The United States’ military doctrine—as proclaimed by the U.S. Department of Defense—is to attain “full-spectrum dominance…in the air, land, maritime, and space domains and in information environment…without effective opposition or prohibitive interference.” This is an agenda for global conquest toward an ever-expanding U.S. empire. As the United States prepares for conflict with Russia and China, wars continue in the Middle East and North Africa as tens of millions are exiled from their homes and many more face famine.

Nonetheless, there is not only hope for change in the air, but there is also active resistance. People all over the world are challenging the status quo by taking nonviolent action. Voices for Peace features some of the world’s leading thinkers, journalists, and activists, offering insight, inspiration, and solutions to the world’s most critical problems, including nuclear war, environmental destruction, and refugee flows.

In the wealth of material presented here, Kathy Kelly talks about the Afghan Peace Volunteers and Standing Rock protesters in the U.S., calling for global unity. Bruce K. Gagnon offers his piece on space weapons and discusses South Korean activist opposition to American weapons in their country. Brian Terrell challenges the legality of drone warfare and outlines the grassroots links being forged between U.S. and Russian citizens. Noam Chomsky discusses U.S. policies toward Russia and Syria, as well as South America, trade, ISIS (or Daish), and Ukraine. John Pilger talks about the Trump–Obama naval build-up around China and exposes Britain’s “deep state” connections to the Manchester terror attack. Former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney analyzes the Charlie Hebdo attacks and the “deep state” in recent U.S. history. Ilan Pappé offers an exclusive analysis of Israel’s actions toward ethnically “cleansing” Israel of Palestinians. Finally, Robin Ramsay exposes the unconditional support given to the U.S. by successive UK governments.

Seeking to inform and educate, this penetrating anthology is edited and introduced by author T. J. Coles, who provides a broad framework and context to the individual articles.
