✏Iraq Then and Now Book Summary : Unlike other publications since the downfall of Saddam's regime, Iraq: Then & Now traces the history of the country from ancient times until the present. Supplementary boxes, many written by Iraqis themselves, reflect on life today as compared with life in Saddam's Iraq and even earlier, describing their experiences, hopes, fears, ambitions and visions for the future.The book self-consciously avoids making any judgement on the political debate surrounding the 2003 war and subsequent occupation; instead it presents the varying views, and offers a rounded, balanced picture.Published to coincide with the fifth anniversary of the change, this guide to the country and its people, provides information on Iraq's culture and archaeology, the south, Baghdad and the Sunni Triangle. The northern region of Iraqi Kurdistan stands apart as a success story and the travel appendix provides essential information for the increasing numbers of visitors to this region.

✏American Politics Then Now Book Summary : James Q. Wilson is one of America's preeminent public policy scholars. For decades, he has analyzed the changing political and cultural landscape with clarity and honesty, bringing his wisdom to bear on all facets of American government and society. This is a collection of fifteen of Wilson's most insightful essays-drawing on thirty years of his observations on religion, crime, the media, terrorism and extremism, and the old-fashioned notion of 'character.' Readers of every political persuasion will come away from this volume with a new understanding of how American politics and culture have evolved over the last half-century. These essays are not 'the grumpy words of a conservative who can't be reconciled to the realities of contemporary American life,' Wilson writes. Rather, they are straight talk from a painstaking empiricist and consummate social scientist who believes in American exceptionalism. American Politics, Then & Now is a compelling portrait of a beloved nation.

✏Revelation Book Summary : Revelation: unveiling end of time events is a book that both scholars and laymen must have. It discloses the roll that all the kingdoms of the world play in the "end": Russia, China, U.S.A, Iraq, Iran, Africa, Europe, and of course Israel. In this book, Dr. Simmons shows where we're headed and why; this book shows us what we should expect and when. It addresses such questions as: where is the most likely place the Antichrist will come from? Will the super powers still rule the world? Will the rapture occur before or after the tribulation period? Can we stop the process? And, why Israel will always be in war? Dr. Simmons shows that the Antichrist's world system is being designed right now, right under our noses, and that all the prophecies that Yeshua (Jesus) made about what will happened before the end, has already happened. He also shows, unlike many teach, that the battle of Armageddon is not the last battle. Every Believer must have this book. It was purposely designed for easy reading.

✏Genocide in Contemporary Children s and Young Adult Literature Book Summary : This book studies children’s and young adult literature of genocide since 1945, considering issues of representation and using postcolonial theory to provide both literary analysis and implications for educating the young. Many of the authors visited accurately and authentically portray the genocide about which they write; others perpetuate stereotypes or otherwise distort, demean, or oversimplify. In this focus on young people’s literature of specific genocides, Gangi profiles and critiques works on the Cambodian genocide (1975-1979); the Iraqi Kurds (1988); the Maya of Guatemala (1981-1983); Bosnia, Kosovo, and Srebrenica (1990s); Rwanda (1994); and Darfur (2003-present). In addition to critical analysis, each chapter also provides historical background based on the work of prominent genocide scholars. To conduct research for the book, Gangi traveled to Bosnia, engaged in conversation with young people from Rwanda, and spoke with scholars who had traveled to or lived in Guatemala and Cambodia. This book analyses the ways contemporary children, typically ages ten and up, are engaged in the study of genocide, and addresses the ways in which child survivors who have witnessed genocide are helped by literature that mirrors their experiences.

✏Empire of Liberty Book Summary : America is a force for good. American ideals are triumphing throughout the world, and yet opposition to those ideas is still there. From the various cells of radical Islamic fundamentals to various intellectual elites in Europe and even in the United States, America is still attacked with both words and bullet. Just ask yourself this, would the world be better if the United States was not active in world affairs? That is the heart of the debate. My view is simple. America is good for the world. Throughout the centuries, freedom has been the one entity continuously deprived. Jesus told us "Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's and unto the God the things that are God's." Jesus' message was straightforward, there are things that are the purview of God and man cannot interfere or deny. Christianity reminds us that there are matters even more important than ourselves and that even our rulers are under the power of God. Caesar may have his place, but it is to rule not dominate. Caesar can't be God. Indian author Gurcharau Das once observed that democracy is best in the hands of modest men. Modesty is a virtue for it is in modesty that individuals understand that there are limits to government and limits to what the courts can accomplish. Why conservatives believe in limited government is simple. The ability of government to solve all problems is impossible, and government is but one actor in society. Within the whole of society, many players interact from local businesses and local churches to local communities. Society is made of many parts and government is the legal vehicle to ensure that justice is for all. It is the vehicle to protect our right, not to abuse them. Government protects the freedom to worship, to speak out, to work and establish business. The hallmark of a conservative is modesty. Thomas Donelson

✏Book Title : Minority Rights in the Middle East

✏Minority Rights in the Middle East Book Summary : Within the Middle East there are a wide range of minority groups outside the mainstream religious and ethnic culture. This book provides a detailed examination of their rights as minorities within this region, and their changing status throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The rights of minorities in the Middle East are subject to a range of legal frameworks, having developed in part from Islamic law, and in recent years subject to international human rights law and institutional frameworks. The book examines the context in which minority rights operate within this conflicted region, investigating how minorities engage with (or are excluded from) various sites of power and how state practice in dealing with minorities (often ostensibly based on Islamic authority) intersects with and informs modern constitutionalism and international law. The book identifies who exactly can be classed as a minority group, analysing in detail the different religious and ethnic minorities across the region. The book also pays special attention to the plight of minorities who are spread between various states, often as the result of conflict. It assesses the applicable domestic legislative instruments within the three countries investigated as case studies: Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon, and highlights key domestic remedies that could serve as models for ensuring greater social cohesion and greater inclusion of minorities in the political life of these countries.
