The War Comes Home is the first book to systematically document the U.S. governments neglect of soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Aaron Glantz, who reported extensively from Iraq during the first three years of this war and has been reporting on the plight of veterans ever since, levels a devastating indictment against the Bush administration for its bald neglect of soldiers and its disingenuous reneging on their benefits. Glantz interviewed more than one hundred recent war veterans, and here he intersperses their haunting first-person accounts with investigations into specific concerns, such as the scandal at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. This timely book does more than provide us with a personal connection to those whose service has cost them so dearly. It compels us to confront how America treats its veterans and to consider what kind of nation deifies its soldiers and then casts them off as damaged goods.

Herbert Spencer (1820-1903) is remembered today only as an alleged ?Social Darwinist who applied the theory of the survival of the fittest to society.? Yet he was among the most influential and widely-read philosophers of the nineteenth century.? There were few Victorian thinkers and scientists who did not know his work, and who did not formulate their own positions partly in reaction to his.? Michael Taylors book provides the only detailed and reliable modern survey of the whole corpus of Spencers thought.? Taylor introduces a Spencer very different to his posthumous reputation: not primarily a political philosopher, but the architect of a comprehensive philosophical system that aimed to demonstrate the inevitability of human perfection through universal natural laws.? He also locates the Synthetic Philosophy firmly in its place and time by showing how it developed out of the concerns of a group of like-minded British writers and thinkers during the 1850s. This book will be of interest to historians of philosophy and of science, to social scientists, to scholars and students of nineteenth century literature, and to anyone who wishes to understand one of most important figures in Victorian intellectual life.
Why is the international community so concerned with the fate of prostitutes? And why does the story of trafficking sound so familiar? In this pioneering work, Jo Doezema argues that the current concern with trafficking in women is a modern manifestation of the myth of white slavery. Combining historical analysis with contemporary investigation, Sex Slaves and Discourse Masters examines in detail sex worker reactions to the myth of trafficking, questions the current feminist preoccupation with the suffering female body and argues that feminism needs to move towards the creation of new myths. The analysis in this book is controversial but crucial, an alternative to the current panic discourses around trafficking in women.
