Addicted To War : Why the U.S. Can't Kick Militarism?

Andreas, Joel (2000) Addicted To War. Paperback  | AK Press |  ISBN:978-1904859011 | $7.99   | 80 Pages

Addicted to War takes on the most active, powerful and destructive military in the world. Hard-hitting, carefully documented and heavily illustrated, it reveals why the United States has been involved in more wars in recent years than any other country. Read Addicted to War to find out who benefits from these military adventures, who pays—and who dies. Over 120,000 copies of the previous edition are in print. This new edition is substantially reworked and fully updated through the War in Iraq. “A witty and devastating portrait of U.S. military policy.”—Howard Zinn
This is a Must Read book! Should be part of Social Studies curriculum in every Junior High School in the country.  As a librarian I came across this book back in 2005, and I been using this with my books clubs ever since. This book is awe, best beginners book covering U.S. Imperialism ever. This book can be followed up with Howard Zinn's “A People’s History of The US” another great book that should be on the mandatory reading list for students. Mr.Philly Librarian
