Michael S. Sherry (au). America’s intense preoccupation with war emerged on the eve of WW2. In the 50 years since the war, militarization has reshaped every facet of Amer. life: its politics, economics, culture, social relations, & place in the world. War justified the state’s growing size, power, & activism. But as nat. gov’t. waged “war on poverty,” “AIDS,” & “drugs,” it fostered expectations of “victory” that it could not fulfill, aggravating the distrust of fed. authority that leaders sought to overcome & encouraging Americans to conceive of war as something they waged against each other rather than against enemies abroad. The paradigm of war thereby corroded Amer. faith in nat. gov’t. & embittered their conflicts over class, race, gender, religion, & the nation’s very meaning.
