War by Gwynne Dyer

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC War Our gravest error in the late twentieth century writes Gwynne Dyer is to overestimate our distance and difference from the past We believe that the present round of competition between the great powers is different from all others in history that it is invested with special significance because of its ideological dimension and because of its appalling consequences if it were to lead to war But we are wrong modern technology has changed only the results of war Everything else about it is basically the same

As Iraq descends ever closer to civil war no one doubts that George W Bush s Iraq strategy has been an abysmal failure just as Gwynne Dyer argued it would be in both b Ignorant Armies b and b Future Tense b The question now is what will happen not just in Iraq but in the whole Middle East region once American troops are withdrawn In b The Mess They Made b Dyer predicts that the Middle East will go through the biggest shake up since the region was conquered and folded into the Ottoman Empire five centuries ago br br In his trademark vivid prose and in arguments as clear as his research is thorough Dyer brings his considerable knowledge and understanding of the region to bear on the issue of how widespread the meltdown in the Middle East will likely be In five chapters Dyer points the way from present policies and events to likely future developments in Iraq Iran Afghanistan and in the various other countries of the region not least of which is nuclear armed Israel, The First World War was Canada s baptism of fire or at least the only one that people now remember Montrealers in or Torontonians in would have taken a different view From to after a century of peace Canadians were plunged back into the old world of great power rivalries and great wars So was everybody else but Canadians were volunteers We didn t have to fight but we chose to out of loyalty to ideas and institutions that today many of us no longer believe in And we have been doing the same thing ever since although we haven t quite given up on the latest set of ideas and institutions yet br br In i Canada in the Great Power Game i Gwynne Dyer moves back and forth between the seminal event the First World War and all the later conflicts that Canada chose to fight in He draws parallels between these conflicts with the same idealism among the young soldiers and the same deeply conflicted emotions among the survivors surfacing time and again in every war right down to Afghanistan And in each case the same arguments pro and con arise mostly from people who are a long safe way from the killing grounds for every one of those wars of choice br br Echoing throughout the book are the voices of the people who lived through the wars the veterans the politicians the historians the eyewitnesses And Dyer takes a number of so called excursions from his historical account in which he revisits the events and puts them in context pausing to ask such questions as What if we hadn t fought Hitler and Is war written in our genes This entertaining and provocative book casts an unsparing eye over what happens when Canada and the great powers get in the war business illuminating much about how we see ourselves on the world stage, This essential collection contains the best of Gwynne Dyer s writing on the post September world br br Since writer historian and filmmaker Gwynne Dyer has written a widely syndicated newspaper column on international affairs regularly published in countries i With Every Mistake i is not only a collection of the very best of Dyer s recent work but an examination of how time and again the media skews fact and opinion wielding formidable influence on how we all shape our own thoughts And why is so much of the information wrong Is it herd instinct official manipulation robber baron owners with ideological obsessions or just the conflict between the inherently bitty short term nature of news reporting and analysis and the longer perspectives needed to understand what is actually going on How much misinformation stems from simple ignorance and laziness, Gwynne Dyer is cheering up Sure the past decade has had more than its share of stupid wars obsessions about terrorism denial about climate change rapacious turbo capitalism and lies lies lies But signs of progress actually do abound While the world is far from perfect as we embark on a fresh decade Dyer believes that the sense of sliding out of control towards ten different kinds of disaster has gone When things go wrong it s always easy to pin blame but singling out the forces that lead to positive change can be trickier br br In this illuminating collection of columns from the last five years Gwynne Dyer ferrets out the signs of hope without overlooking the issues that remain seemingly intractable Mining the events of recent history Dyer contextualizes the recent past and anticipates what the future might have in store This journalist s beat is global from Africa to South America from Europe to the Middle East and any other region with a political pulse br br Acerbic and iconoclastic Dyer has never been afraid to call em like he sees em and we are all the better for his trademark candour and the breadth of his knowledge and expertise For anyone seeking to understand the larger forces that shape our society and our world b Crawling from the Wreckage b makes for necessary reading
