Mark Mazzetti spoke about his book, The Way of the Knife: The CIA, a Secret Army, and a War at the Ends of the Earth, at Politics & Prose on Sunday, April 28, 2013.

In his investigation of how wars are fought today, the Pulitzer-winning New York Times national security correspondent finds that dark spaces are the new battlefields. From special operations forces to clandestine intelligence networks, Mazzetti shows how the lines between soldiers and spies have blurred. While proponents of these tactics tout their efficiency and cost effectiveness, Mazzetti warns of their destabilizing effects and the difficulties of accountability.

Shannon K. O'Neil spoke about her book,Two Nations Indivisible: Mexico, the United States, and the Road Ahead, at Politics & Prose on Thursday, April 4, 2013.

The Mexico most Americans think they know—riddled with drug-related violence and funneling undocumented immigrants north—is only part of the story. O’Neil, senior fellow for Latin American studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, shows that the other part is a more prosperous and democratic nation, with a growing, better educated, and more stable middle class.
