The essays are placed in historical and intellectual context by a substantial new introduction outlining the developments in Keohane's thought, and in an original afterword, the author offers a challenging interpretation of the September 11th attacks and their aftermath. Undoubtedly, this book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in international relations.
From the acclaimed author of Bilal's Bread comes this unflinching portrait of an American-Thai young man struggling with his sexual identity. Isa is the product of a GI from Kansas City and a prostitute mother, and Thai society can be cruel to those not of pure breeding-they are called "bird-shit" foreigners. Tossed out by his family, the struggling gay teen learns to live on the street with a local gang before ultimately finding refuge with a local clergyman and his family. Beautifully written, evocative of setting, here is fiction that truly touches the heart.
