Wayne Lee 

When: Thu., April 14, 7 p.m. 2011

You know what people are good at? Killing each other. Warfare has existed as long as there has been civilization ... well, before that, really. Civilization was sort of needed to keep things from being in a state of warfare all the time. But how has war shaped the world in ways we might not understand? UNC-Chapel Hill history professor Wayne Lee explores this in his new book, Barbarians and Brothers: Anglo-American Warfare, 1500–1865, from Oxford University Press. Lee examines the conflicts of the 16th-century wars in Ireland, the English Civil War, colonial Anglo-Indian wars, the American Revolution and the American Civil War. Not only does Lee provide a new framework for understanding these conflicts, he combines a narrative of military campaigns with social and cultural analysis of the conflicts. Lee appears at the Regulator at 7 p.m. —Zack Smith
