About this title:
Raskin and Squires ultimately conclude that only by making war an unattractive option and dismantling the warfare system can meaningful progress be made on the current foreign and domestic challenges facing the United States. They also offer steps to replace the warfare system, outlining the ideological and material transformations necessary for peace.
Students of political science, sociology, history, and law will find this a thought-provoking, forward-thinking contribution concerning America?s future at home and abroad.
