Auteur: Zinn, Howard
Titel: On war
Howard Zinn on War includes reflections on the Vietnam War, World War II, the recent wars against Iraq and in Kosovo, and on the meaning of war in a world where even the “most advanced” societies have proven themselves incapable of overcoming the primitive predilection for physically attacking their neighbors. In his conclusion to the essay “Just and Unjust War,” Howard Zinn writes, “It remains to be seen how many people in our time will make that journey from war to nonviolent action against war. It is the great challenge of our time: how to achieve justice, with struggle, but without war.” In this powerful collection of new and selected essays, Zinn explores our warring ways over the last hundred years, as well as his own transformation from bombardier to pacifist, from Brooklyn Navy Yard shipfitter to anti-war activist.Howard Zinn on War includes the essays “Violence and Human Nature,” “Non-Violent Direct Action,” “The Bombing of Royan,” “Of Fish and Fisherman,” “A Speech for LBJ,” “Dow Shalt Not Kill,” “Aggressive Liberalism,” “The Curious Chronology of the Mayaguez Incident,” “The CIA, Rockefeller, and the Boys in the Club,” “ What Did Richard Nixon Learn?,” “Machiavellian Realism and U.S. Foreign Policy: Means and Ends,” “Terrorism Over Tripoli;” and others.
