In today’s security environment, governments face unbounded forms of warfare, with shifting alliances, new enemies, new technologies, and limitless battlefields. In her new book, How Everything Became War and the Military Became Everything (Simon & Schuster; August 9, 2016), Rosa Brooks traces the evolving role of the U.S. military to fight in today’s wars while serving a variety of support functions to promote stability and security worldwide. Drawing on years of experience as an advocate, a human rights lawyer, a State Department and Defense Department official, a law professor, and a foreign policy expert, Brooks examines the new American way of war and asks: what happens to the rules and rights that guide the use of force when the lines between war and non-war become increasingly blurred?

The Stimson Center convened a discussion with Rosa Brooks on her new book How Everything Became War and the Military Became Everything. Stimson Board Chairman Ambassador Lincoln Bloomfield Jr. interviewed Rosa Brooks and discussed the implications of the military’s expanded role in today’s globalized world.
