In his book How We Fight: Crusades, Quagmires, and the American Way of War (Little, Brown and Co., 2010), Dominic Tierney constructs an argument that is neither liberal nor conservative, neither dovish nor hawkish but offers insight into the kinds of war America has fought, and why some were hailed as successes while others were viewed as bleak and confusing experiences, and what the lessons may be for the future. Tierney is a Senior Fellow at FPRI and an associate professor of political science at Swarthmore College. He received his Ph.D. from Oxford University and is a regular contributor to The Atlantic Online.
