Base Nation: How U.S. Military Bases Abroad
Harm America and the World
(Metropolitan Books, 2015)
American military bases encircle the globe. More than two decades after the end of the Cold War, the U.S. still stations its troops at nearly a thousand locations in foreign lands. These bases are usually taken for granted or overlooked entirely, a little-noticed part of the Pentagon's vast operations. But in an eye-opening account, Base Nation shows that the worldwide network of bases brings with it a panoply of ills - and actually makes the nation less safe in the long run.
David Vine received his Ph.D. in anthropology from the Graduate Center in 2006, and an M.A. in anthropology from the GC/Hunter College in 2003.
