  • The American Way of War in History and Politics

    The American Way of War in History and Politics by Professor Brian McAllister Linn

    Published on Jan 19, 2016

    The first of two lectures in 2016 by Fulbright Scholars. This talk is about American Military History:
    The recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have provoked intense discussion both inside and outside the United States on the nature of a distinct 'American Way of War'.
    This lecture addresses the intellectual antecedents of this term and its role in shaping both scholarly and military ideas about how the USA conducts war.
    The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website:
    Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. There are currently over 1,900 lectures free to access or download from the website.
    The powerpoint for the presentation can be downloaded here:

    Interesting stuff.
