Dismantling the myths of United States isolationism and exceptionalism, No Higher Law is a sweeping history and analysis of American policy toward the Western Hemisphere and Latin America from independence to the present.

Female SS Guards and Workaday Violence

“The book demonstrates that young women often acted to a considerable degree on their own initiative to ensure the functioning of an extermination camp. . . .
