A Mighty Case Against War: What America Missed in U.S. History Class and What We (All) Can Do Now

Kathy Beckwith’s book relates a history of America’s wars that includes “What America Missed in U.S. History Class.” She details why war sells, the fallacies of common justifications for war, true costs of war, and sensible alternatives. “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.
