"War Made Easy"


WASHINGTON - July 6 - The Los Angeles Times has published an early review of "War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death" -- a new book by Institute for Public Accuracy executive director Norman Solomon.

The review said that "Solomon offers 16 brutally persuasive chapters, each centered on a perennial falsehood, such as 'If This War Is Wrong, Congress Will Stop It,' 'This Is About Human Rights' and 'This Is Not at All About Oil or Corporate Profits.'" And the review called the book, being published next week, "a must-read for those who would like greater context with their bitter morning coffee, or to arm themselves for the debates about Iraq that are still to come."

Solomon is available for interviews this month. He will be in New York City from July 12 to 15 and in Washington, D.C., from July 17 to 23.
