Launching this week
Since last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris, the bellicose bellowing has been getting louder and louder: people are craving a military response. It’s perfect timing for the release of Ernie Regehr‘s Disarming Conflict: Why Peace Cannot Be Won On The Battlefield ($27.95, Between the Lines). Regehr rigorously researches war history and cautions that 95 per cent of military adventures worldwide have failed to accomplish their goals. His is a voice that needs to be heard right now. He launches the book Monday (November 23) at Beit Zatoun. See Readings.
