    [ Available as Turning Fear into Power. Fall 2022 re-released as AFghanistan & Beyond. Text is the same in both books.]

    In the wake of the 9-11 attacks in 2001, Linda Sartor was dismayed to see her country responding primarily with military action and coercive diplomacy. Rather than isolating and defeating the perpetrators, Linda saw US action punishing the innocents in foreign lands, lending credibility to Al Qaeda's depiction of the US as an imperial state and an enemy of Islam, making enemies, and undercutting decades of effort to win the hearts and minds of people around the world.


    Linda resolved to do more than complain. For the next decade she engaged in self-styled citizen diplomacy, traveling to six war-torn countries to see for herself, and to do what she could to assist locals in their efforts to attain peace and justice.

    Linda traveled to Israel/Palestine, Iraq, Sri Lanka, Iran, Afghanistan, and Bahrain. She traveled with several different Peace and Justice organizations. And part of her story is the work of Americans and internationals to highlight injustice and to make some noise about the need for peace.

    Linda Sartor takes us behind the headlines, and she also isolates the idealism of activists from the US and other countries. She hopes that her stories will inspire readers to confront fear, to follow their hearts, and to place a bet that individual protest will, ultimately, undermine and reform the harsh imperial and economic systems that are too often accepted as a baseline "reality" when the nations of the world exercise power.

    A dispatch from the front lines of the world's most pressing humanitarian crisis. Meet the children, women, and men who have given up untenable lives in Syrian conflict zones for the risk of travel as refugees, to Greece. 

    Editors Bill Dienst, MD and Madi Williamson and their contributors—most of whom have served on the ground with the ngo SCM Medical Missions—report from the refugee camps of Greece on the crisis of refugees, primarily Syrian refugees, who have fled the violence and are now caught in military style detention camps with no end in sight.
