What is Gary J. Bass reading?

The current featured contributor to Writers Read: Gary J. Bass, Associate Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University.

Bass works on international security, human rights and war crimes tribunals, but the book he mentions -- read all about it -- is not about any of those subjects.

Bass is the author of Stay the Hand of Vengeance: The Politics of War Crimes Tribunals as well as articles and book chapters on international justice. His new book, Freedom's Battle: The Origins of Humanitarian Intervention, is due out in August 2008 from Knopf. Before joining the Princeton faculty, he was a reporter for The Economist. He has also written for the New York Times, The New Yorker, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, The New Republic, and other publications.
