War No More: The Antiwar Impulse in American Literature, 1861-1914 by Cynthia Wachtell

Until now, scholars have portrayed America's antiwar literature as an outgrowth of World War I, manifested in the works of writers such as Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos. But in War No More, Cynthia Wachtell corrects the record by tracing the steady and inexorable rise of antiwar writing in American literature from the Civil War to the eve of World War I. The authors examined include Herman Melville, Walt Whitman, John William De Forest, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ambrose Bierce, Stephen Crane, Mark Twain, William Dean Howells, William James, Theodore Roosevelt, and others. Wachtell makes strikingly clear that pacifism had never been more popular than in the years preceding World War I. War No More concludes by charting the development of antiwar literature from World War I to the present, thus offering the first comprehensive overview of one hundred and fifty years of American antiwar writing.
