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.

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.

The author presents an original theory of history and a bold defense of individualism as the source of moral and political progress. When it was published, her book placed her in the vanguard of the free-enterprise movement now sweeping the world.

The Photographic History of the Civil War was first published in 1911 to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the great conflict. The thousands of photographs contained within are remarkable in their immediacy, spontaneity, and authenticity.
