I am happy to report that my review essay on three new books on war and culture in early modern Europe has been published in the American Historical Review (AHR).

The books under review are:

Christy Pichichero. The Military Enlightenment: War and Culture in the French Empire from Louis XIV to Napoleon. Ithaca, N.Y.: Cornell University Press, 2017. Pp. xi, 301. $49.95.

Thomas Dodman. What Nostalgia Was: War, Empire, and the Time of a Deadly Emotion. (Chicago Studies in Practices of Meaning.) Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2018. Pp. xi, 275. $35.00.

This review essay was selected to appear as a featured review in the latest issue of AHR. Here is the full citation: American Historical Review 123:5 (December 2018): 1629-1633.
