How Everything Became War and the Military Became Everything: Tales from the Pentagon
Published by Simon & Schuster
In the afterglow of America’s wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, Rosa Brooks journeys to the heart of a post-9/11 military to discover a resilience that spells anything but retreat. In How Everything Became War and the Military Became Everything: Tales from the Pentagon, Brooks documents a Pentagon that now oversees the most pervasive military the world has ever seen. She tracks pirate hunters in the Arabian Sea, advisers in the Persian Gulf, and cyber warriors on American soil to lucidly explain the militarization of pax Americana—and how it is shaping the early decades of the 21st century.
