The Military Draft Handbook: A Brief History and Practical Advice for the Curious and Concernedby James Tracy
Synopses & Reviews
More than 30 years have passed since the last official draft ended in 1973. As the quagmire in Iraq deepens, and news reports reveal the possibility of U.S. intervention in other countries, the debate over the need for a new draft (be it a special skills enlistment or full conscription) or even the continuance of the ?backdoor draft? ? continues to grow. People from across the political spectrum are asking, Will there be a new draft? How will it affect me? The Military Draft Handbook addresses those questions and more. Written in a concise, easily accessible manner, the book outlines the history of conscription, how it has been resisted in previous eras, and exposes the ?social justice? argument being used by some draft proponents. Full of plainspoken analysis and practical advice, the book arms readers with the knowledge and organization needed to form a timely defense against forced conscription, making it an essential resource for young people, parents, activists, and educators alike.
A complete, up-to-date sourcebook for anyone concerned about military recruitment written in a concise, easily accessible manner, outlining the history of conscription and how it has been resisted in previous eras. An essential resource for young people, parents, activists, and educators alike.
Delivers real information on how to survive and thrive in the underground art/music/writing scene, and be spectacular too.
