Refusing War, Affirming Peace not only fleshes out a fascinating chapter in Oregon’s history and illuminates a neglected facet of the nation’s World War II experience, but also, in all its concrete specificity, explores issues that must continue to engage every citizen concerned with the ongoing effort to achieve a more peaceful, humane, cultivated, and authentically democratic American society—goals so often invoked rhetorically and so rarely achieved in practice.”
