Book description
From our nation's birth in the crucible of revolution, to the bloody Civil War that pitted brother against brother and defined our national destiny, to recent aggressions from those within and without in opposition to our nation's values, American history has been shaped by violence. What is it that has led to such a prevalence of violence in America? What can we learn from our history in order to break this violent cycle? Through his own words and those of his ancestors, Edward W. Wood Jr., a World War II veteran, discusses our violent heritage, from both a personal and societal level. In so doing, he makes a passionate plea for finding peace in the world and in one's own heart.
