Throughout the book, Pollock covers cross-national reporting on human trafficking, HIV/AIDS, water contamination, child labor, same-sex marriage, Guantanamo detainee rights, immigration reform, and post-traumatic stress disorder in the United States. The book was originally published as a special issue of The Atlantic Journal of Communication. Twenty eight of Pollock’s students from TCNJ share credit in the published book.
