Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The publication date of Dissent: Voices of Conscience is January 15, 2008. It was delayed due, in part, by the lengthy process of clearance by the Department of State.

From the Author

From the Foreword by Daniel Ellsberg:This ... illuminating and remarkably impressive ... book should be leaked into the government. ... This book could awaken ... officials to withdraw their complicity and ... tell the truth to [the public]. This country will not escape further human, legal, and moral catastrophes, or preserve itself as a democratic, constitutional republic, if that does not happen. If you're at all like me, you will have a whole set of new heroes when you finish reading this. ...Dissent: Voices of Conscience could change your life.

Format: Paperback
"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President or that we are to stand by the President right or wrong is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."

Theodore Roosevelt, May 7, 1918.

"Dissent: Voices of Conscience" is about people who have witnessed first hand the deceit and deception on the part of the Bush administration and how they carefully crafted intelligence to fit their plan to invade Iraq. For those who don't know, they were planning to do so from before Inauguration Day 2001. September 11th gave them all the excuse they needed to hatch the plan.

The voices were people in our government who were privy to illegal and immoral acts that were being committed in violation of our Constitutional rights, and in the name of security. They were FBI agents, justice department attorneys, diplomats, and active duty military who witnessed the tortures, the propaganda, and the eavesdropping on American citizens for political purposes rather than for national security. There is also an extensive list of generals and admirals who have spoken out against our policies, and have written Congress and the President.

What really surprised me was what I didn't know because the "mainstream-drive-by-left-leaning" press did not report it here, or else they gave it very little play. It was the outright collusion of British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, and Australian Prime Minister, John Howard who was censured by the Australian Senate in October 2003, for misleading the public in justifying sending troops off to war with one senator even accusing Howard of unprecedented deceit. Numerous diplomats in Her Majesty's government spoke out, leaked information, resigned, or were arrested for following their consciences.

Format: Paperback
Rarely do we get an insider's look at a controversial historic event from so many different angles while the event is still going on. Ann Wright and Susan Dixon present the viewpoints of government insiders and active-duty military personnel, all with attribution, on the Iraq War. This is an angry book, rightly so, when you learn what the contributors have to say. And the role of British Prime Minister (at the time) Tony Blair surprised me. Democracy requires openness in government and military affaris. "Dissent" is a welcome effort in that direction.

Ann Wright and Susan Dixon have turned up the volume on the voices of dissent, according them the credibility and urgency denied them by mainstream media.

This is an essential work. The citizens who put their careers and reputations on the line to inform a nation, a world, of the facts surrounding the most important decisions of our lifetimes, not only need to be honored, but listened to. And any citizen worthy of the claim needs to read and reflect on the selflessness that prompted these men and women to act completely outside their zones of comforts and personal interest.

The book is imminently readable, accessible, supportable. It is a primer on good citizenship as well as an eye-opening revelation of the inner workings of self-interest in government.

Wilson (Woody) Powell

Format: Paperback
Ann Wright presents stories of many who have taken courageous actions in disagreeing with their countries' actions in invading Iraq. Not the least of these is her own action in resigning from the US diplomatic corps after nearly 40 years of service to her country. This new way of service to the United States of America and all fellow/sister human beings is at least as powerful as all she has accomplished in a long and distinguished career as an Army officer and a diplomat.

Format: Paperback
Everyone who felt inpired by John F. Kennedy's book, "Profiles in Courage", or John McCain's "Character is Destiny" will find "Dissent: Voices of Conscience" to be a most worthy sequel. Although all those persons presented are Iraq War dissidents, the real issue is not the Iraq War, or even war in general. Rather it is the recognition of humanity's noblest pursuit - the personal courage to stand by one's conscience, come what may.

Character matters. Honor matters. Integrity matters. The reader who agrees with these sentences will find this book inspiring and reinforcing of one's own pursuit of inner greatness in the midst of overwhelming criticism and negative consequences.

Whether the reader is for the Iraq War or against it, this book will allow the reader to conjure up in the mind others who have shown great courage and self-sacrifice for a noble cause.

As the author of two books, "Christian Chess" and "Early Maxims and Aphorisms", I am very impressed with the authors' consistently high quality of writing style, documentation, and breath of topic. I eagerly await future sequels to this book.

Those against the Iraq War should seriously consider introducing this book to elected officials, whether state legislators or Members of Congress. Those in favor of the war should bring it to the attention of pastors and friends.

Good people can differ on perceptions of the rightness or wrongness of a war or any policy. Most, however, will agree in the rock-solid principles of being men and women of conscience.
