Riassunto: Veterans' Journeys Home is a vivid portrayal of military life and its aftermath for U.S. troops who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hearing the voices of those who have experienced combat and trauma, the reader journeys with women and men from basic training to active duty and return to civilian life. Highlighting the challenges our veterans face in today's complex and changing military culture, the book depicts the sometimes haunting and visceral memories of returning soldiers, reveals conversations with mental health providers, and offers an alternative approach to healing the emotional wounds of war. Sociologist and activist Holyfield lets the voices of combat tell the story of war. For any reader seeking a deeper understanding of the special human challenges of the recent wars, her book is valuable to veterans of all wars, their families, and mental health communities, policymakers, and any reader invested in seeing that our nation's veterans receive a true welcome home.
L'autore: Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Arkansas, Lori Holyfield is the author of Moving Up and Out: Poverty, Education and the Single Parent Family, with a Foreword by Hillary Clinton.
