Nathan Hodge is a staff reporter for the Wall Street Journal with a specialty in the defense and national security beats. Armed Humanitarians traces how the idea of "nation building" came into vogue and how think tanks, government seminars, and the press sold this new doctrine to the Pentagon, The State Department, and the American public. Hodge presents the new era of America's relationship with the world that began with the invasion of Afghanistan as a flawed experiment, and shows how armed humanitarianism strains American resources, deepens our reliance on outsourcing and private contractors, all of which re-enforce a new imperialism which weakens the American Republic.
