek camp is thoroughly discredited Polish
Communists propaganda. With their exhaustive study, Mattogno and Graf expertly dissect
and repudiate the myth of homicidal gas chambers at Majdanek. They also investigated the
legendary mass executions of Jews in tank trenches ("Operation Harvest Festival")
critically and prove them groundless.

The Bunkers of Auschwitz. Black Propaganda versus History

The so-called “Bunkers” at Auschwitz are claimed to have been the first homicidal gas
chambers at Auschwitz specifically erected for this purpose in early 1942. With help of
the files of the Auschwitz construction office, this study shows that these “Bunkers” never
existed, how the rumors of these alleged gas chambers evolved as black propaganda created
by resistance groups within the camp, and how this propaganda was transformed into ‘reality’
by historians.

Auschwitz: Open Air Incinerations

Due to a restricted capacity of the Auschwitz crematoria, hundreds of thousands of corpses

Carlo Mattogno shows that the stories about these open air incinerations, although based

Special Treatment in Auschwitz. Origin and Meaning of a Term

According to official historiography, terms like "special treatment," or "special action,"
when occurring in German documents in the context of the "Holocaust", were camouflage words
which really meant the killing of inmates.

By bringing numerous documents into their proper historical context, Carlo Mattogno shows
that this interpretation is profoundly wrong.

Jewish Emigration from the Third Reich

Jewish emigration was welcomed by the German authorities of the Third Reich. It was not
some kind of wild flight, but rather a lawfully determined and regulated matter. Weckert's
booklet elucidates the emigration process in law and policy, thereby augmenting the
traditionally received picture of Jewish emigration from Germany. The accounts of Jews
fleeing Germany in secret by night across some border are untenable.

Since the existence of Zionism, one constant trend of thought has been the direction of
Weizmann, Greenbaum, Sharett, Ben Gurion, Ehrenpreisz, Kastner, Stephen Wise, the councils
in the ghettoes and the rescue committees of the free world. The only yearning was for
the State. The people as a whole, or a segment thereof, were merely for the realization
of a "homeland". Whoever did not serve this purpose might as well have not been created.

Munitions of the Mind: A History of Propaganda, Third Edition (e-Book)

A classic work, Munitions of the mind traces how propaganda has formed part of the fabric
of conflict since the dawn of warfare, and how in its broadest definition it has also been
part of a process of persuasion at the heart of human communication. Stone monuments, coins,
broadsheets, paintings and pamphlets, posters, radio, film, television, computers and
satellite communications - throughout history, propaganda has had access to ever more
complex and versatile media.

This third edition has been revised and expanded to include a new preface, new chapters
on the 1991 Gulf War, information age conflict in the post-Cold War era, and the world
after the terrorist attacks of September 11. It also offers a new epilogue and a
comprehensive bibliographical essay.

The extraordinary range of this book, as well as the original and cohesive analysis it
offers, make it an ideal text for all international courses covering media and
communications studies, cultural history, military history and politics. It will also
prove fascinating and accessible to the general reader.

The Confiscation of American Prosperity: From Right-Wing Extremism and Economic Ideology
to the Next Great Depression (e-Book)

This book argues that the right-wing revolution in the United States has created deepening
inequality and will lead to economic catastrophe. The author makes the case that over the
past three decades the rich have confiscated wealth and income from the poor and middle
class to a far greater extent than many realize, and he explores in detail important but
commonly unmeasured dimensions of inequality. He also takes aim at the economics
profession, criticising the analytical blinders that leave economists incapable of seeing
the coming crisis.

Twilight In The Desert: The Coming Saudi Oil Shock And The World Economy (e-Book)

Investment banker Simmons offers a detailed description of the relationship between Saudi
Arabia and the U.S and our long-standing dependence upon Saudi oil. With a field-by-field
assessment of its key oilfields, he highlights many discrepancies between Saudi Arabia's
actual production potential and its seemingly extravagant resource claims. Parts 1 and
2 of the book offer background and context for understanding the technical discussion of
Saudi oil fields and the world's energy supplies. Parts 3 and 4 contain analysis of Saudi
Arabia's oil and gas industry based on the technical papers published by the Society of
Petroleum Engineers. Simmons suggests that when Saudi Arabia and other Middle East
producers can no longer meet the world's enormous demand, world leaders and energy
specialists must be prepared for the consequences of increased scarcity and higher costs
of oil that support our modern society. Without authentication of the Saudi's production
sustainability claims, the author recommends review of this critical situation by an
international forum.

