War & Peace
In a world consumed by wars of all kinds, how do we make sense of the madness? Through peerless on-the-ground reporting, inquiries into the impact of "sanitized" modes of warfare, and fictional adventures and misadventures, these six books invite us to swim against the tides of violence and ask why we so often fail to give peace a chance.
