George Szamuely, Ph.D., is senior research fellow at the Global Policy Institute in London and author of Bombs for Peace: NATO’s Humanitarian War on Yugoslavia (2014).

International Injustice: Humanitarian Intervention and the Abuse of War Crimes Trials is a critical examination of Western military humanitarian interventions, with a particular focus on subsequent Western-organized war crimes trials that serve as post-facto justifications for the resort to force. International Injustice analyzes the NATO-led humanitarian intervention in Yugoslavia during the 1990s, an intervention that to this day continues to be cited as a successful exemplar of how to use force to achieve humanitarian outcomes.

The Coming Woke Catastrophe: A Critical Examination of Woke Culture

Author: 

Heitzman, Chris

Credentials: 

Chris Heitzman has been a lawyer in private practice for the past 15 years and a keen observer of social and political affairs.

Widespread popular belief holds that woke culture, increasingly known as “wokeism,” is the great progressive awakening of our time. Its followers and proponents believe that their awakening is one of seeing a better world without discrimination, unfairness, or injustice. Those who refuse to subscribe to woke culture are seen as hateful people who must advocate the opposite of what woke culture claims to stand for. Increasingly anyone who questions the woke message is shouted down, de-platformed, and even cancelled. But is there something less attractive about woke thinking beneath the labels?

The Age of Foolishness: A Doubter’s Guide to Constitutionalism in a Modern Democracy

Author: 

Allan, James

Credentials: 

James Allan is the Garrick Professor in Law at the University of Queensland, in Australia. He has published in leading constitutional and legal philosophy law journals and writes for The Spectator, Australia, The Australian, Quadrant, Law & Liberty, The National Post, among others.

The Age of Foolishness is a doubter’s guide to current lawyerly thinking about all things related to constitutionalism in a democracy. This book offers a thorough-going skeptical critique of the views that dominate our legal caste, including in law schools and among judges, and place too much weight on judges to resolve important social policy disputes and too little on democratic politics. The author argues that politics matters in a way that our legal orthodoxy often downplays.

Author: 

Rose, Gary L., Ph.D.; Professor and Chair, Department of Government, Sacred Heart University

Credentials: 

Author of Haywire: A Chronology of the 2016 Presidential Contest (2017), No Holds Barred: The 2012 Connecticut Senate Race (2013), Shaping A Nation: Twenty-Five Supreme Court Cases That Changed the United States (2010), and Connecticut in Crisis: Policy Challenges and the 2018 Contest for Governor

Local government in the New England states has historically been regarded as a style of government that most closely embodies the spirit of American democracy. Although models of local government vary from one town to the next, the common thread which unites all New England towns is that the people are empowered to choose their own form of government, and in doing so control their own destiny.
