    In recent years, there has been a strong movement in Latin America for governments to regulate working conditions of child labor. On July 2, 2014, Bolivia passed legislation to allow children to work as young as age 10. This action put Bolivia in violation of the UN Conventions regulating child labor and was strongly condemned by human rights advocacy groups. “In Child Labor – Legalize? Or Outlaw?” The author describes the child labor movement in Latin America and points out the challenge that many children have to work illegally to survive. They do not have the luxury of waiting for a “perfect” solution. Although regulations on the working conditions of child labor can protect child workers by law, it is not an effective solution on the ground. A better policy will be to protect the child workers legally while also providing a “collaborative approach.” The author explores this alternative in her book.

    Cradle of Intrigue uses postwar Syria as a focal point to tell the story of how Egypt, Iraq, Turkey, and Jordan made Syria their target of conspiratorial plots as they sought to gain influence over Damascus. The book’s narrative challenges the notion of an omnipresent CIA and MI6, giving agency to local actors’ decisions to unseat governments and guide their own foreign policies. The Mosul Revolt, the 1957 October Crisis, and many more subversive schemes originated in Cairo, Baghdad, Ankara, and Amman. Sometimes these plots had American and British assistance or merely their consent, while at other times they plotted these conspiracies despite Washington and London’s fury. In short, not only the US and Great Britain used the coup d’état as a foreign policy tool. Syria, from its birth, became a haven for foreign conspiracy as its regional rivals sought to win influence in the coveted Arab capital of Damascus..
