"Americans have been at war for most of our history as a people. Wars of conquest gave way to wars of empire, the Civil War to the World Wars, and the Cold War to the War on Terror. Our national anthem celebrates heroism under fire, and martial imagery permeates our politics and our pastimes. But at every turn in this history, Americans have questioned and resisted both particular wars and justifications for war in general. Taking up the pen instead of the sword, they have produced a body of literature of great passion and power, a homegrown American tradition that refuses the proposition that war is the inevitable price of liberty or prosperity - that dares to envision a world where people learn war no more. Gathering essays, letters, speeches, memoirs, songs, poems, cartoons, leaflets, stories, and other works by nearly 150 writers from the colonial era to the present, War No More brings this extraordinary writing together for the first time in a single volume"--… (more)

Excellent compendium for its historical value. We'll all complain, of course, about what's been left out ... but that's to be expected in any anthology of this sort. One complaint I do have is that there wasn't more debate on pacifism versus anti-colonialist resistance.

And where were ...? "With God on Our Side"? "I Ain't Marching Any More"? Possibly in both cases the licensing fees from Dylan and from the Ochs estate were too high? It's unfortunate that LoA couldn't have paid the fee for such Viet Nam era classics (assuming that was the problem), but perhaps LoA needed to set a fixed licensing rate or they would have had to pay other poets/lyricists more as well.

And although Buffy Sainte-Marie's Canadian and thus technically not eligible for LoA, it would have been nice to have had an exception made for the sake of "Universal Soldier."

The texts are introduced by a short biography of each author, but that's not necessarily enough and unfortunately this volume is missing the end-notes traditional to LoA. And although there's a bibliographical listing at the rear of the book, it would have been helpful if the date-of-publication of each work had been identified in accompaniment to the text. Such dating sometimes but not always appears in the short introductory author-biography, but a simple year-of-publication would have been useful right in the title of the text. ( )
