‘To Make Heaven Weep: Civilians and the American Way of War from 1608 to 2020’: War is defined as force on force conflict. So why have civilians so consistently been the deliberate target of coercive and conciliatory violence by U.S. military forces? The book explores U.S. military doctrine and asks why and how the U.S. military emphasised civilian protection in the late 20th century.

Neta C. Crawford is Professor and Chair of Political Science at Boston University. She is the author of more than two dozen peer reviewed articles and several books including Argument and Change in World Politics (2002), named Best Book in International History and Politics by the American Political Science Association, and Accountability for Killing: Moral Responsibility for America’s Post-9/11 Wars (2013).
