The War Economy

War begins in our minds, in the movies we watch, in the social relationships we establish, in the educational system... We live in a society that commodifies and turns everything into business from personal relationships to war. 

This book talks about the business behind the war, and is presented as a tour of all the gears that move around the military economy, ultimately war. It is a text that does not disappoint in its pretensions, since it starts from a clear and precise purpose: the rejection that conflicts should be solved by the use of armed force, when states have many other means to face, transform or solve human conflicts.
