Wartime Dissent in America: A History and Anthology
Wartime Dissent in America tells the story of U.S. wartime dissent by exploring the speeches, pamphlets and essays of war opponents in every major American war since the Revolutionary War. This history and anthology summarizes each war, with special emphasis on the jeopardy and impact of dissent during each period. Far more than an anthology, the book explores the history and development of American wartime dissent. It is, at once, a valuable collection of the nation’s vital statements of wartime dissent, while also telling the broader story in which this tradition of dissent developed and played out. Robert Mann illuminates the constitutional and moral philosophies used to oppose war over more than two centuries.