An Eyewitness History - 1960s (e-Book)

Whether they voted for Kennedy or not, most Americans were ready for a change in 1960.
From politics to the entertainment industry, both the country's leaders and followers
sought new directions, heroes, and missions. The postwar era had to come to an end sometime,
and the 1960s represented that transition. John F. Kennedy served as the first leader of
this uncharted path to the "New Frontier." From the end of racism and poverty to an American
on the moon, for a while it seemed that anything was possible.

The 1960s covers this explosive and exciting decade—from the cold war days of the Cuban
Missile Crisis to the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, and Martin
Luther King, Jr., to the Vietnam War; from the Beach Boys to the Beatles to the Rolling
Stones; from Hippies and Yippies to race riots and Kent State. In the words of Americans
who experienced the major events and issues of the decade, The 1960s presents the story
of one of America's most tumultuous historical periods.

Designed to pique the interests of the curious student and general reader, The 1960s offers
a basic narrative as well as an examination of the probing questions of the time. In the
format of the Eyewitness History series, the people of the time speak for themselves,
describing events as they saw them. Among those whose testimonies are given are Richard
M. Nixon, Sargent Shriver, Robert McNamara, James Meredith, Bill Cosby, Mary Wilson of
the Supremes, John Lennon, and Constance Baker Motley. The introductory section of each
chapter provides an overview of the history, and a chronology gives specific month-by-month
listings of each year's major events. In appendixes, readers gain access to excerpts of
important documents as well as brief biographies of leading personalities. A stunning
collection of photographs and images is spread throughout the volume, complementing the
engaging text.

An Eyewitness History - 1990s (e-Book)
A comprehensive resource for those interested in learning about this era, "The 1990s"
chronicles the first decade since the end of World War II to be dominated by a single
superpower - the United States - instead of by a cold war rivalry between heavily armed,
ideologically antithetical nuclear powers. From the still-evolving "new world order,"
involving new goals, alliances, and principles, to the changing demographic makeup,
values, beliefs, and practices of the United States, this volume explores the many factors
that have helped transform America's identity. Some of these evolutions led both to a
greater institutional tolerance of cultural diversity and to increased friction caused
by competing ways of life. This landmark decade also boasts record population growth. "The
1990s" provides complete coverage of this exciting era. "The 1990s", a new volume in "Facts
On File's" acclaimed "Eyewitness History" series, provides hundreds of first-hand accounts

Manufacturing Discontent: The Trap of Individualism in Corporate Society (e-Book)

Corporate power has a huge impact on the rights and privileges of individuals -– as workers,
consumers, and citizens. This book explores how the myth of individualism reinforces
corporate power by making people perceive themselves as having choices, when in fact most
peoples' options are very limited.

Perelman describes the manufacture of unhappiness - the continual generation of
dissatisfaction with products people are encouraged to purchase and quickly discard - and
the complex techniques corporations employ to avoid responsibility and accountability to
their workers, consumers and the environment. He outlines ways in which individuals can
surpass individualism and instead work together to check the growing power of corporations.

While other books have surveyed the corporate landscape, or decried modern consumerism,
Perelman, a professor of economics, places these ideas within a proper economic and
historical context. He explores the limits of corporate accountability and responsibility,
and investigates the relation between a wide range of phenomena such as food, fear and
terrorism.

Highly readable, Manufacturing Discontent will appeal to anyone with an interest in the
way society works - and what really determines the rights of individuals in a corporate
society.

The Psychology of Interrogations and Confessions: A Handbook (e-Book)

Wiley Series in Psychology of Crime, Policing and Law

False confessions do occur and no legal system can afford to deny that serious mistakes
have been, and will continue to be, made without radical change.

