Media analyst and author Norman Solomon presents his new book, _War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death_.

Norman Solomon is a widely-read columnist on media and politics. His weekly column "Media Beat" has been in national syndication since 1992. He is the founder and Executive Director of the Institute for Public Accuracy, a national consortium of policy researchers and analysts. Solomon has appeared as a guest on many media outlets, including the PBS "NewsHour with Jim Lehrer", CNN, MSNBC, Fox News Channel, C-SPAN, public radio’s "Marketplace", and NPR’s "All Things Considered", "Morning Edition", and "Talk of the Nation". A collection of Solomon’s columns won the George Orwell Award for Distinguished Contribution to Honesty and Clarity in Public Language, presented by the National Council of Teachers of English. _War Made Easy_ is his tenth book.

Copies of _War Made Easy_ will be available for purchase and signing.

"Read one passage each night to your children to protect them from the brain-snatchers and dummyfication zombies of America's news media of the living dead." - Greg Palast, author of _The Best Democracy Money Can Buy_

"_War Made Easy_ exposes and explains the lies and deceptions that have misled our nation into vile and bloody disasters from Vietnam to El Salvador to Iraq; it reveals the frequent cowardice and culpability of the U.S. media that often behaves as a propaganda arm of the Pentagon." - John Stauber, author of _Weapons of Mass Deception_ and _Banana Republicans_
