Peace Kills

by

In this latest collection of adventures, P. J. O'Rourke casts his mordant eye on America's recent foreign policy forays. He first travels to Kosovo where he meets KLA veterans, Albanian refugees and peacekeepers, and confronts the paradox of 'the war that war-haters love to love'. He visits Egypt, Israel and Kuwait, where he witnesses citizens enjoying their newfound freedoms - namely, to shop, to eat and to sit around a lot. Following 11 September, O'Rourke examines the far-reaching changes in the US, from the absurd hassles of airport security to the dangers of anthrax. In Iraq, he witnesses both the beginning and the end of Operation Iraqi Freedom and takes a tour of a presidential palace, concluding that the war was justified for at least one reason: criminal interior decorating. "Peace Kills" is an eye-opening look at a world much changed since O'Rourke wrote his bestselling "Give War A Chance" - a book in which he presciently declared that the most troubling aspect of war is sometimes peace itself.
