Books

La derniere Croisade

Evangelical Christians have constituted one of the most powerful interest groups in the USA, driving a socially conservative agenda to the center of American national life.

La derniere Croisade

Barbara Victor

Since the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 and through the two terms of George W. Bush ending in 2007, the Evangelical Christians have constituted one of the most powerful interest groups in the United States. Not only does this group have influence over presidential elections, but also across vast areas of the political landscape. The Last Crusade traces their beginnings back to the Reformation in the 16th century to the current agenda of The Tea Party which constitutes repression nationally and aggression throughout the world.

Books

Army of Roses

Army of Roses is an inquiry into the forces that drive Women Suicide Bombers and others of the Occupied Territories into such desperate acts of self-destruction.

ARMY OF ROSES

Barbara Victor

Based on hundreds of interviews with victims and perpetrators, Army of Roses exposes the political, religious, and cultural forces that turn Palestinian girls and women into suicide bombers. Promising them martyrdom and equality with men, along with absolution for family transgressions and moral lapses, these women comprise the generation that has left an indelible cancer throughout the Palestinian society. Barbara's documentary film by the same title can be seen and/or purchased on her web site.

Books

Getting Away with Murder

An examination of the epidemic of brutal crimes against women in America.

Getting Away with Murder

Barbara Victor

Every eighteen seconds, a woman in America is beaten by her husband or boyfriend. Yet many of these crimes go unpunished, and even murder convictions often bring shamefully light sentences. In Getting Away with Murder, Raoul Felder and Barbara Victor demonstrate that only a complete reform of society's treatment of both victims and perpetrators can stop the violence.

Books

Coriander

In Buenos Aires, Coriander falls in love in with a charming radical bound up with the revolutionary struggle, who becomes one of the "disappeared".

Coriander

Barbara Victor

Coriander Wyatt, a trauma surgeon in a Brooklyn hospital, is devastated when her husband, prestigious bank president Danny Vidal, dies in an airplane explosion. But a further shock awaits her: Adam Singer, special investigator for the Manhattan DA's office, reveals that Danny's arrest for bank fraud had been imminent. Coriander's love for her husband had spanned a decade and survived his involvement in the revolutionary Montonero movement and his subsequent disappearance at the hands of the Argentine government. Her next discovery--that he has left her a bequest of $1 million cash--compels Coriander to question the truth of the life they led together after he resurfaced in New York, when he vowed to abandon his former political connections.

Books

Shahidas

The Shahidas of Palestine are often victims of their own society. In this book, Barbara Victor lifts the veil on the world of the women suicide bombers.

Shahidas

Barbara Victor

In this astonishing exposé of the political and cultural forces now pressing Palestinian women into martyrdom, investigative journalist Victor identifies what she calls "a new level of cynicism" that has destroyed normal, everyday existence in the Middle East, along with the possibility for lasting peace. Tracing the roots of the women's resistance movement back to so-called personal initiative attacks and a brief period of empowerment in the 1980s before religious leaders clamped down, Victor shows how the current generation of Palestinian women has been courted and cajoled into committing these self-destructive and murderous acts.
