    Another Century of War? is a candid and critical look at America’s “new wars” by a brilliant and provocative analyst of its old ones. Gabriel Kolko’s masterly studies of conflict have redefined our views of modern warfare and its effects; in this urgent and timely treatise, he turns his attention to our current crisis and the dark future it portends. Books with anti-war themes have explicit anti-war messages or have been described as having significant anti-war themes or sentiments.
