Read Walter Hixson’s Review

In this in-depth account, anthropologist David Vine illuminates the role of military bases in fueling a largely unbroken history of American global intervention. The book is a sweeping indictment of the nation’s heavily militarized foreign policy, including the nearly incalculable costs, financial as well as moral, that have been exacted both at home and abroad.

The United States of Warimmediately becomes the definitive account of the history of U.S. overseas bases and their role in the history of American militarism.

Author Diana Darke was inspired to write Stealing From the Saracens after the fire at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. “I suddenly realized that most of the world simply does not understand the back-story of European architecture,” she stated.

Archive Wars offers unprecedented archival and on-the-ground research that traces the politics of history formation in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, from its establishment up to the present. Focusing first on efforts to create a national archive and then on the implication of urban space, author Rosie Bsheer offers a plethora of new information on the mechanics of Saudi politics.

 

Capturing Jonathan Pollard is recommended reading for those looking for the grubby details of Israel’s massive theft of U.S. secrets, and for an Israel that looked out for its own interests without a care for the interests of its patron and ally, the United States.

Jonathan Pollard’s parole recently expired, and he was permitted to move to Israel.
