POW/MIA Accounting — Volume 2: J*P*A*C and the Politics of Human Skeletal Identification To Be Published in April 2019

According to the publisher Palgrave-Macmillan the second volume of POW/MIA Accounting, which is in the production phase, is scheduled to be published and available for hardback and e-book purchase in April 2019.

POW/MIA Accounting — Volume 1: Searching for Missing American Servicemen in the Soviet Union, published by Palgrave Macmillan in April 2018, is available for purchase here.

Volume 2 is a first-hand account of the author’s four years as an Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) Fellow assigned to the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) located at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii.

Volume 2 covers several important issues, including how the accounting program was subjected to “policy capture” by a paid lobbyist; the explanation for why JPAC’s J2/R&A section failed in its mission to locate the remains of missing American service members; the corruption in JPAC’s travel program; the weaponization of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC); the extent of scientific illiteracy in the accounting program’s top leadership; as well as pervasive intereference in the science of human skeletal identification by the media and members of Congress.

When Volume 2 becomes available, a link to the Palgrave-Macmillan site will be posted on this site.
