As Eve Ensler says in her inspired foreword to this book, "Jody Williams is many things—a simple girl from Vermont, a sister of a disabled brother, a loving wife, an intense character full of fury and mischief, a great strategist, an excellent organizer, a brave and relentless advocate, and a Nobel Peace Prize winner. But to me Jody Williams is, first and foremost, an activist." From her modest beginnings to becoming the tenth woman—and third American woman—to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, Jody Williams takes the reader through the ups and downs of her tumultuous and remarkable life. In a voice that is at once candid, straightforward, and intimate, Williams describes her Catholic roots, her first step on a long road to standing up to bullies with the defense of her deaf brother Stephen, her transformation from good girl to college hippie at the University of Vermont, and her protest of the war in Vietnam. She relates how, in 1981, she began her lifelong dedication to global activism as she battled to stop the U.S.-backed war in El Salvador. Throughout the memoir, Williams underlines her belief that an "average woman"—through perseverance, courage and imagination—can make something extraordinary happen. She tells how, when asked if she’d start a campaign to ban and clear anti-personnel mines, she took up the challenge, and the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) was born. Her engrossing account of the genesis and evolution of the campaign, culminating in 1997 with the Nobel Peace Prize, vividly demonstrates how one woman’s commitment to freedom, self-determination, and human rights can have a profound impact on people all over the globe.

London 1945: the heir apparent to the largest tribe of Bechuanaland (later Botswana) arrives in Britain to complete his legal studies. Seretse Khama, an urbane 24 year old, educated like Mandela at Fort Hare, was welcomed into the elite world of Oxford. But when he fell in love with Englishwoman Ruth Williams the full force of colonial power was brought to bear to prevent their marriage. Using newly released records Colour Bar recounts a shameful period in British history, of overt racism on the streets of London and the corridors of Whitehall, of appeasement to apartheid South Africa and triumphantly the determination of the Bangwato people whose loyalty finally brought Seretse and Ruth back to their rightful home where together they created the foundations for what has become a uniquely successful African state.

"Slavery is illegal throughout the world, yet more than twenty-seven million people are still trapped in one of history's oldest social institutions. Kevin Bale's disturbing story of slavery today reaches from brick kilns in Pakistan and brothels in Thailand to the offices of multinational corporations and beyond. The current slaves are not a long-term investment as was true with older forms of slavery, explains Bales. Instead they are cheap, require little care, and are disposable. This edition is updated with a stunning new preface that traces the changes in global slavery and abolition since the book was first published over ten years ago."--Back cover.
