Ending the War in Iraq by Tom Hayden
The Iraq War can be brought to an end by applying public pressure against the pillars of President George W. Bush’s foreign policy. A new kind of antiwar movement, delineated in Tom Hayden’s urgent new book, is helping to knock down those pillars. For the first time in American history, a majority of citizens has voted against a war in progress. This is a book for millions of peace activists, for the undecided public and for the 2008 presidential candidates. Tom Hayden was a founding member of the Students for a Democratic Society and author of its visionary call, the Port Huron Statement. He was also one of the “Chicago Eight” protesters during the 1968 Democratic Convention. Hayden was elected to California State Assembly in 1982, and to the State Senate ten years later, serving eighteen years in all.
