About this title

Synopsis:

Blending personal history and social commentary, Made Love, Got War documents five decades of rising American militarism and the media’s all-too-frequent failure to challenge it. The author’s unique weave of personal narrative and historical inquiry, Daniel Ellsberg notes in the foreword, “helps us understand where we are now and how we got here.”

Drawing on 40 years of intense activism, Solomon shows how the mainstream media have shaped our view of war, technology, and national purpose. In the process, he also shows why he is considered “one of the sharpest media-watchers in the business” (Barbara Ehrenreich) and “a formidable thinker and activist” (Los Angeles Times).

From the Back Cover:

"Here is a book with a thousand memories for those of us who came of political age while living through urban riots, the Vietnam War, and the Nixon years. Norman Solomon, one of America's most respected progressive voices, gets personal in this account of living through the age of Vietnam, Nixon, tie-dye T shirts, girlfriends, and even the music that will forever waft through the minds of those of us who were there. Those of us who, like journalist Solomon, will never forget it." ***Phil Donahue____________________

"Norman Solomon has consistently done all he can to be a public voice for those who have no voice: those who fight and those who die in war. And he does it with excellent, interesting and intelligent style, something terribly lacking in today's media. Everything he does brings nourishment to America's modern literary wasteland." ***Joe McDonald, Country Joe and the Fish____________________

"A kaleidoscope of personal adventures and political insights sprinkled with cultural icons from Bob Dylan to James Baldwin, Made Love, Got War is an enthralling journey from the Cold War to the war on terror. With great flair, Solomon evolves from a teenage hippie drop-out arrested for spray-painting into a top-notch journalist who travels to war zones with Congressmen and Hollywood stars--without ever giving up his thirst for peace, love and social justice. A fascinating read!" ***Medea Benjamin, co-founder, Global Exchange and CODEPINK: Women for Peace____________________

"Norman Solomon's latest book combines his customary expert dissection of the role of the media and the military establishment in America with his own personalized account of growing up and growing radicalized. From the launch of Sputnik in 1957 to the debacle in Iraq 50 years later, Norman's eyewitness descriptions of key events are a perfect backdrop to his critique of our country's increasingly militaristic development of the science of death and of the media's failure to question. We should all heed his call to activism, or our children's future could be in doubt." ***Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey____________________

"A great contribution to the people's history of the Iraq War." ***Tom Hayden, author of Ending the War in Iraq____________________

"Anyone who cares about democracy knows no better friend--and those who profit from democracy's abuses know no worse enemy--than Norman Solomon. Made Love, Got War compellingly recounts his fearless resistance to war and its profiteers for the better part of four decades. A must read for those who love democracy and despise war." ***Josh Rushing, former Marine captain and author of Mission Al-Jazeera
