Marilyn Young talked about her findings as a teacher and a scholar about the wars of the 20th and 21st centuries. She had concluded that this progression of wars was less a progression than a continuation, a state of permanent war.

The title of this presidential address, “'I was thinking, as I often do these days, of war': The United States in the 21st Century,” was taken from a poem by C.K. Williams. This was the keynote luncheon address of the 2011 conference of the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations, “Waging War, Making Peace, Crossing Borders,” held at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center. close
