America’s Favorite Pastime:
Vol. II in the series Murder Incorporated: Empire, Genocide, and Manifest Destiny by By Mumia Abu-Jamal & Stephen Vittoria
Foreword by S. Brian Willson, Afterword by David Swanson
Just as the lives of slaves and Indigenous peoples paid for the early growth of the new American nation, so too were lives sacrificed to advance the expansion of empire in the 20th century. Book Two in this epic three-part series is a damning account of war—and the selling of war in America—revealing how riches, imperial expansion, and the consolidation of power have been the true aim of American wars and covert actions, both at home and abroad. The seeds of exceptionalism and divine entitlement, whose planting is detailed in Book One: Dreaming of Empire, yield Book Two: America’s Favorite Pastime and the nightmarish side of the American Century.
