Army of None: Strategies to Counter Military Recruitment, End War and Build a Better Worldby David Solnit
Synopses & Reviews
Every day in the United States, military recruiters enter the halls of high schools equipped with a goodie bag of promises and free copies of the US Army’s official new video game, America’s Army. Assurances of non-combat positions and college money made largely to teens of color and low-income communities rarely materialize upon real-life service.
An Army of None is a comprehensive guide to counter-recruitment campaigns—from personal counseling to legislative change to direct action. More hands-on and sustainable than other antiwar activities, the counter-recruitment movement offers a provocative vision for the future and has the potential to create deep positive social change and de-militarize our schools, country, and the world at large.
An Army of None is an unprecedented and practical resource for activists, containing compelling photos and artwork, spoken word, sample fact sheets, how-to guides, lobbying directions, resource lists, and ideas for direct action. It provides a frightening look into the world of military recruitment that everyone in the United States should know about, and the hopeful stories, inspiration, and tools necessary to do something about it.
