This volume of lectures is remarkably prescient and historically relevant in light of the recent revelations of NSA spying, drone assassinations and the suppression of Constitutionally protected rights by the Democratic administration of Barack Obama.

This is an extraordinary account of the worst factory fire in history - the 1993 blaze at the Kader Industrial Toy Company outside Bangkok, Thailand.
