A Century of War
by John V. Denson
Publisher: Ludwig Von Mises Institute 2006
Number of pages: 216
John Denson, in a book that covers the history of America's large wars from 1860 through the Cold War, describes the twentieth century as the bloodiest in all history not coincidentally a century of statism. Denson recounts how the wars that destroyed American liberty came about through a series of deceitful political ploys. He provides a close examination of the rise of executive dictatorship, and demonstrates how far from the founders' vision of government we have come. It explains how world peace can only come through the practice of free trade and free markets, and why large government can only create conflict both domestic and international.

A history of the United States from the Revolution to the present. The book weaves together a very well done story of America. It is encyclopedic in its coverage, with hundreds of pages on everything from Native Americans to the 9-11 attacks.

These narratives of witchcraft are no fairy tales. Weird as they seem to us, they were the most intense of realities to thousands of men and women in 17th century America. They were the bulletins of a war more actual than any fray of flesh and blood.

The text is an impartial narrative supplementing the pictures. The more intelligent people of the country desire the truth put on record, and all bitter feeling eliminated. This work, with its text and pictures, will add greatly to that end.
