    Hardcover ✓ Conscience MOBI Ì conscience pdf, Conscience MOBII was intrigued by the idea of four brothers all raised within the same home who chose such different paths when their country went to war I wanted to know by what process of decision making did they arrive at their own decision to either fight or object? Both positions required courage in WWI America And though the book provided copious detail regarding their actions and some quotes from letters the brothers had written to family members I still did not come away from the book feeling that I absolutely understood what experiences and reflection had brought ea

    Hardcover ✓ Conscience MOBI Ì conscience pdf, Conscience MOBII came across this title while reading another book on pacifists in England during WW I Having been a conscientious objector to the Vietnam War myself I was interested in reading Thomas' book as well I think the title is a bit of a misnomer It refers to 'two pacifists and two soldiers' But the two Thomas brothers who were soldiers in the War are not given anywhere near equal treatment The youngest Arthur is barely mentioned at all in factThat issue aside the author Louisa Thomas does a very credible job at culling out info mainly via family letters but also through some of Norman Thomas' writings of the way in which Norman and his brother Evan evolved into their opposition to the War What some reviewers found a tediousboring recitation of events I found to be a thorough and careful albeit somewhat dryacademic at times analysis The author was skilled at putting Norman's evolution to anti militarism and Socialism in the context of his family upbringing his religious

    Hardcover ✓ Conscience MOBI Ì conscience pdf, Conscience MOBIA rare nonfiction read for me outside of work The premise intrigued me a family in which two brothers are pacifists and two join up to fight in WWI On that score I found it a bit of a disappointment There's not really much family drama here though it is heartening to see that the sharply divided family even the two pacifists were sharply divided on many issues managed to maintain their affection and respect for each other Primarily though the book is about the most famous of the brothers Norman the perennial Socialist candidate for president of the US from the 1920s through the 1940s and the author's great grandfather with what amount to extended sidebars about his brothers It's not about Norman's socialism though but about the intellectual religious social and political foundations of his pacifism during WWI And on that score the book is a success We also get a pretty good picture of the larger elite antiwar movement
