Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Mahajan writes clearly and in plain language and the book takes on directly the main issues surrounding the war."—
-Educational Book Review

Booknews
Mahajan (a doctoral student in physics and peace activist) presents a forceful alternate view to America's war on terrorism, stressing the inhumane results to common people and the benefits to a minority elite (the latter mainly in the US) and the misrepresentation of events in the western media. Detailing the parallel political agendas of the current President Bush and his father, Mahajan describes the history of an economic agenda which he argues lies behind America's war in Afghanistan and its expansion globally as a war on terrorism.
