Joel Andreas relies mostly on quotes from leaders of industry and government as well as government documents and memos throughout the book to support his thesis that war is a racket, benefitting the wealthy of this country, and paid for by the working people of this country in taxes and military service. One may argue with his conclusions, but would be hard-pressed to dispute the authenticity of the source material used.
The book inspired me to purchase a number of other books dealing with similar subject matter (some of them used in the impressively long Bibliography listed on the last 3 pages of the book), as I think was part of the intent of the book. It's meant to jolt you awake (especially if you were politically asleep like myself) and encourage you to seek out more information on the subject matter.
I see only a couple small nitpicks with the book.Read more ›
The book is so stunning it makes my head spin after the one hour it takes to read. It's one of those book I want to buy for everyone I know. It actually has the power to change beliefs and assumptions we have about our country and human rights.
Educating ourselves is the only way to open that very painful door. The way this book is written, in simple, comic book form, makes it as painless as possible. Take it in. Lives are at stake.