The impact of psychological research and expert testimony on legal changes, police practice
and legal judgements in England and Northern Ireland is unparalleled in the rest of the
world and valuable lessons have been learned as a result. A number of high profile murder
and terrorist convictions based largely on confession evidence have been quashed on appeal.
In The Psychology of Interrogations and Confessions, Gisli Gudjonsson traces the
scientific advances and relevant cases, many of which he was directly involved with, and
demonstrates their legal and psychological significance.

The Psychology of Interrogations and Confessions is a comprehensive and authoritative
handbook that demonstrates the crucial relationship between research and practice. In Part
I, interrogation tactics used by the police in the USA and Britain are reviewed and the
reasons why suspects confess to crimes are examined. In Part II, differences between
English and American legal systems are highlighted and the concepts of suggestibility,
compliance and acquiescence are discussed in detail, along with the effects of drugs and
alcohol. Twenty-two leading disputed confession cases are presented and evaluated in Part
III, showing how high court judges have become more sophisticated in the way they admit
and rely on expert psychological and psychiatric testimony. Part IV provides a detailed
discussion of seven high profile cases from outside Britain. They demonstrate how different
legal systems approach, view and evaluate disputed confession evidence and expert
testimony, providing material of international significance.

With its fascinating, detailed vignettes, The Psychology of Interrogations and Confessions
is essential reading for clinical and forensic psychologists and others in the legal,
psychological and psychiatric professions. Police officers will find many parts of the
book directly applicable to their work, as will social workers and probation officers.

Conjuring Hitler: How Britain and America Made the Third Reich (e-Book)

Fascinating and controversial new perspective on Hitler's rise to power; Provides
startling evidence of Britain and America's financial support for the Third Reich; Suggests
that the western elite deliberately supported Nazism in the pre-war period to destabilise
any alliance between Germany and Russia Nazism is usually depicted as an eerie German
phenomenon, the outcome of political blunders and unique economic factors: we are told
that it could not be prevented, and that it will never be repeated. Guido Giacomo Preparata
shows that the truth is very different: using meticulous economic analysis, he reveals
that Hitler's extraordinary rise to power was actually facilitated over the course of a
decade following WWI - and eventually financed - by the British and American political
classes. Tracing events in the Third Reich, Preparata offers a startling history of
Anglo-American geopolitical interests in the early twentieth century. He explains that
Britain, still clinging to its empire, was terrified of an alliance forming between Germany
and Russia. He shows how Britain, through the Bank of England, came to exercise some control
over Weimar and how Britain's financial support for Hitler enabled the Nazis to seize power.
Nazism was not regarded as an aberration: for the British establishment of the time, it
was a convenient way of destabilising Europe, and driving Germany into conflict with
Stalinist Russia. In this way Britain ensured that it would prevent the formation of any
rival continental power block. Guido Giacomo Preparata lays bare the economic forces at
play in the Third Reich, and identifies the key players in the British and American
establishment who aided Hitler's meteoric rise.

The West Bank Wall: Unmaking Palestine (Illustrated) (e-Book)

What is the purpose of the West Bank Wall? Since Israel began its construction in 2002,
it has sparked intense debate, being condemned as illegal by the International Court of
Justice. Israel claims it is a security measure to protect Israeli citizens from terrorist
attacks. Opponents point to the serious impact on the rights of Palestinians, depriving
them of their land, mobility and access to health and educational services.

In The West Bank Wall, Dolphin explores the Palestinian experience of the Wall and places
the debate in its international context. Dolphin's writing is informed by his work for
the UN, where for three years he monitored and compiled reports on the Wall's impact on
the humanitarian conditions in refugee camps, towns and villages. With an introduction
by Graham Usher, who has worked as Palestine correspondent for major international
publications including the Economist, Middle East International, al Ahram English Weekly,
the Guardian and Le Monde Diplomatique, this book puts the purpose of the Wall to the test.

What are the real intentions behind the Israeli security argument? Is it a means of securing
territory permanently through an illegal annexation of East Jerusalem? Ray Dolphin
provides some answers, offering a unique critical account of the impact of the wall and
how it affects plans for a Palestinian state and for future peace in the Middle East.

