Description

The book treats the compelling question of war and personal responsibility in contemporary America. Cheyney Ryan examines how Americans often support modern warfare but have zero interest in fighting themselves (hence, the 'chickenhawk syndrome,' where one who champions war seeks to avoid any personal sacrifice). Ryan seeks to show how we must come to terms with our understanding and valuing of war when we ourselves are not committed to fighting in it.
