Adj. Associate Professor and Director of Teaching and Learning Cornell in Washington
I specialize in the industrialized total wars of the 20th century and the asymmetric responses (guerrilla warfare, insurgency, and terrorism) to those wars that evolved after 1945. I have written books on the British Army in World War I, the Philippine-American War, the Boxer Rebellion in China, and American military encounters with other cultures.
I'm the series editor for Cornell University Press' Battlegrounds: Cornell Studies in Military History
