Prof. John A. Lynn II

  • In his new book "Another Kind of War: The Nature and History of Terrorism," History Department Emeritus Professor John Lynn seeks to contribute to "civic education and, in a sense, civil defense." The difficult - yet critical - lesson Professor Lynn instills is that “In dealing with terrorism, wisdom consists of knowing what not to do, as well as what should be done.”

  • Professor Emeritus John Lynn has been awarded the Samuel Eliot Morison Prize, the highest award that the Society for Military History bestows.
