New Projects

I have started my second book-length project.

I am interested in scorched earth techniques: when they are used in war, why, and what their long-term consequences are. I am studying the use of these techniques in conflicts as different as the American Civil War and the 2022 Russian war against Ukraine. The IR Lab @ Amherst College, which I direct, is working on this very project.

Please email me if you want to connect on this project.
