Revisiting a School of Military Government: How Reanimating a World War II-Era Institution Could Professionalize Military Nation Building
Patterson Rebecca

Regardless of the efficacy of such efforts, public statements by both President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suggest that nation building and related activities are preferred solutions in the war against terrorism. Yet despite the enormous complexity and ambition of such efforts, there remains a gap in the training and education for nation building.
