For many Americans, their last look at U.S. History was their junior year in high school. A Mighty Case Against War challenges America, and all people, to revisit the stories of how nations have dealt with conflict in order to see how our past informs our present and can mold our decisions for the future.
A Mighty Case Against War begins with a startling account of America's wars, looks at why war sells, and exposes the fallacies of some of our most influential justifications for war. This book examines a history of America's wars that includes "What America Missed in U.S. History Class."
A Mighty Case Against War proposes that this culturally supported, deeply entrenched system of governmental violence is simply too costly, destructive, counterproductive, and inhumane to leave unchallenged. An easily readable book, this is a resource for youth and adult education, peace-building activists, and all who have wondered if a world beyond war is possible.
