Andrew Bacevich, author of “Diplomat in Khaki”, wrote an article featured in The Los Angeles Times supporting fellow UPK author and former Florida Senator Bob Graham’s decision to release a 28-page document that had been omitted from the 9/11 Commission’s official report. The document allegedly details Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the September 11 terrorist attacks.
Bacevich states, “Whether the 28 pages sustain or refute suspicions of Saudi involvement in the Sept. 11 attacks will remain impossible to say absent such executive action.”
The Los Angeles Times highlights the Mendez v. Westminster case as Philippa Strum, UPK author of “Mendez v. Westminster: School of Desegregation and Mexican-American Rights,” explores the important role Latinos play in the upcoming election. As Strum states, “In the coverage of the 2016 election cycle, you’ll hear this time and again: Latinos—immigrants and their families—are playing an important role in electing the next U.S. president. They are the largest minority group in the nation, and they are poised to make a major impact on American democracy.”
Much has been written about the forty-years following Saigon’s fall. Lewis Sorley, author of “Honorable Warrior: General Harold K. Johnson and the Ethics of Command,” provides his perspective as a third-generation West Point graduate who served in Vietnam as executive officer of a tank battalion.
