“How can you have a war on terrorism when war itself is terrorism?” ―Howard Zinn

Truth — per Howard Zinn’s classic text Terrorism and War — is the first casualty of war, and one can see evidence of this from the beginnings of the American empire, through the so-called “War On Terror,” to today, with the U.S.’s funding of the Israeli war on Palestine and our most recent bombing campaign against Yemen.

Below, we’ve compiled a timely selection of titles on U.S. imperialism, ranging from Bush-era pamphlets to classic works of anti-war literature from Angela Davis, Howard Zinn, Che Guevara, Noam Chomsky, and more.
