Addicted to War: Why the US Can’t Kick Militarism
Publisher: AK Press | Pages: 77 | 3rd Edition of 2004 | ISBN 1-904859-02X | JPG | 34 MB

Addicted to War, subtitled Why The US Can’t Kick Militarism, is a 77 letter-sized page “illustrated exposé” by Joel Andreas published by Frank Dorrel with AK Press in 2002. Originally published in 1991, the book was out of print until Dorrel convinced Andreas to create an updated, post-9/11 version.
The book tells the history of U.S. foreign wars — from the Indian Wars to the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — in a comic book format. Including 161 reference notes, the book aims to demonstrate why the U.S. has been involved in more wars in recent years than any other country, and to explain who benefits from these military adventures, who pays and who dies.
