Sex, Drugs, and Body Counts gets a rave from Slate

In the July 14 edition of Slate, it becomes clear that Jack Shafer likes Sex, Drugs, and Body Counts, the new book edited by Peter Andreas and Kelly M. Greenhill, QUITE A LOT:

“If you’re a journalist, a gluttonous consumer of news, or are easily swayed by the slapdash, stop what you’re doing and go buy a copy of Sex, Drugs, and Body Counts: The Politics of Numbers in Global Crime and Conflict. Set aside a couple of hours tonight to read three or four of the essays that academics Peter Andreas and Kelly M. Greenhill collected in it. Then, sit down in front of your computer and send me an e-mail to thank me for helping to end your enslavement to the dodgy numbers that taint journalism and public policy. It’s not just a good book. It’s a great book. And it belongs forever on your bookshelf.”
