Militarizing tradition is a rousing critique of the yankee battle kingdom by means of a number one cultural commentator. Roberto J. González unearths troubling traits within the post-9/11 period, because the army business complicated infiltrates new arenas of cultural existence, from fiscal and academic arenas to relatives relationships. one of many nation’s best critics of the Human Terrain process software, González makes passionate arguments opposed to the engagement of social scientists and using anthropological concept and strategies in army operations. regardless of the pervasive presence of militarism and violence in our society, González insists that struggle isn't an inevitable a part of human nature, and charts a direction towards the decommissioning of culture.
