Peace Not Terror includes essays by Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Dave Dellinger, Staughton Lynd, William Sloane Coffin, H. Bruce Franklin, David Cortright, David Harris, and others, including veterans of the Gulf War and the Iraq War. Many of these writers contributed to her earlier book, Against the Vietnam War: Writings By Activists (Rowman & Littlefield, 2007). The argument of the book is that a peaceful solution to the problems caused by the attacks of September 11, 2007 can be found. The hope is that there are so many people who are willing to contribute to a book such as this one, and who are doing such wonderful work. They span the generations. The peace demonstrations all over the world before the war against Iraq testify to people's wishes, people's feelings. This is the hope for the future.

«We veterans know that this war is not being sanitized on the nightly news. It has nothing to do with ther liberation of the people of Iraq; instead it has everything to do with the subjugation and domination of these people in the name of U.S. imperial economic and strategic interests.»

«This remarkable and indispensable book against U.S. militarism includes essays by Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Staughton Lynd, Dave Dellinger, and many others, including Iraq War veterans. These invaluable members of the peace movement show in their writings—and by their own personal stories—the way out of the cycle of violence that the U.S. military response to the events of 9/11 has created. From William Sloane Coffin's sermon on love delivered the Sunday after 9/11, to Jeff Jones, former Weatherman and now environmental actvist, who writes of the need to eliminate our oil consumption to prevent both global warming and war in the Middle East, these essays form a moving and inspiring guide to peace on this earth.»

«In Peace Not Terror, Mary Susannah Robbins performs an important public service. By editing and publishing this collection of essays, Robbins not only brings together the voices of the antiwar movement in one user-friendly volume, but she reminds us of the movement's startling scale and diversity. In this book we hear from scholars and statesmen, victims and veterans. Most of all, we hear from patriots—people who know that preemptive war, the backdoor draft, torture, indefinite detention, and extraordinary rendition are un-American. Every citizen should read this book.»

«Peace Not Terror captures the voices of today's leading thinkers and activists in the U.S. peace movement. The collection of essays is as varied and powerful as the reasons why it is imperative to do away with our culture of militarism in order to embrace peace. This book will affirm and strengthen the position of the antiwar reader, and will challenge those who still believe in war as a viable means to attain peace. It is a brilliant book, and an absolute must read.»

«Mary Susannah Robbins's powerful book is the answer to those who ask what happened to the antiwar movement. The voices of that movement, past and present, speak passionately in the pages of Peace Not Terror, moving the reader to pay attention, to act and to speak out. It is essential reading in these dark and dangerous days, for it insists not only on the possibility but the necessity of protest.»
