Militarism and Anti-Militarism


Manufacturer: Black Rose Books

Product Information

"Liebknecht examines all the ways in which militarism is promoted and maintained — conscription, the drumming up of nationalist feeling, patriotic societies, semi-military organisation of the civilian population, the lure of the uniform and the use of slogans like 'if you want peace, prepare for war'. He discusses brutality in military discipline and the existence of military law, both of which serve to break the potential spirit of rebellion in the army. He argues that the very existence of a standing army is a danger to peace, and reviews the unusually harsh punishments meted out to anti-militarists and resisters. In the second part of the book he surveys the activities of anti-militarists up to the time he was writing [around the time of the first world war]. He discusses both specific tactics and the underlying philosophy of anti-militarism."

Karl Liebknecht, with introduction by Dimitrios Roussopoulos. Black Rose Books, 2012.
