Reviews

''This benchmark volume examines how the U.S. military has upped its attention to local cultures in order to win wars [...] and enhanced its reputation by providing humanitarian relief and protecting heritage. Expert analysts [...] offer sophisticated treatments of overarching issues and specific cases in this concise, excellent, and very timely account.'' - Richard Kurin, Under Secretary for History, Art, and Culture, Smithsonian Institution
