The American Military and Society

Announcing a new series in military history from UNT Press:

The American Military and Society
University of North Texas Press
Geoffrey Jensen, Series Editor

From the birth of the United States to today, the American military has served as more than just the sword and shield of the republic, but also as an unheralded sociological laboratory that initiated significant reforms within its confines and into the greater society that it sought to protect.  Works in The American Military and Society Series examine in a broad fashion subjects that investigate the military’s unique role as a societal influencer.  In particular, we welcome monograph submissions that grapple with the impact of the military on issues of race, gender, sexuality, religion, class, and politics, as well as environmental, economic, and cultural concerns. Also welcome are studies that examine how society or warfare challenged the military’s reform agenda. Those interested in publishing in the series should submit a proposal, CV, and sample chapters (if available) to the series editor, Geoffrey W. Jensen ( for consideration.  If accepted, authors will work closely with the editor to prepare their submissions for peer review. 

Series Editor: Geoffrey Jensen is an Associate Professor of History at Embry-Riddle, Prescott.  He is the co-editor of Beyond the Quagmire: New Interpretations of the Vietnam Conflict (University of North Texas Press, 2019) and the editor of The Routledge Handbook of the History of Race in the American Military, editor and contributor (Routledge, 2016).
