Rosa Brooks - How Everything Became War and the Military Became Everything: Tales from the Pentagon

In her third book, Brooks examines the destabilizing shift in boundaries between war and peace that have made conflicts difficult to contain geographically and almost impossible to end. From her perspective as a Georgetown University law professor, daughter of anti-war protestors, wife of a Green Beret, and the former Pentagon special coordinator for rule of law and humanitarian policy, Brooks shows that the conventional military is increasingly overtaxed with nontraditional duties, while its most basic responsibilities are complicated by the effort to identify an enemy that doesn’t wear a uniform or use a recognizable weapon. Without clear boundaries, Brooks warns, America’s wars threaten the very foundations the country was founded on.
