Recognized internationally, Dr. Barry has written five books. Her landmark 1979 "Female Sexual Slavery" launched a global movement against trafficking in human beings. Her 1995 book "Prostitution of Sexuality: Global Exploitation of Women" presents the new international law against sexual exploitation she developed in collaboration with UNESCO.

"Unmaking War, Remaking Men" (2011) explores underlying values and assumptions making men expendable, and also looks at sociopathic traits in leaders of nations and the Pentagon which infect our society and our soldiers. http://www.kathleenbarry.net e mail: unmakingwar [at] gmail.com

Empathy training at the pesonal level, and the need possibly for a democratic world federation at the global level to end war are topics of interest and examination.