Imperial Israel and the Palestinians: The Politics of Expansion (e-Book)

In Imperial Israel and the Palestinians , Nur Masalha provides a history of Israel’s
expansionist policies, focusing on the period from the June War of 1967 to the present
day. He demonstrates that imperialist tendencies in Israel run the political gamut, from
Left to Right.

Masalha argues that the heart of the conflict between Zionist immigrants/settlers and the
native Palestinians has always been about land, territory, demography and water. He
documents how Israeli policy has made it a priority to expel the Palestinians, either by
war or peaceful measures. But these imperialist tendencies are not restricted to extremist
zealots. The author uncovers the expansionist policies found in Labour Zionism and Kookist
ideology. Chapters cover the Whole Land of Israel Movement, Zionist Revisionism and the
Likud Party, Gush Emunim and the religious fundamentalists, parties and movements of the
far right and the evolution of Israeli Jewish public attitudes since 1967.

Policing Dissent: Social Control and the Anti-Globalization Movement (Critical Issues in
Crime and Society) (e-Book)

In November 1999, fifty-thousand anti-globalization activists converged on Seattle to shut
down the World Trade Organization's Ministerial Meeting. Using innovative and
network-based strategies, the protesters left police flummoxed, desperately searching for
ways to control the crowds in Seattle and the emerging anti-corporate globalization
movement. Faced with these network-based tactics, law enforcement agencies transformed
their policing and social control mechanisms to manage this new threat.

In Policing Dissent, sociologist Luis A. Fernandez provides a firsthand account of the
changing nature of control efforts employed by local, state, and federal law enforcement
agencies when confronted with mass activism. Based on ethnographic research, and using
an incisive, cutting-edge theoretical framework, Fernandez maps the use of legal,
physical, and psychological approaches.

Policing Dissent also offers readers the richness of experiential detail and engaging
stories often lacking in studies of police practices and social movements. This book does
not merely seek to explain the causal relationship between repression and mobilization.
Rather, it shows how social control strategies act on the mind and body of protesters.

Melville's Bibles (e-Book)

Many writers in antebellum America sought to reinvent the Bible, but no one, Ilana Pardes
argues, was as insistent as Melville on redefining biblical exegesis while doing so. In
Moby-Dick he not only ventured to fashion a grand new inverted Bible in which biblical
rebels and outcasts assume center stage, but also aspired to comment on every imaginable
mode of biblical interpretation, calling for a radical reconsideration of the politics
of biblical reception. In Melville's Bibles, Pardes traces Melville's response to a whole
array of nineteenth-century exegetical writings--literary scriptures, biblical
scholarship, Holy Land travel narratives, political sermons, and women's bibles. She shows
how Melville raised with unparalleled verve the question of what counts as Bible and what
counts as interpretation.

Historical Dictionary of Sexspionage (e-Book)

n a surprising number of espionage cases sex has played a significant role—often only
in the background—possibly as a reason why a particular individual has lived beyond his
means and is in desperate need of cash. FBI agent Earl Pitts sold secrets to the Soviets
to ease his financial burdens, which came from his habitually heavy use of male and female
prostitutes. Yuri Nosenko collaborated with the CIA after having misappropriated KGB funds
to entertain expensive women while on official duties in Geneva, and Aleksandr Ogorodnik
of the Soviet foreign ministry was persuaded to become a spy by his pregnant Spanish lover,
an agent recruited by the CIA.

In the realm of human behavior, sex can be the catalyst for risky or reckless conduct.
The Historical Dictionary of Sexspionage explores this behavior through a chronology, an
introduction, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on the
secret agencies, operations, and events. From Delilah's seduction of Samson in 1161 BC
to State Department official Donald Keyser's conviction of passing secrets to Isabelle
Cheng, a Taiwanese intelligence officer, in 2007, Nigel West recounts the history of
sexspionage.

