Hedges has reported the front lines in the Balkans, the Middle East and Central America, and is troubled by what he sees: friends, enemies, colleagues and strangers intoxicated and even addicted to the heady brew of war. He tackles this ugly truth of the human animal with a sophisticated, nuanced and intelligent response that aims to be gritty and powerful.Hide synopsis

Warfare has been more than popular theme in any historical period. Chris' book is eyewitness' guide to modern warfare, but he speaks about constant, eternal questions: why humans wage wars, what they feel when they do it and why this action is insane. Chris is honest, he names things with their names, and he is extremely close to reality. I ordered this book for my post-doctoral research because of all these values.
