Terrorism and War (Seven Stories' Open Media Book)by Howard Zinn
Synopses & Reviews
In Against War, Howard Zinn shows that while truth is indeed the first casualty of war, there are other casualties as well including civil liberties on the home front and human rights abroad. He also explores the history of U.S. militarism and the long tradition of Americans' resistance to it, from Eugene Debs during World War I to the opponents of military intervention in Afghanistan today.
Taken from new interviews conducted since September 11 and the bombing campaign in Afghanistan, Terrorism and War provides Howard Zinn's most up-to-date thinking on war, terrorism, and the new global order.
Truth--as Zinn shows us in the interviews that make up Terrorism and War--has indeed been the first casualty of war, starting from the beginnings of American empire in the Spanish-American War. But war has many other casualties, he argues, including civil liberties on the home front and human rights abroad. In Terrorism and War, Zinn explores the growth of the American empire, as well as the long tradition of resistance in this country to U.S. militarism, from Eugene Debs and the Socialist Party during World War One to the opponents of U.S. military intervention in Afghanistan today.
These engaging new interviews, conducted since the tragic events of September 11 and the beginning of the bombing campaign in Afghanistan, provide Howard Zinn's most up-to-date thinking on war, terrorism, the new global order, and the long tradition of resistance to US militarism since WWI.