Enemy Combatants, Terrorism, and Armed Conflict Law: A Guide to the Issues (Contemporary
Military, Strategic, and Security Issues) (e-Book)

How do you strike the balance in opposing national security to individual liberties and
the rule of law, both internationally and domestically? *Beyond an individual liberties
perspective, what does this entail in institutional or structural terms? *How does this
tie into long-running changes in international law aspects, including legitimacy and the
use of armed force? With a renewed emphasis on national and homeland security, the United
States is once again seeking to balance the needs of the state with both the rights of
its citizens as well as those of other nations. This book represents an interdisciplinary
approach to the legal dilemmas borne out by the war on terror-against the specific
background of Afghanistan, Iraq, and this new kind of conflict. It is a strong contribution
to a broader debate visible since 9/11, which will remain in the public eye for the
foreseeable future. It addresses the overlap between religion, ethics, armed conflict,
and law, within the context of the current conflict. While many issues in areas such as
intelligence, reconciliation of civil liberties, dealing with terrorist threats, and the
permissible bounds of interrogation, treatment of prisoners and laws governing armed
conflict have long standing precedents under domestic and international law, this war has
challenged even long standing legal interpretations. The contributors to this volume
explore those precedents and contemporary challenges to them. Now that traditional wars
between nation states are no longer the rule, the terrorist threat has gained credence
(popularly, terrorism and its claimed breeding ground in failed states), linked in practice
to issues of intervention on the territory of states harboring such groups. In military
circles the idea of armed struggle between modern military forces and what were formerly
called guerillas has now largely been replaced by asymmetric warfare and the concept of
intelligence and preventive action interchangeably within U.S. borders and overseas.
Opposing views contemplate that different-and presumably lower-legal standards may apply
in internal armed conflicts. Such legal issues are visible under current circumstances
of asymmetric warfare in conjunction with questions about prisoner status and detentions,
including the permissible bounds of interrogation versus torture following the Abu Ghraib
prison scandal in Iraq but also the treatment at the Guantanamo Bay facility of alleged
Al Q'aeda captives from Afghanistan. All of the contributors in this book explore the
changing circumstances against which these contentious new legal issues now unfold. The
experts strike no consensus. Indeed, one of the work's many strengths can be attributed
to the fact that the many facets of the ongoing debate are represented herein.

The Origins of Violence: Religion, History and Genocide (e-Book)

From primatology to ancient Greece and Rome to the Bible, early-modern Europe and the
Enlightenment, Docker's profound and original analyses provide a deeply unsettling
narrative of the longevity of human practices of group violence. At the same time as The
Origins of Violence dethrones regnant frameworks of genocide studies that stress the role
of modernity or the state, and invites us to historicise genocide into the very longue
duree, it challenges us to recognise the uncomfortable truth that genocidal tendencies
remain tolerated, even celebrated, today - and not only in 'developing countries' -
whenever they cohere with states' self-images. A Gandhian plea for non-violence that
shockingly demonstrates the almost Sisyphean nature of the task.

This is a most interesting and disturbing book. To begin with, it displays a high level
of scholarship in its examination of the ways in which classical historical and literary
texts contain both a description and a moral critique of the ancient's world inter-group
violence. At the same time, it combines this analysis with a firm commitment to the modern,
humanist values of non-violence and internationalism.

Genocide is commonly understood to be a terrible aberration in human behaviour, performed
by evil, murderous regimes such as the Nazis and dictators like Suharto and Pinochet. John
Docker argues that the roots of genocide go far deeper into human nature than most people
realise.

Genocide features widely in the Bible, the literature of ancient Greece and Rome, and
debates about the Enlightenment. These texts are studied in depth to trace the origins
of violence through time and across civilisations. Developing the groundbreaking work of
Raphaël Lemkin, who invented the term 'genocide', Docker guides us from the dawn of
agricultural society, through classical civilisation to the present, showing that violence
between groups has been integral to all periods of history.

This revealing book will be of great interest to those wishing to understand the roots
of genocide and why it persists in the modern age.

