Ronald R Krebs
Professor Ron Krebs (Ph.D., Columbia University, 2003) conducts research at the juncture of international relations and comparative politics, with particular interests in the origins and consequences of international conflict and military service and in language and politics. He is the author of Fighting for Rights: Military Service and the Politics of Citizenship (Cornell University Press, 2006), and is co-editor of In War's Wake: International Conflict and the Fate of Liberal Democracy (Cambridge University Press, 2010). Prof. Krebs is currently working on two major projects: (1) Liberty's Trial: International Conflict and the Health of Democracy, which explores the long-run effects of conflict on democratic institutions and processes; and (2) Narrative and the Making of US National Security, which seeks to explain the rise and fall of dominant national security narratives in the United States and to show how those narratives have shaped US foreign policy. See Professor Krebs' website for more detailed information on these and other projects and for a full listing of his publications.
