NO LAND AN ISLAND
NO PEOPLE APART
From internationalist and nonpartisan progressive, author of “Same Ole or Something New” and “BREAKDOWN,” comes another thought-provoking work NO LAND AN ISLAND NO PEOPLE APART challenging readers to face the “callously immoral, lawless, relentlessly regressive model in U.S. foreign relations”; and embrace an authentic progressivism.
“This book is unconcerned with political figures per se (or their parties),” Bennett says, “but rather with a malignant system maintained by a parade of tentacled regimes whose official (elected) base of operation begins in the capital of the United States, a system that is seemingly endorsed by the people of the United States.” The author maintains that the United States has created and entrenched a narrow worldview, espousing an attitude that all land and peoples belong to America to use and abuse, to pillage and plunder.
In this work, Dr. Carolyn LaDelle Bennett takes a second look at U.S. relations with Afghanistan and Pakistan, Iran and Iraq, Bahrain and Yemen, Libya and Somalia; and sees a continuing BREAKDOWN that worsens in act and consequence. She then presents her own ideas and worldview; and a challenge to embrace a nonviolent, transformative, inclusive progressivism imbued with a sense of global society, a sensibility that inspires constructive, continuous forward movement.
Bold and daring, NO LAND AN ISLAND NO PEOPLE APART is an educator’s guide, a philosopher’s critique, a news writer’s eye, an internationalist’s sensibility chronicling U.S. foreign relations violence and the human costs—East Africa crossing the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden into Persia, the Middle East, South Central Asia.
