Author, activist, journalist, radio host and 2015 nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize On tour for the second edition of his book, War is a Lie, David Swanson refutes every major rationale and argument used to justify war. Swanson will present new material on lessons from America’s most recent wars and analyze new trends in war lying and resistance to it.
Peace activist Medea Benjamin of Code Pink says, "This new edition of David Swanson's book should be required reading. It gives you the arguments, outrage and inspiration you need to take action."
Vietnam anti-war activist Daniel Ellsberg declares War is a Lie “a terrific tool for recognizing and resisting war lies before its to late.”
