Swanson is on a national book tour to discuss and answer questions about his recently published 2nd edition of War Is A Lie. His first edition had a huge impact in 2010 and was published in the United States, Europe, and China. His book is a thorough refutation of every major argument used to justify wars, drawing on evidence from numerous past wars, with a focus on those that have been defended as just and good.
