Author and activist DAVID SWANSON has dedicated himself to challenging the repetitive falsehoods generated by those in power to justify armed conflict. War Is A Lie is a handbook of sorts, an engaging, always informative manual that can be used to debunk future lies before new wars have any chance to begin.
In this second edition of Swanson’s book (first published in 2010), War Is A Lie has been updated and expanded with material on lessons from the United States’ most recent wars, more pointers on what can be done to end warmaking, and an epilogue that analyzes new trends in war lying and in resistance to it. No one to whom you give this book can claim they haven’t been warned!
