The country's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, its interventions around the world, and its global military presence make war, the military, and militarism defining features of contemporary American life. The armed services and the wars they fight shape all aspects of life-from the formation of racial and gendered identities to debates over environmental and immigration policy. Warfare and the military are ubiquitous in popular culture.

At War offers short, accessible essays addressing the central issues in the new military history-ranging from diplomacy and the history of imperialism to the environmental issues that war raises and the ways that war shapes and is shaped by discourses of identity, to questions of who serves in the U.S. military and why and how U.S. wars have been represented in the media and in popular culture.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This volume will enrich understandings of the centrality of war to contemporary American life. Intelligibly written and augmented by discussion questions, recommendations for further reading, and arresting images, the essays range widely and are a must-read in and out of the classroom."
--Richard H. Immerman "Director Emeritus, Temple University Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy "
"Kieran and Martini have done a truly magnificent job. The table of contents of At War is enough to make one want to immediately buy and use the book. I cannot praise highly enough the concept and the fulfilled ambition of the editors."--Marilyn B. Young "author of The Vietnam Wars, 1945-1990 "
