The dominion of war

First published in 2004



Work Description

With the great exceptions of the Revolution, the Civil War, and World War II, Americans seldom think about how military conflict has fundamentally shaped the United States. The Dominion of War offers a startling new perspective on American history. By moving America's forgotten conflicts—its imperial wars—to center stage, the authors explain how war, above all else, has been the primary means by which people of North America have defined American society for the last half-millennium.
