Press Release Body = Myrtle Beach, SC, September 11, 2006 - Grapevine Publishing is proud to announce the addition of Dr. Amaal V.E. Tokars book, America & Iraq: Seduced by Fear available Spring 2007. In her book, Tokars states: "As the world prepares to enter one of its most serious wars in history, it is most crucial for American citizens to be able to obtain information and understand issues. It is through Textual Imagery, information and communication filtered to us second by second, that most American people shape their beliefs and opinions simply by virtue of what they have read, heard or have been shown."
The author, Dr. Amaal Tokars takes you on a journey before 9-11 and after, demonstrating why the average citizen should have been prepared for war and how the notion of our freedom has been relegated to a diminished voice. Dr. Tokars stresses that without true understanding and knowledge of other cultures and current events, we remain static and forego any possibility of the freedoms that our forefathers fought so intensely for. She carefully documents why a civilized human society cannot afford to think in tribal terms and how that type of thinking will only lead to mistrust and, in due course, to completely unjustifiable disasters such as what tragically happened on 9-11.
Dr. Tokars guides readers toward the process of becoming an Organic Citizenry by learning how to discern truth with clarity and discover where to go to acquire the facts, renewing our authentic voice and true freedom. Dr. Tokars challenges her readers to be Organic Citizens, to commit themselves to decipher and challenge all Textual Imagery-to think, question, act, and participate. Dr. Tokars gives us an intriguing analysis and a challenge to live our lives as more responsible citizens of the world.
