A MIGHTY CASE AGAINST WAR: What America Missed in U.S. History Class and What We (All) Can Do Now
Date: November 2017
Duration: 11 hours 47 minutes
Beckwith 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. Beckwith does not side-step the tough questions: What about Hitler? And genocide? If not war, then what? 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. This is a resource for youth and adults alike – from peacebuilding activists to career military to those who doubt that a world beyond war is even possible. Audiobook narration invites the listener, through the author's words and voice, to explore not just a past from which to learn, but a future full of hope for America and for our world.
