Obama May Follow Bush's Foreign Policy

Chicago Sun Times picks 'A Thousand Hills'
as one of the Best Books of 2008
"For a sheer, eye-opening revelation of what's been going on in another part of the world, Stephen Kinzer's "A Thousand Hills: Rwanda's Rebirth and the Man Who Dreamed It" packs a lot into its 380 pages. Kinzer, a former New York Times foreign correspondent who has worked in more than 50 countries, tells the story of Rwanda's new leader, Paul Kagame, who is trying to turn a nation ravaged by ethnic killing into the star of Africa."


Spreading the Word

 As part of its campaign against US intervention in Iran, Just Foreign Policy has sent every member of Congress a copy of "All the Shah's Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror." Two JFP organizers, Sarah Burns and Chelsea Mozen, packed each book with a letter from Rep. James McGovern recommending it.