Obama’s War

Iraq was George W. Bush’s war, but the conflict that now embroils both Afghanistan and
Pakistan is likely to become Barack Obama’s — a war to which he may commit 30,000 more
U.S. troops. Will the incoming soldiers be sucked into the “graveyard of empires,” as the
British and Soviets were before them? Or could Obama’s war eventually bring peace and

credit, which manifests itself in the credit default swap basis. Choudhry covers the
factors that drive the basis, implications for market participants, the CDS index basis,
and trading the basis.

Your Evil Twin: Behind the Identity Theft Epidemic (e-Book)

The crime of the twenty-first century doesn't discriminate: ID theft has hit ordinary
citizens and celebrities alike, from Oprah Winfrey to Steven Spielberg, and costs the
economy $50 billion a year. Your Evil Twin covers this exploding crime from every possible
angle. It includes exclusive whodunit details from mastermind identity thieves who have
pilfered money from half the members of the Forbes 400, as well as exclusive interviews
with a myriad of criminals in the Internet's underground, such as Russian hackers who have
extorted money from U.S. banks. The book also issues a scathing indictment of the credit
granting industry, from credit card issuers to the secretive credit reporting agencies,
who have misunderstood the crime from the start, have been slow to respond, and bear much
of the responsibility for the epidemic. Finally, Bob Sullivan, author and identity theft
expert, probes the tepid solutions now being cobbled together by the industry and
government.

A Brief History of Christianity (e-Book)

Blackwell Brief Histories of Religion

There is much to praise here. Lindberg manages to explore many key events, issues, people
and developments in a very concise manner. The text is very strong on theology and
institutions with helpful historical context. I particularly appreciated the attention
to Roman Catholicism as well as Protestantism in the modern period. The book is brief,
but the history of Christianity is vividly portrayed here in all of its drama and
complexity.

This is a wonderful book: accessible, concise, clearly written, and thoroughly absorbing.
Lindberg has chosen to present the Christian tradition through the history of its principal
ideas, but these ideas are grounded in the flesh-and-blood reality of persons, their
struggles for faith and for power, and the social and political worlds they inhabited.
Reflecting the author's erudition and wit, this cogent distillation of a complex past will
serve beginners as an ideal introduction and old hands as a thought-provoking synthesis.

Central Banks As Economic Institutions (e-Book)

The Cournot Centre for Economic Studies Series
The number of central banks in the world is approaching 180, a tenfold increase since the
beginning of the twentieth century. What lies behind the spread of this economic
institution? What underlying process has brought central banks to hold such a key role
in economic life today? This book examines from a transatlantic perspective how the central
bank has become the bank of banks. Thirteen distinguished economists and central bankers
have been brought together to evaluate how central banks function, arrive at their
policies, choose their instruments and gauge their success in managing economies, both
in times of crisis and periods of growth.Central banks have sought greater independence
from government control over the last 20 years. This widespread quest throws up new
questions regarding the foundations, prerogatives and future of this economic institution,
which are analysed here. This book provides a better understanding of the current financial
crisis through the in-depth study of the central bank. Researchers in the fields of monetary
theory, monetary policy and central banking will find this volume of great interest. It
will also appeal to students of economics, political economy, banking and finance, as well
as economists, academics, and public policy advisers and analysts.

Depression, War, and Cold War: Studies in Political Economy (e-Book)

A reading of the distressingly true facts and arguments in these essays raises fundamental
questions as to what can be done: how to find and apply the necessary correctives to the
popular and scholarly willingness to remain emotionally invested in erroneous
explanations, and how to avoid responding to social and economic problems by waging
destructive war. This most recent addition to Robert Higg's body of work is an invaluable
guide in that further quest.

Depression, War, and Cold War...is one of those rare offerings that explicates the truth
of things related to the inimical conflation of government, the military, and our
congressional banditti these past seventy years or so.... It is a book that reveals a
singular and important element of the derailment of our culture: where human nature has

India: The Emerging Giant (e-Book)
If there is one book which has been published in recent times that discusses the Indian
economy in all its aspects with such clear-mindedness, surely it is Panagaria's India:
The Emerging Giant.... What makes this work so absorbing can be attributed to three factors:
one, it is objective, two, it is reader-friendly, in the sense [that] it is largely free
of technical jargon and is easily understood by the layman, and three, it is
well-researched.... What is encouraging about this work is that it is highly optimistic
about India's economic future.

