Reluctant Warriors: Canadian Conscripts and the Great War by Patrick M Dennis

Oxford: Oxford University Press, James Matthews's Reluctant Warriors examines conscripts, who were the most utilized type of soldier during the Spanish Civil War. Matthews self-consciously continues the recent trend in Spanish Civil War historiography of exploring the experience of the "ordinary Spaniard. Matthews's narrow focus is on the conscript in the National and Republican armies in the areas surrounding Madrid.

He believes this comparative study to be representative of the 1.

The Reluctant Warrior -- GMV

He predictably argues that the Nationalist were "more effective at managing its conscripts than the Republican Popular Army" p. Matthews employs various theoretical frameworks to shape his study. He relies on a comparative framework established by Marc Bloch. Matthews analyzes the different ways both sides mobilized, trained, fed, disciplined, and rewarded conscripts, amongst other things. The interplay between the two sides--such as the active encouragement of enemy soldiers to defect--plays a central role in Matthews's analysis. Mostly, however, Reluctant Warriors charts the parallel paths the two armies developed as the Spanish Civil War evolved.

The first chapter typifies what Matthews does in his work. Republican conscripts called into service for the Popular Army were viewed as second-rate.

Bestselling Series

Volunteerism for the army represented a victory for the proletariat and its movement towards a more equitable society on every level. Conscription, in which men were forced to fight, undercut that image , and was therefore downplayed bycommunist and anarchist commissars and officers in the expansive Republican propaganda machine.

During the "Hundred Days" campaign of the First World War, over 30 percent of conscripts who served in the Canadian Corps became casualties. With calls for choice and civil rights, they re-segregate our schools, and institute zero-tolerance discipline policies in their no-excuses charter schools.

They push for larger classes in public schools but send their own children to schools with no more than 16 students in a room. Corporate philanthropies anoint teacher "leaders" who are willing to echo reform themes - sometimes even endorsed by our national teacher unions. But the truth leaks out. Charter schools, sold on the basis that traditional schools are broken, rarely do better , and in many cases do worse than the schools they replace.

Teach For America novices turn over at such high rates that they promote instability wherever they go. The destruction of due process feeds high turnover, as is already seen at many charter schools where it is absent or weak. And the instability and churn that is the hallmark of corporate reform is damaging to students and their communities. Teachers are beginning to react. We have known all along that test-based accountability would yield data by the truckload, but data is blind without wisdom. Our unions have become accustomed to serving members who are largely uninvolved and deactivated. A union with an inactive membership is like a sleeping athlete.

Until the athlete is awoken and in motion, the body is inert. We need to get the adrenaline flowing, so our unions can engage in movement once again. Our colleagues in Chicago showed us how this can be done - and they are still at work, organizing. Teachers are lending support to the Opt Out movement.

This year, tens of thousands of students are opting out in New York and across the country, and teachers at some schools are risking their jobs by opting out as well. When the data-hungry machine is not fed tests, it is starved and will die. The Washington teachers union just voted to support families who opt out. The Network for Public Education has issued a call for Congressional hearings this spring. After more than a decade of NCLB, isn't it time we had some true accountability for all these tests that have been running our schools?

Letters are being collected now to be sent to members of Congress.

But when that is made impossible, then we have no choice but to get organized and fight, for ourselves, and for the students we serve.
