    SHAME

    I can only cringe at the standard policies of nonintervention that Powers clearly demonstrates and applaud the brave few who sacrificed to be heard. As a nation of vast resources, we owe something back to our global community. Furthermore, such action may have saved us from the difficult conflicts we face today. The international community must decide that the loss of any culture or people is devastating to all. We ALWAYS have a dog in this fight.

    Disurbing but necessary reading

    Samantha Power has written,in my opinion, an extremely important book. I was practically angered and dissapointed at the information this work asserted. Noninterventionism in the face of genocide should be unacceptable under any circumstance. Goood job Powers

    valid but outdated now

    The author brilliantly traced a long history of inaction on the part of American leaders in the face of genocide. But it is no longer accurate in view of the subsequent US military actions/invasions in Afghanistan and Iraq under the Bush Administration. One wonders whether this book was one of the cause of recent US interventionist policy as her indictment of US policy would have been read by US policy makers.

    A Book that needed to be written.

    In honour of those who suffer the least that can be done is to listen, or read. This book helps fulfill the human duty to know. Hopefully, I hope those who should read it will, and after becoming aware try to stop it in the future. The voice I wanted is in this book. It is a history journey that I hope touches the heart of our innocense to slaughter. I wish this could become a book taught in schools. There is a side to human nature that is automatic when people are in trouble, there are those who care. THIS BOOK SHOWS HOW NECESSARY THIS IS TO CARE I AM GRATEFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE READ IT

    Clear,concise coverage of why the US must learn and be active in foreign policy

    Did you know that Osama was operating in the Balkans war fighting Christains who were cleansing Muslims. Is this how he formed his view on the USA? This book discusses the issues of problems and how they ultimatley impact the USA and why every American should be actively interested in what happens in the world.
