The constancy of American war, and its paradoxical erasure in U.S. politics and culture, were central concerns of Marilyn Young, the preeminent historian of war’s place in modern U.S. history. This roundtable on Making the Forever War, a new collection of Young’s most important writings, will explore how endless war came about, the nature of its deadly consequences, and how it became embedded and invisible for most Americans.
This lecture is free and open to the public.