Corporate Retirement Security: Social and Ethical Issues (e-Book)

Leeds School Series on Business and Society

How are workers in the United States to secure sufficient funds to make possible a
retirement income that is in some essential way consistent with their expectations and
their lifetime of achievements? Public policy debate over the topic of corporate retirement
– a complex and hotly contested aspect of the larger U.S. retirement income system –
continues to illustrate U.S. society’s widespread disagreement over the most fundamental
facets of employment in general.

Contributors to this timely volume, edited by renowned business ethicist Robert W. Kolb,
embrace a wide range of backgrounds: from business scholars and ethicists, philosophers,
attorneys, and business consultants to corporations struggling with the problems of
managing their retirement programs in an era of rapid change. The articles, all of which
were written for this volume, offer diverse perspectives at the core of the very real issues
involved in the employer–employee relationship, central to the social organization of work
and the enjoyment of a comfortable and meaningful retirement.

Report of the Eminent Jurists Panel on Terrorism, Counter-terrorism and Human Rights

Assessing Damage, Urging Action

Leading Jurists Call for Urgent Steps to Restore Human Rights in efforts to counter
terrorism

In one of the most extensive studies of counter-terrorism and human rights yet undertaken,
an independent panel of eminent judges and lawyers today presents alarming findings about
the impact of counter-terrorism policies worldwide and calls for remedial action. The
Eminent Jurists Panel on Terrorism, Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights, established by
the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), has based its report "Assessing Damage,
Urging Action" on sixteen hearings covering more than forty countries in all regions of
the world.

International jurists bewail damage to law by U.S. war on terrorism

By Nick Cumming-Bruce
The U.S. war on terror has done "immense damage" to international law, lacks a credible
legal basis and should be repudiated by the administration of President Barack Obama, a
panel of eminent judges and lawyers said Monday.

The panel, organized by the International Commission of Jurists, a nongovernmental human
rights group, also criticized the culture of secrecy associated with the violation of
international laws, which it said afforded impunity to those acting unlawfully.

The report also said abuses were becoming pervasive in democratic as well as repressive
states.

The panel based its assessment on a three-year study of terrorism and counterterrorism
practices on behalf of the commission that took evidence from hundreds of witnesses in
40 countries. The chairman, Arthur Chaskalson, a former chief justice of South Africa,
described the report as "the most extensive study of these issues yet conducted."

The "war paradigm" adopted by the administration of former President George W. Bush to
combat terrorism after 9/11 "has done immense damage in the last seven years to a previously
shared international consensus on the framework underlying both human rights and
humanitarian law," the report said. "This consensus needs to be recreated and reasserted."

"Guantánamo Bay, renditions, military tribunals and secrecy surrounding what has been
done" were emblematic of the damage done, Chaskalson said at a news conference.

The panel found it "particularly disturbing to learn in many hearings" that governments
in other parts of the world are justifying their own wrongdoing by comparisons with the
United States, the report says.

The panel recognized the threat posed by terrorism and that states have a legal duty
reinforced by UN resolutions to protect their citizens. But their actions must be in
accordance with the requirements of international law, Chaskalson said. "Otherwise they
become lawbreakers" with serious consequences for their own societies and international
order, he said.

Panel members presented their findings at the start of a series of meetings in Europe and
the United States to call for international action to repair and reassert the international
consensus behind international laws on war and human rights.

State of the Dream 2009: The Silent Depression

In this year’s report for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, we found that people of color are
experiencing a silent economic depression. It’s silent because it’s going unnoticed,
unacknowledged and unaddressed – and yet the evidence is striking.

While the general population has been in recession for one year, people of color have been
in recession for five years. By definition, a long-term recession is a depression.

We detail additional evidence that shows the current racial economic inequity, including
poverty rates, wealth and assets and economic mobility. While racial barriers did not
prevent an African-American from becoming President, they continue to impede many people
of color from achieving the same economic success as their white counterparts.
