“Essential reading: a passionate plea for peace, and a call for unity and bold action against imperialism”

About the Author

During the years of the U.S. war against Vietnam, Dee Knight was an editor of Amex-Canada, the newsletter of American exiles and expatriates who went to Canada in resistance to that war. He lived in Toronto, Canada, from 1968 to 1974. Amex-Canada helped organize American war resisters and their allies, including antiwar veterans, to sustain the resistance. In 1973 Knight helped to launch the National Council for Universal Unconditional Amnesty, which waged a campaign to end government repression of war resisters and active-duty U.S. soldiers. In January 1977 the campaign scored a partial victory when President Jimmy Carter granted a limited amnesty. Efforts to end punishment for antiwar veterans, active duty soldiers, and militant anti-imperialist activists have continued since those years to the present day.

Gerry Condon

Gerry Condon, Vietnam era GI resister and former president of Veterans for Peace,

“Dee Knight’s incisive chronicling of Ukraine war developments and debates hones closely to one essential truth: the greatest threat to humankind today is the aggressive war-making of the United States.”

Danny Haiphong

Author of American Exceptionalism and American Innocence:
A People’s History of Fake News

A must read for anyone wanting to understand how the U.S. is pursuing war with Russia and China, and why it must be stopped.

Michael Wong

National Vice President of Veterans For Peace,
Co-founder of Pivot To Peace

“Dee Knight shows us we are now at a tipping point, when the old world of war and exploitation is ending, and a new world is coming into being. Read his book and see the pieces of the new world coming together, piece by struggling piece. “

John Catalinotto

Editor, Workers World

“The corporate media in the U.S. and its NATO allies, and in Australia, South Korea and Japan, mobilized a propaganda campaign demonizing Putin and the Moscow government in Europe and slandering Beijing’s policies. Dee Knight’s book combats this propaganda offensive.”
