Credentials: 

Author of Western Imaginings: The Intellectual Contest to Define Wahhabism

As the beating drums within the United States for a war with Iran grow louder, it is important, now more than ever, to understand precisely how and why neo-conservatives have chosen to orchestrate a sustained and coordinated campaign for a U.S. attack on Iran, or short of that, support an Israeli strike against the Islamic Republic's nuclear technology facilities. This campaign is aimed at convincing U.S.

Forbidden Knowledge: Things We Should Not Know

Author: 

Porter, Burton, Ph.D., University of Oxford

Credentials: 

Author of Finding Your Own Philosophy of Life and The Great Perhaps: God as Question and The Janus Face of Ideas: Which Way Should We Look?

In this book eminent philosopher Burton Porter examines the concept of “forbidden knowledge” in religion, science, government, and psychology. From the tree of knowledge in the Garden of Eden (forbidden fruit), to world altering scientific research (nuclear power, stem-cells, cloning) to damning government secrets (Abu Ghraib, domestic spying), to traumatic experiences that individuals want to repress (sexual abuse), humanity has encountered knowledge that has been hidden and suppressed.

Command Responsibility: Holding Military Leaders Accountable for their Troops (W. B. Sheridan Law Books)

Author: 

Whisker, James B., Professor Emeritus of Political Science, West Virginia University; Kevin R. Spiker, Associate Professor of Political Science, Ohio University

Command responsibility, or executive accountability, assumes that leaders are responsible for the actions of their subordinates. If subordinates misbehave, violate basic moral laws, transgress international law, or thwart international standards of behavior, their leader may be called before to justice. Standards that set the boundaries of human action have been evolving for many millennia, with some degree of precision arriving after the post-World War II international war crimes prosecutions.
