How war and peace became just war

Hosted by  • 

Rosa Brooks is the child of anti-war parents who protested against the Gulf War before she became a lawyer, married a soldier and served for two years as one of the highest-ranking civilian officials in the Pentagon. She visited war zones, was threatened by anti-American rebels, watched flight operations from the bridge of an aircraft carrier during a hurricane.  And — law professor that she is -- she sat in on discussions that shook her faith in this country's adherence to international order, including the Geneva Conventions.  Those are just a few of the experiences she's written about in How Everything Became War and the Military Became Everything: Tales from the Pentagon.
