Dear friends of Just World Books--

It's been a great couple of weeks here at Just World Headquarters!  Our first title, Amb. Chas Freeman's America's Misadventures in the Middle East, had a fabulous debut last week at Washington DC's landmark Cosmos Club.  And now, we're making preparations for launch events for our next two books. Mark your calendars, now, if you're in the DC area: Check the websites of the hosting institutions for details on how to register for these events.

The fourth title in our Fall 2010 list, Reidar Visser's A Responsible End? The United States and Iraq, 2005-2010, will be launched shortly after Thanksgiving. Launch details soon!

Even as we move into the home stretch with the Fall 2010 titles, we have some exciting news and developments to report regarding our Spring 2011 list:
  • I recently signed a contract with Israeli peace activist Miko Peled to publish a family memoir, most likely titled "The General's Son." The book will recount both the trajectory Miko's late father, Matti Peled, made from being a very hawkish IDF general in the lead-up to the Six-Day War of 1967 to being a groundbreaking peacemaker just a few years later, and Miko's own personal trajectory, which has mirrored his father's in many respects-- but with more than a few interesting twists.  (Miko has been active in the Bereaved Families Forum since his beloved niece Smadar was killed in a terror attack nearly a decade ago.)
  • The "Geopolitical Atlas of Palestine", which Just World Books is proud to be publishing in conjunction wth the Bethlehem-based Applied Research Institute of Jerusalem (ARIJ), has already won some rave endorsements from Ramallah-based P.A. Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and Mubadara Party head Dr. Mustafa Barghouthi. Wow!
  • In Spring, we will also be publishing titles by Manan Ahmed on the effects of the U.S. war on terror on society and politics in Pakistan, and by Rami Zurayk on food policy, farming, the environment, and politics in the Middle East.
Who knows, we might have a new book from Amb. Chas Freeman, on China and U.S.-Chinese relations, or other additions to the Spring list, too! One of the great things about JWB's business model is that it really does allow us to be very agile... and to bring you great books with an astonishingly short turnaround time. (Usually less than three months from manuscript acceptance to publication.)

If you've read this far, I'm sure you're enough of a fan that you've bought your own copy of Chas Freeman's book-- and hopefully also a few copies for friends, as well. (Christmas and other winter holidays are coming up!) Would you like us to send you a pack of 20 copies of the great postcard we have, that gives details of all our Fall 2010 titles? Just send us that request.

Also, now that the sales of America's Misadventures are starting to take off, we'd love it if you could head  over to the book's page at Amazon.com, and start getting the reviews ball rolling there in a good way. It looks kind of sad to have no reviews there yet-- even though the book's ranking among books on diplomacy is looking great already!

I'm sure you can think of other ways to help get the word out about our timely and very important books. Maybe you could share some of those ideas by writing them on the "Wall" over at our Facebook page!

Or do write back to me at any time with comments, suggests, or further inquiries--

Warm greetings,

Helena Cobban.
