Bright Ideas: Mark Weiner on his new book Rule of the Clan

Deven Desai

Deven Desai is an associate professor of law and ethics at the Scheller College of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology. He was also the first, and to date, only Academic Research Counsel at Google, Inc., and a Visiting Fellow at Princeton University’s Center for Information Technology Policy. He is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley and the Yale Law School. Professor Desai’s scholarship examines how business interests, new technology, and economic theories shape privacy and intellectual property law and where those arguments explain productivity or where they fail to capture society’s interest in the free flow of information and development. His work has appeared in leading law reviews and journals including the Georgetown Law Journal, Minnesota Law Review, Notre Dame Law Review, Wisconsin Law Review, and U.C. Davis Law Review.

    THIS BOOK COULD SAVE SO MANY LIVES if the President of the US, the Secretary of State, Foreign Ambassadors, Military Leaders and all Americans involved with foreign policy would read the book. “Rule of the Clan” explains why countries with strong clan cultures such as Afghanistan (and so many others) do not respond to US interventions the way we think they should. I think this book could change our foreign policy, increase understanding between nations and most of all, save the lives of our military, their military and all the innocent victims of war.
