Titel: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens
Sub titel: Reflections on the Consequences of U.S. Imperial Arrogance and Criminality
The "Most Peace-Loving of Nations" has been engaged in brutal military campaigns in every corner of the globe, unceasingly, since its inception. In attempting to forever alter Americans false self-concept, Ward Churchill contextualizes US aggression and the most effective response to it yet-the attacks of Sept. 11th-in a readable format. Churchill has meticulously chronicled both U.S. military campaigns-domestic and foreign-1776-Present and U.S. attempts to violate, obstruct and/or subvert International Law from 1945-Present. Drawing from US military and interventioist history, lessons from Nuremburg and the UN's own voting records, the two Chronologies, exhaustively researched and annotated, illustrate a heartwrenching history of senseless butchery and democracy deterred. In this context, the only fitting question for a nation still reeling from the wake-up call of Sept. 11th is, "How can they not hate us?." In his newest offering, Churchill demands that the American public shake off its collective unconscious and take responsibility for the criminality carried out in its name. Introduction by Chellis Glendinning.
