    The United States is losing the counterintelligence war. Foreign intelligence services, particularly those of China, Russia, and Cuba, are recruiting spies in our midst and stealing our secrets and cutting-edge technologies. In To Catch a Spy: The Art of Counterintelligence, Olson offers a wake-up call for the American public and also a guide for how our country can do a better job of protecting its national security and trade secrets. 

    Join Mr. Olson and WAC Dallas/Fort Worth President and CEO Jim Falk as they discuss Olson's recent book: To Catch a Spy: The Art of Counterintelligence.

    Studies of the 20th c. have found that the last 100 years has seen
    more people die through genocide and state-sanctioned murder
    than on the century’s many battlefields. Effectively responding to
    genocide, ethnic violence, and abuses of human rights is a
    primary challenge of our day.
    Communities and schools deal daily
    with people who have lived through the experience.

    The California History-Social Science Framework includes study
    of the Holocaust and other genocides in recent history. The goal
    is to learn why these atrocities happened, how they can be
    prevented, and what can be done to help the victims. The
    hardest part is rebuilding societies and trust among people
    and institutions.
    Though the atrocities themselves are discussed,
    the major focus of Justice After Genocide is how we as a
    community of people and nations can rebuild societies and
    create trust in neighbors, government, and the future.
