A persuasive argument for peace and pacifism, this critical study of the decades leading up to World War II offers insightful profiles of the world leaders, politicians, business people, bankers, and others whose personal politics, ideologies, and agendas provided an inevitable barrier to the peace process and whose actions led to the outbreak of war. 125,000 first printing.
"This quite extraordinary book -- impossible to put down, impossible to forget -- may be the most compelling argument for peace ever assembled. Nicholson Baker displays in astonishing, fascinating detail mankind's unstoppable descent into the madness of war -- slowed only occasionally, but then invariably most movingly, by the still, small voices of the sane and the wise." -- Simon Winchester, author of "The Man Who Loved China" and "The Professor and the Madman"商品の説明をすべて表示する
“Human Smoke” starts right out destroying our pre-conceptions of FDR, Churchill and Elinore Roosevelt. Thaddeus Russell has fact checked “Human Smoke” and finds it right on point accurate and will be retelling what is in “Human Smoke” and his own discoveries in his fourth coming book on WWII.
We need to destroy the tales we have been and are being told by our academies. “Human Smoke” is a great place to start.
The reason I liked it...it is real, and raw. It exposes the truth.
The reason I did not like it...it is like a mirror being held up to my face. I know I could never have done one bit better than those famous and infamous people who managed to get 45 million people murdered through their utter incompetence! That thought really upsets me.
with one overwhelming point,
easy to read, impossible not to see...
let this book put you on the way
and you will be a pacifist/peace activist forever...
