Made Love, Got War: Close Encounters with America’s Warfare State

made lover

Like the rest of the Baby-Boom Generation, author and activist Norman Solomon, grew up in a nation of dazzling progress and ominous shadows. In Made Love, Got War he traces five decades of American politics and culture to dramatize a set of disturbing trends in American public life–most notably warfare abroad and acquiescence at home. Blending personal history and social commentary, Made Love, Got War documents five decades of rising American militarism and the media’s all-too-frequent failure to challenge it. As Daniel Ellsberg notes in the forward, the author’s unique weave of eyewitness narrative and historical inquiry “helps us understand where we are now and how we got here.” Solomon’s firsthand experiences and compelling narrative raise an essential question: To what ends should America use its awesome political, economic, media and scientific power? Made Love, Got War will help readers find meaningful answers.
