Shake Hands With The Devil The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda

Shake Hands With The Devil The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda Lowest used price: $0.41
Author: Romeo Dallaire

The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda was written with a view to leaving a document for the General's children for them to try and understand why the father they saw leave for a UN mission in 1993 and the soldier who returned in August, 1994 was not the same father. As the book developed it became a personal record of the genocide of over 800,000 souls (both Tutsi and Hutu) and was dedicated to the Rwandans, abandoned to their fate, who were slaughtered in the hundreds of thousands, to the fourteen UN soldiers under his command who died bravely in the service of peace and humanity and to his researcher, who died while working so hard to tell the story.

Dead Heat: Global Justice and Global Warming Lowest new price: $1.92
Lowest used price: $0.01
List price: $11.95
Author: Tom Athanasiou
Brand: Brand: Seven Stories Press

Today's "extreme weather events" (record-breaking heat waves, droughts, and melting ice caps) foreshadow an increasingly unstable and dire future. Yet, despite all, the US government continues to reject the Kyoto Protocol, to deny the catastrophic consequences of oil dependency, and to define the politics of oil as the politics of U.S. unilateralism, domination, and war.
Dead Heat argues that justice—not rhetoric and "aid" but real developmental justice for the people of developing world—is going to be necessary, and surprisingly soon. It argues, more particularly, that such a justice must involve a phased transition from the Kyoto Protocol to a new climate treaty based on equal human rights to emit greenhouse pollutants. Dead Heat makes the case for climate justice, but insists that justice and equity, for all their manifold ethical and humanitarian attractions, must also be seen as the most "realistic" of virtues. It insists, in other words, that our limited environmental space will itself show that it is the dream of a "business as usual" future that is naïve and utopian.

North Korea/South Korea: U.S. Policy at a Time of Crisis (Open Media Books)

North Korea/South Korea: U.S. Policy at a Time of Crisis (Open Media Books) Lowest new price: $0.98
Lowest used price: $0.01
List price: $9.95
Author: John Feffer

The Korean peninsula, divided for more than fifty years, is stuck in a time warp. Millions of troops face one another along the Demilitarized Zone separating communist North Korea and capitalist South Korea. In the early 1990s and again in 2002-2003, the United States and its allies have gone to the brink of war with North Korea. Misinterpretations and misunderstandings are fueling the crisis. "There is no country of comparable significance concerning which so many people are ignorant," American anthropologist Cornelius Osgood said of Korea some time ago. This ignorance may soon have fatal consequences.
North Korea, South Korea is a short, accessible book about the history and political complexites of the Korean peninsula, one that explores practical alternatives to the current US policy: alternatives that build on the remarkable and historic path of reconciliation that North and South embarked on in the 1990s and that point the way to eventual reunification.

Colombia and the United States : War, Unrest, and Destabilization (Open Media Series)

Colombia and the United States : War, Unrest, and Destabilization (Open Media Series) Lowest new price: $2.90
Lowest used price: $0.01
List price: $10.95
Author: Mario A. Murillo

Every year the United States spends millions of dollars to help the war-ravaged country of Colombia. But help it with what? In Colombia and the U.S. Mario Murillo explores the misdirected and devastating impact that U.S. military "aid" continues to have on the war torn-people of Colombia. Beginning with a brief history of Colombia, Murillo analyzes the complex forces driving Colombia's current decades-old guerilla war, U.S. involvement, media perceptions, and possible paths to peace. Whether it has been the U.S.-led war against "drug trafficking," the newly constituted "war against terrorism," or, as we have seen over the last two years, a convenient marriage of the two, the main effect has been to allow the U.S. to further expand its role in Colombia. The foundations of Colombia's social, political, and military conflict are rarely addressed by U.S. policy. Murillo describes Colombia's history of institutionalized corruption, state neglect, far-reaching poverty, and political violence and how they precede by decades the introduction and expansion of the drug trade.
Colombia and the U.S. argues that the conflict in Colombia is not about drugs, nor guerrillas, nor "terrorism," but rather about the unwillingness of the country's elite to open up spaces for truly democratic participation in areas of economic and social development and political representation.

ISLAMIC ANTI-SEMITISM AS A POLITICAL INSTRUMENT

By Yossef Bodansky

Anti-Semitism, that is, anti-Jewishness and anti-Judaism, is intensifying throughout the Muslim World. The significance of this virulent anti-Jewishness and anti-Judaism is in that this type of anti-Semitism goes beyond the hatred it espouses. In the contemporary Muslim World, anti-Jewishness and anti-Judaism constitute a major political instrument in the hands of both state governments and Islamist terrorist organizations to mobilize the entire region for the destruction of Israel - irrespective of diplomatic treaties, including the current peace process.

Virtually any commodity can move around the world to satisfy demand, but human beings have far less freedom. Many would-be migrants are forced to risk life and limb traveling illegally. Yet most rich countries are short of workers, have shrinking populations, and need more immigrants. This is a timely guide to a major issue that is never far from the political headlines.

Peter Stalker is a former co-editor of the New Internationalist who now works as a consultant to a number of UN agencies. He has written two books on migration for the International Labor Organization.
