You are cordially invited to attend The George C. Marshall Lecture on Military History on Saturday, January 10, 2004, 5:00–6:30 P.M. in the Delaware Suite A of the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel.
Richard H. Kohn (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) will speak on the topic “The New American Militarization” Except for brief periods, the United States has been at war since the end of the 1930s. To what extent
have American society, the nation’s foreign and domestic policies and its institutions, and American behavior, become militarized as a result? What dangers lie ahead in a future that may be shaped by an indefinite “war on terrorism”? These are some of the questions that Kohn will consider in his lecture. The lecture is sponsored by the Society for Military History
and the George C. Marshall Foundation Presiding: Larry Bland, George C. Marshall Foundation, and Timothy K. Nenninger, Society for Military History
