The “American Century” is Over

Professor Andrew J. Bacevich of Boston University has become one of the strongest critical voices in military history and strategic studies today. Bacevich is known for his work on American militarism and his criticism of United States military strategy in the Iraq War and the Afghan War.

Bacevich’s recent work reassesses the history of U.S. military policy and strategy during the twentieth century. He has written a series of essays relating to his current book for a number of different news publications.

The Chronicle of Higher Education has published Bacevich’s latest essay, on the concept of the “American Century” and its continuing influence.
