When Barack Obama entered the White House, he followed a long-standing precedent for the development and implementation of major policies by appointing administrators—so-called policy czars—charged with directing the response to the nation’s most pressing crises. Demonstrating that the creation of policy czars is a strategy for combating partisan polarization and navigating the federal government’s complexity, Vaughn and Villalobos offer a sober, empirical analysis of what precisely constitutes a czar and what role they have played in the modern presidency.

From its largest cities to deep within its heartland, from its heavily trafficked airways to its meandering country byways, America has become a nation racked by anxiety about terrorism and national security. In response to the fears prompted by the tragedy of September 11th, the country has changed in countless ways. Airline security has tightened, mail service is closely examined, and restrictions on civil liberties are more readily imposed by the government and accepted by a wary public. The altered American landscape, however, includes more than security measures and ID cards. The country's desperate quest for security is visible in many less obvious, yet more insidious ways. In Scapegoats of September 11th, criminologist Michael Welch argues that the "war on terror" is a political charade that delivers illusory comfort, stokes fear, and produces scapegoats used as emotional relief. Regrettably, much of the outrage that resulted from 9/11 has been targeted at those not involved in the attacks on the Pentagon or the Twin Towers. As this book explains, those people have become the scapegoats of September 11th. Welch takes on the uneasy task of sorting out the various manifestations of displaced aggression, most notably the hate crimes and state crimes that have become embarrassing hallmarks both at home and abroad.Drawing on topics such as ethnic profiling, the Abu Ghraib scandal, Guantanamo Bay, and the controversial Patriot Act, Welch looks at the significance of knowledge, language, and emotion in a post-9/11 world. In the face of popular and political cheerleading in the war on terror, this book presents a careful and sober assessment, reminding us that sound counterterrorism policies must rise above, rather than participate in, the propagation of bigotry and victimization. Michael Welch is a professor of criminal justice at Rutgers University. He is the author of numerous books including Ironies of Imprisonment and Detained: Immigration Laws and the Expanding INS Jail Complex.

This book examines the impact of the National Security Act of 1947, the most important foreign policy legislation that many Americans (including policymakers and academics) have never heard of. • Surveys U.S. foreign policy in the Cold War and post-Cold War eras through the careful and consistent evaluation of 14 case studies • Examines the National Security Act of 1947 (and subsequent amendments) and its main creations that have propelled the United States into being the interventionist nation it is today • Makes connections between the policymakers involved in the Cold War consensus (both in the White House National Security Counsel and on Capitol Hill) in the late 1940s and those of today's era

تنبه روبرت ينغ بيلتون إلى ظاهرة الجنود المستأجرين في الحرب على الإرهاب حين قابل فريقاً من المتعاقدين الأمنيين الذين كانوا يقومون بمهمة سرية على الحدود الباكستانية الأفغانية في خريف عام 2003؛ فعقد بيلتون عزمه على القيام برحلة ملحمية طويلة للولوج في هذا العالم الغامض وكشف أسراره، ليرجع إلينا بفهم مذهل لطريقة استخدام الجنود الخصوصيين. فتعال معنا لتستكشف عالماً ملطخاً بالدماء من الجنود المرتزقة والمقاتلين القبليين من جنوب إفريقية، تموله طغمة غاشمة من أرباب المال. توقف في المنطقة الخضراء في بغداد، والبس درعك الواقية من الرصاص وضع خوذتك على رأسك؛ لكي ترافق فريقاً من المتعاقدين الأمنيين وهم يسيرون بسرعة عالية، وينعطفون بشدة تجنباً للسيارات الملغمة ونيران القناصة وهم في طريقهم لإيصال عملائهم إلى المطار. شارك أصحاب الجيوش الخاصة الأثرياء كأساً من الراح في أحد الفنادق الفخمة، وهم يناقشون أفضل سبل المحافظة على الحياة في مناطق الحرب. امتدت رحلة هذا الكتاب فوق أربع قارات، واستغرقت على مدى ثلاث سنوات، لتأخذنا إلى داخل الحروب القذرة للسي آي إيه؛ وإلى القتل العنيف الذي لقيه المتعاقدون الأمنييون في الفلوجة، إلى الحصار الذي فرض عليهم في النجف والكوت؛ إلى معسكرات تدريب المتعاقدين في جنوب الولايات المتحدة، حيث يتلقى الجنود السابقون من العمليات الخاصة وحتى أفراد الشرطة في المدن الصغيرة تدريباتهم الأساسية في هذا الحقل؛ إلى مؤتمرات ومعارض المتعاقدين حيث يتبادل الحضور قصص مغامراتهم العسكرية وينقاشون مهماتهم القادمة؛ إلى السجون الكئيبة في وسط إفريقية، حيث دفع متعاقدون أمنيّون تحولوا إلى جنود مرتزقة فيها ثمناً باهظاً لقيامهم بمحاولات انقلاب كان مصيرها الإخفاق. لقد شجعت الولايات المتحدة استخدام القطاع الخاص في كل نواحي الحرب على الإرهاب، واضعة المتعاقدين خارج نطاق القانون وقيوده، وبوضوح مذهل لا يتأتى إلا بمعاينة مباشرة، يحلل لنا هذا الكتاب بدقة عالية اللاعبين الأساسيين؛ ولعل أكثر ما يثير القلق في هذا الكتاب هو أنه كشف عن وجود آلاف من المتعاقدين الأمنيين– إضافة إلى مئات غيرهم يدخلون هذا القطاع كل يوم- يحملون رخصة بالقتل، ويعرضون خدماتهم لمن يدفع الثمن الأعلى. العبيكان للنشر
