It has become routine for the U.S. government to invoke human rights to justify its foreign policy decisions and military ventures. But this human rights talk has not been supported by a human rights walk. Policymakers consistently apply a double standard for human rights norms: one the rest of the world must observe, but which the U.S. can safely ignore. Based on extensive interviews with leading foreign policymakers, military officials, and human rights advocates, Mertus tells the story of how America's attempts to promote human rights abroad have, paradoxically, undermined those rights in other countries. The second edition brings the story up to date, including new sections on the second half of the Bush administration and the Iraq War, and updates on Afghanistan. The first edition of Bait and Switch won the American Political Science Association's 2005 Best Book on Human Rights.

The bestselling author of Nickel and Dimed goes back undercover to do for America's ailing middle class what she did for the working poor Barbara Ehrenreich's Nickel and Dimed explored the lives of low-wage workers. Now, in Bait and Switch, she enters another hidden realm of the economy: the shadowy world of the white-collar unemployed. Armed with a plausible résumé of a professional "in transition," she attempts to land a middle-class job—undergoing career coaching and personality testing, then trawling a series of EST-like boot camps, job fairs, networking events, and evangelical job-search ministries. She gets an image makeover, works to project a winning attitude, yet is proselytized, scammed, lectured, and—again and again—rejected. Bait and Switch highlights the people who've done everything right—gotten college degrees, developed marketable skills, and built up impressive résumés—yet have become repeatedly vulnerable to financial disaster, and not simply due to the vagaries of the business cycle. Today's ultra-lean corporations take pride in shedding their "surplus" employees—plunging them, for months or years at a stretch, into the twilight zone of white-collar unemployment, where job searching becomes a full-time job in itself. As Ehrenreich discovers, there are few social supports for these newly disposable workers—and little security even for those who have jobs. Like the now classic Nickel and Dimed, Bait and Switch is alternately hilarious and tragic, a searing exposé of economic cruelty where we least expect it.

Many people wonder how Comcast remains in business while having such a bad reputation. And why haven't they been exposed? I used to wonder the same thing myself...I realized that in order for anyone to ever publish an accurate and true tell all book exposing Comcast and reveal all what they are doing and how they are doing it, it would require a tremendous amount of focus and organization of facts. Not just organization of events, but an organization of one's thoughts on the matter. Because we all know that when someone or something irritates or frustrates us, it can sometimes be difficult to focus and truly put things into perspective. Fortunately, throughout my 3 years of working at Comcast, I kept a journal of every significant event and occurrence that I saw as unethical, shady or something that was just plain ole messed up. I admit that initially I had no specific reason for keeping a journal, but as time went on, something told me that my detailed note taking would one day serve a purpose. After about a year and a half, I got the idea to write a book about Comcast. I wanted the world to know exactly what's going on and even show readers how to escape agreements without paying an early termination fee. Because of what I see unfolding and how it is affecting and going to affect so many consumers, something had to be done. Bottom line, what they are doing just ain't right. Enough is Enough!
