University of Tulsa History professor Jeremy Kuzmarov earlier this year gave a presentation titled, “Police Training and the
Mercenarization of US Warfare in the War on Terror,” which was based on his latest book, Modernizing Repression: Police Training and
Nation Building in the American Century. He also wrote The Myth of the Addicted Army.
He gave his presentation at the Third National Conference of Historians Against the War at Towson University in the spring.
His presentation was part of a panel discussion called, Distancing Acts: Imperial War from Counterinsurgency to Drones. In 2010, George Mason University’s History News Network named Jeremy Kuzmarov as a Top Young Historian for his outstanding contributions to the discipline in his area of research.
