Antonin Baudry (aka Abel Lanzac) - Weapons of Mass Diplomacy
Politics and Prose, Friday, August 22 at 7pm
A huge hit in Europe, this is the French perspective on Bush, Powell, Rice, and the whole rush to destroy Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction before they were even found. Working with the award-winning artist Christophe Blain, Baudry, the diplomat and former advisor to French Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin—writing as Abel Lanzac—recounts recent history in this graphic, satirical account of a speechwriter very much like himself, caught in the international crisis of post-9/11 confusions.

Gary J. Bass - The Blood Telegram
Politics and Prose, Monday, August 25 at 7pm
Nixon’s White House tapes offer insight into more than just Watergate, and Bass, a Princeton professor of politics, has mined them for the story of the U.S. role in the bloody birth of Bangladesh in 1971. Calling the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Hindus a “forgotten genocide,” Bass shows in detail how Nixon and Kissinger supported Pakistan’s brutal military dictatorship in the battle with India over what was then East Pakistan.

Maxwell Neely-Cohen - Echo of the Boom
Politics and Prose, Tuesday, August 26 at 7pm
The four D.C. teens at the center of Neely-Cohen’s debut novel live in the bubble moment between the Cold War and the war on terror. Surrounded by technology and immersed in pop culture, these characters nonetheless feel a rising tension in the air; as the section epigraphs from Revelation suggest, something big is about to change the world.
