I have an issue with Chris Hedges. I like his writing. Or, I think I do. The problem is that Hedges seems to have one of two big problems. He is either a serial plagiarist, or he inexplicably writes in a way that mimics other published works line by line at substantial length- again and again and again. In this book he steals, or mysteriously mimics passages from Naomi Klein.

So back to my problem. I think I like Chris Hedges' writing, but maybe I just like his source material.

The author accepts that war is part of human history but, based on his experiences as a journalist in war zones, he shows the dark side of how terrible war is on people. This is a good book to balance the unemotional military histories that do not show the human side.
