    One of the most important books in print for US citizens Small wonder Willson is a hero to much of the world Brian risked his life and lost his legs for the truth but he gives it to us intact and unvarnished for the mere price of a book Life doesn t have any better bargains than this.

    An All American boy steps out of a Norman Rockwell painting and discovers the truth about his country This book is about his waking up process, which led him to some very sobering conclusions Conclusions that all Americans should consider His war experiences in Viet Nam were life changing revelations Here he decided that his own government was not only criminal but psychotic He likens the war to the genocide of Native Americans Later insights came from his work in what he called the A An All American boy steps out of a Norman Rockwell painting and discovers the truth about his country This book is about his waking up process, which led him to some very sobering conclusions Conclusions that all Americans should consider His war experiences in Viet Nam were life changing revelations Here he decided that his own government was not only criminal but psychotic He likens the war to the genocide of Native Americans Later insights came from his work in what he called the American criminal injustice system And in Central America, which was Viet Nam all over again Working for change within the system will never work, he decides, because the system is the problem So he becomes a dissident, a rebel, a tax refuser Another insight came in 1987, when his government almost killed him.This book is an indictment of the American way of life, which the author casts off in favor of afair and eco friendly lifestyle The American Way of Life is inherently violent, he concludes It has taken a criminal departure from our deepest humanity America s affluence is based on genocide, slavery, and theft of the world s resources It is unsustainable and will destroy us all in the end He dedicates himself to nonviolence and global justice, to living lightly on the earth.This is autobiography, but rich in hands on history and social commentary Plus ecology, philosophy, and economics His own personal journey of discovery within the context of history Not a pleasant read, but provocative and enlightening Good insights into American foreign policies Many pages of glossy illustrations Indexed and annotated

    This is the story of a man with astonishing courage, a strong passion for justice and a indefatigable spirit S Brian Willson chronicles the most engaging aspects of his decorated life from his involvement in the Vietnam War, to his experience as a lawyer, to life as an activist in its highest sense I was deeply moved by Willson s resonating points which I believe should be required reading in our educational system.
