Module overview

This module continues the exploration of the impact of defense technologies and humanitarian concerns upon US foreign policy from end of the Cold War and the post-Cold War period, into the War on Terror. This includes the introduction of so-called ‘precision munitions’, drone warfare, and the use of covert special forces, as well as giving consideration to the way the military-entertainment complex and cable news has been leveraged to help sell American warfare.
