In the name of democracy : American war crimes in Iraq and beyond by Brendan Smith( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A riveting documentary anthology that examines a deeply disturbing question: Is the United States guilty of war crimes in Iraq' Until recently, the possibility that the United States was responsible for war crimes seemed unthinkable to most Americans. But as previously suppressed information has started to emerge'photographs from Abu Ghraib; accounts of U.S. attacks on Iraqi hospitals, mosques, and residential neighborhoods; secret government reports defending unilateral aggression'Americans have begun an agonizing reappraisal of the Iraq war and the way in which their government has conducted it. Drawing on a wide range of documents'from the protocols of the Geneva Convention to FBI e-mails about prisoners held in GuantAnamo Bay to executive-branch papers justifying the circumvention of international law'In the Name of Democracy examines the legality of the Iraq war and the occupation that followed. Included in this powerful investigation are eyewitness accounts, victim testimonials, statements by soldiers turned resisters and whistle-blowers, interviews with intelligence insiders, and contributions by Mark Danner and Seymour Hersh. The result is a controversial, chilling anthology that explores the culpability of officials as well as the responsibilities of ordinary citizens, and for the first time squarely confronts the matter of American impunity

Save the humans? : common preservation in action by Jeremy Brecher( Book )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2020 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today our individual self-interest depends on what the author calls common preservation--cooperation to provide for mutual well-being. But is that possible? As world leaders fail to cooperate to address climate change, nuclear proliferation, economic meltdown, and other threats to our survival, more and more people experience a pervasive sense of denial and despair. But common preservation can reshape the human future. Jeremy Brecher has seen common preservation in action, and in Save the Humans? he shows how it works. From Gandhi's civil disobedience campaigns in India, to the Solidarity movement that initiated the end of Communism in Eastern Europe, to the 2011 uprisings throughout the Middle East and in the U.S. Middle West as well, Brecher shows what we can learn from the history of past social movements to help us confront today's global threats of climate change, war and domination, and economic chaos" --Amazon.com
