"Jamail's human portrait of the men and women who turned away from the project of empire should serve as a beacon."--Chris Hedges

"Dahr Jamail is one of very few journalists who have displayed the courage--physical, intellectual, and moral courage--to tell the truth about the invasion of Iraq. In this outstanding book, he describes the often secret resistance within the US military."--John Pilger

Dahr Jamail's comprehensive study of today's military resisters sheds new light on the contours of dissent within the ranks of the world's most powerful military. Featuring a new introduction by the author.
