Dr. Carolyn LaDelle Bennett
Dr. Carolyn LaDelle Bennett is credentialed in education and print journalism and public affairs. A lifelong American writer and writer/activist and a former academic and staffer in Washington, her work concerns itself with news and current affairs, historical contexts, particularly related to acts and consequences of U.S. foreign relations, geopolitics, human rights, war and peace, violence and nonviolence.
Her 2014 book, UNCONSCIONABLE, reflects upon contemporary journalism and other works. It conveys how the United States and NATO are perceived, internationally, why, the consequences of the image they convey, and proposed changes and solutions.
The book has been written within the context of the post-2001 era, these United States’ so-called Global War on Terrorism, the U.S.’ Asia Pivot, the wars on Libya and Syria which according to former French Foreign Minister Roland Dumas were planned years before the first “Arab Spring” protests in 2011, the renewed war on Iraq under the guise of the war on terror, and a situation in Ukraine that has led world renown thinkers like Dr. Henry Kissinger and the last Head of State of the USSR, Michel Gorbachev, to state that we have entered a new cold war era.
UNCONSCIONABLE is in all regards a timely book that is highly relevant. It is well written and in my opinion it is a “must read”, especially for those U.S. Americans who have formed their perception of how the world perceives the Unites States based upon corporate U.S. and Western media.
I’d like to thank Dr. Carolyn LaDelle Bennett for inducing an analysis and quotations from one of my articles entitled “South East China Sea, A Perfect Crisis for the International Crisis Group”, in her book. The article, which was co-authored by Alexander Mezyaev, Christopher Black and James Henry Fetzer is dealing with various aspects of post-2001 U.S. and NATO foreign policy and the erosion of international law. The article concludes that there is an urgent need for a new system of international justice as opposed to a continued descend into anarchy and tyranny.
