With the vast buildup and ever-expanding reach of the American military and "security apparatus" since 2001, the changes have been dizzying. When Historians Against the War, a small national group formed ten years ago in response to the Iraq invasion, decided to hold a national conference in Baltimore on April 5-7, we chose the title "The New Faces of War." With it, we hope to provide a forum for historians and activists to analyze what is new and not-new in American warmaking.
