The Military Industrial Complex at 50 (2012) -- the most comprehensive collection available explaining what the military industrial complex is, where it comes from, what damage it does, what further destruction it threatens, and what can be done and is being done to chart a different course.
When the World Outlawed War (2011) -- named by Ralph Nader as one of the six books everyone should read.  A key book to understanding the tradition of Armistice Day, which is fast approaching.
War Is A Lie (2010) -- widely praised best-selling classic. "There are three insightful books I've read that explain how and why no good can come of the current U.S. reliance on military force and war in seeking its desired 'Pax Americana': War Is A Racket by General Smedley Butler; War Is A Force That Gives Us Meaning by Chr is Hedges, and War Is A Lie by David Swanson." — Coleen Rowley, former FBI special agent, whistleblower, and Time magazine person of the year.
Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union (2009) -- "There have now been many books written which chronicle the imperial, lawless presidency of the Bush era, but Swanson’s superb new book -- Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union -- is one of the very few to examine how we can recover from it and reverse its pernicious trends." --Glenn Greenwald

  1. I am having to spam out some items which don't make any sense & a few which do make some sense but are a little over the top & lead to other links which I don't trust at all...

    So plz if someone signs as anon esp if they give a link to what they call their website or another...PLZ ignore the same...

    You probably already knew that but just in case...

    Some of these comments sound like this:

    "I don't even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good. I don't know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you aren't already ;) Cheers! Here is my blog"

    DONT TRUST ANY ANON on my site or even with a name yet questionable over the top type stuff...
