Introduction to Loretta Napoleoni’s THE ISLAMIST PHOENIX

The following is the introduction to The Islamist Phoenix, a study of ISIS by Loretta Napoleoni, one of the world’s leading experts on money laundering and the financing of terror.  Islamist Phoenix will be available as an ebook in early November, and as a trade paperback on December 2nd.

For the first time since World War One, an armed organization is redesigning the map of the Middle East drawn by the French and the British. Waging a war of conquest, the Islamic State (IS), formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (al Sham), or ISIS, is erasing the borders that the Sykes-Picot Accord established in 1916.

Project Censored: Pillars of Journalistic Courage

Do you know how Seven Stories Press got its name?  The seven “stories” are seven authors, those whose work lies at the core of our identity as a press, perennially informing our unique publishing mission.  They’re seven authors we continue to read, publish, treasure, and marvel at.  Here’s who they are:

1) Octavia Butler
2) Nelson Algren
3) Annie Ernaux
4) Gary Null
5) Charley Rosen
6) Vassilis Vassilikos
7) Project Censored

What’s next?

Listen, we all know it’s true: summer can bum you out.  TV goes to reruns, it’s too hot to perform almost any of the duties of human existence, and, worst of all, the whole publishing industry slows to a crawl, with few new books emerging to meet the sun.  Well, we feel your pain, and we’d like to help.  Here are the next four books Seven Stories will be publishing, beginning in late August.  Think of them as a dip in the pool for your mind (and try to keep patient).

The Disunited StatesDISUNITED STATES
by Vladimir Pozner
translated by Alison L. Strayer
August 26, 2014
 

In 1936, the Russian-French novelist and screenwriter Vladimir Pozner traveled to the United States, a nation on its knees in the midst of the Great Depression, and wrote luminously, incisively, of what he found there.  Think Alexis de Tocqueville meets James Agee, with just a twist of Faulkner.
