1 10 Excellent Reasons Not to Join the Military


A short, snappy handbook detailing why the military may need you, but you really don't need it. "The Army's top recruiter, already struggling to meet his quotas this year, said ….that 2006 would be even harder, and perhaps the toughest year for recruiting since the all-volunteer force began in 1973."—The New York Times, May 13, 2005 So you're walking out of school and parked at the gate is a new, bright red Ford Mustang with a hulk of a man in the front seat. He's sporting a razor cut and wraparound shades. Before you can pass he's out of the car and blocking your path. "Mind if I take a minute"—he has you by the arm now—"to tell you about the great life in today's Army and why you should seriously think about signing up?" The armed forces are having a tough time attracting new recruits lately, in no small part due to the mess in Iraq. Young people are getting wise to the many excellent reasons not to join the U.S. Military, and this handy book brings them all together, combining accessible writing with hard facts and devastating personal testimony. Contributors with firsthand experience point out the dangers facing soldiers, describe the tricks used by recruiters, and emphasize that there really are other options, even in a sluggish economy. It's essential reading for anyone thinking of signing up. Over 2,000 American soldiers have been killed in Iraq, and over 14,000 have been wounded. • Nearly 100,000 civilians have been killed in Iraq as a result of the U.S. invasion. • One in six soldiers returning from Iraq experiences mental health problems. • Two-thirds of all recruits receive no college funding from the military, and only 15 percent graduate with a four-year degree. • According to the VA, 90 percent of recent women veterans reported experiencing sexual harassment; a third were raped.

3 500 Years of Indigenous Resistance

Hill, Gord PM Press Trade Paperback

Brand New 

The history of the colonization of the Americas by Europeans is often portrayed as a mutually beneficial process, in which '”civilization” was brought to the Natives, who in return shared their land and cultures. A more critical history might present it as a genocide in which Indigenous peoples were helpless victims, overwhelmed and awed by European military power. In reality, neither of these views is correct. 500 Years of Indigenous Resistance is more than a history of European colonization of the Americas. In this slim volume, Gord Hill chronicles the resistance by Indigenous peoples, which limited and shaped the forms and extent of colonialism. This history encompasses North and South America, the development of nation-states, and the resurgence of Indigenous resistance in the post-WW2 era.

6 City of Widows: An Iraqi Woman's Account of War and Resistance

Zangana, Haifa Trade Paperback

Brand New 

In City of Widows, Haifa Zangana tells the story of her country, from the early twentieth century through the US-UK invasion and the current occupation. She brings to light a sense of Iraq as a society mainly of secularists who have been denied, through years of sanctions, war, and occupation, a system within which to build the country according to their own values. She points to the long history of political activism and social participation of Iraqi women, and the fact that, before the recent invasion, they had been among the most liberated of their gender in the Middle East. Finally, she writes about Baghdad today as a city populated by bereaved women and children who have lost their loved ones and their land, but who are still emboldened by the native right to resist and liberate themselves to create an independent Iraq.

23 U.S. Army Guerrilla Warfare Handbook

Department of the Army Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

They are swift, silent, and deadly. That’s why armed guerrillas are feared by even the largest, best-equipped fighting forces. No tank, rocket-propelled grenade, or infantry battalion can match the guerrilla team’s ability to exact brutality with precision, instill fear in enemy hearts, and viciously deflate morale. From the snows of Korea to the jungles of Southeast Asia to the mountains of Afghanistan, the U.S. Army has employed guerrilla tactics to deadly effect. Those tactics and techniques, being used today by U.S. soldiers, are laid out in the U.S. Army Guerrilla Warfare Handbook. Employing small, heavily-armed, and well-oiled fire teams, guerrilla warfare has played an invaluable role in the success of nearly every U.S. campaign for decades. Here, its methods are detailed: raids and ambushes, demolition, counterintelligence, mining and sniping, psychological warfare, communications, and much more. This is an inside look at the guerrilla strategies and weapons that have come to be feared by enemies and respected by allies. Not another outside perspective or commentary on unconventional warfare, this is the original—of use to soldiers in the field and to anyone with an interest in military tactics.

Why would anyone want to work in a war zone? The most common reason is money - and there is a lot of it to be made in a war zone. Whether they are paid in dollars, marks or dinars, war-zone workers often make 10 times what they would back home, and quite a few make in one year what it would take them 20 to earn back home. And the earnings may be tax free if you follow the rules outlined in this book. Others choose to work in war zones because of the travel. Not only are expenses to and from the war zone covered, but workers frequently take breaks in nearby vacation spots for almost nothing. It's the challenge of performing in a combat zone that draws some to this work, and not a day goes by that some part of you is not challenged in a war-torn area. Your motivation may be more noble: you want to help people. In a war zone you can touch the lives of so many people with just a little effort and compassion. Whatever your motivation, if you are looking for an exciting new job or personal challenge, Working in a War Zone is for you. Written by a veteran war-zone worker, this entertaining guide is crammed with practical advice on finding jobs, negotiating compensation, locating safe shelter, managing your finances and everything else you need to know to not only survive but prosper in a war zone.
