ADICTO A LA GUERRA asume el militar más activa, poderosa y destructiva en el mundo. Cuenta la historia de las guerras extranjeras EE.UU. - de las guerras indias a las actuales guerras en Iraq y Afganistán - en formato cómic.
Integrating fifteen years of field research at weapons laboratories across the United States with discussion of movies, political speeches, media coverage of war, and the literature of defense intellectuals, Hugh Gusterson shows how the military-industrial complex has built consent for its programs and, in the process, taken the public “nuclear.”
Hugh Gusterson makes strange what we have taken for granted about living with bombs. People of the Bomb is a deeply informed consideration of what we desperately need to understand in new ways about ourselves and our political and scientific elites. — Catherine Lutz, author of Homefront: A Military City and the American 20th Century and Reading National Geographic

How Americans Are Seduced by War
2005 - Author: Andrew J. Bacevich
In this provocative book, Andrew Bacevich warns of a dangerous dual obsession that has taken hold of Americans, conservatives and liberals alike. It is a marriage of militarism and utopian ideology--of unprecedented military might wed to a blind faith in the universality of American values.
This perilous union, Bacevich argues, commits Americans to a futile enterprise, turning the US into a crusader state with a self-proclaimed mission of driving history to its final destination: the world-wide embrace of the American way of life. This mindset invites endless war and the ever-deepening militarization of US policy. It promises not to perfect but to pervert American ideals and to accelerate the hollowing out of American democracy. As it alienates others, it will leave the United States increasingly isolated. It will end in bankruptcy, moral as well as economic, and in abject failure.
How our culture wants to make boys like me into fighting machines. Thank you Benny, Brad and Jo. I tried to find a gift for my seven year old grand son. The store had approximately 90% war toys such as weapons, armed vehicles, warriors with weapons, 5% super aggressive fighters without weapons and 5% cars,trucks and farm vehicles and misc. tricks? and toys. Anyone walking through this indoctrination aisle has to be in propaganda induced denial not to see what it means for our children. Unfortunately, that is the situation in our society. Again, thank you.
