Amador Publishers, LLC is proud to release Feeling the Unthinkable, Essays on Social Justice by Donald Gutierrez in a 4-volume collection of e-books for ease of reading and reference. Each of the four volumes follows exactly its corresponding Part in the print edition.

"War and Democracy - War on Democracy" deals with problematic, even crucial, areas of America's democracy including militarization of the U.S., war, political language, universal jurisdiction over war crimes, and the threat of nuclear war not only to democracy but to all life on earth.
"This is a must-read collection for social justice activists. In these short essays and reviews, Gutierrez punctures America's wrongfully inflated sense of self. He sharply challenges our militarization, our repeated wars, and our promotion and acceptance of torture. He condemns our toleration of economic injustice and our blindness to our maintenance of the largest prison system in the world. But Gutierrez does not just critique, he promotes human rights as well as personal and communal solidarity. He calls us to respect human rights, to promote solidarity with others, and to change our world while we still have the chance." --William P. Quigley, Professor of Law, Loyola University New Orleans School of Law, and Director of the Law Clinic and Gillis Long Poverty Law Center
