Euphemisms sell war. From Operation Desert Storm to Operation Iraqi Free-dom, and throughout the intervening years of deadly sanctions, a dense fog of rhetoric rose to hide the government's imperialistic ambitions and our brutality. Blunt realities of war have been smothered under layers of language. This book will play a role in the evolution of an increased sensitivity towards the deceptive words of war. Thomas Lee, Ph.D., biologist and pacifist, is also the author of books on the promises and perils of modern genetics, including The Human Genome Project: Cracking the Genetic Code of Lifeand Conquering Rheumatoid Arthritis: The Latest Breakthroughs and Treatments.
