Monday 22 June 2009: Jane Mayer/Ron Soodalter
On 22 June I talked with New Yorker staff writer Jane Mayer about her book The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How the War on Terror Became a War On American Ideals, which has recently been published in paperback by Anchor Books. Ms Mayer will appear at the Los Angeles Public Library in L A on Tuesday 30 June and at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on Wednesday 1 July.

I then talked with historian Ron Soodalter about The Slave Next Door: Human Trafficking and Slavery in America Today , which he co-authored with Kevin Bales and which has just been published by the University of California Press.
