World War II was the most lethal conflict in human history. Never before had a war been fought on so many diverse landscapes and in so many different ways. The Second World Wars examines how combat unfolded in the air, at sea, and on land to show how distinct conflicts among disparate combatants coalesced into one interconnected global war. Drawing on 3,000 years of military history, Hoover Institution Senior Fellow Victor Davis Hanson argues that despite its novel industrial barbarity, neither the war's origins nor its geography were unusual. Nor was its ultimate outcome surprising. The Axis powers were well prepared to win limited border conflicts, but once they blundered into global war, they had no hope of victory. An authoritative new history of astonishing breadth, The Second World Wars offers a stunning reinterpretation of history's deadliest conflict.

This week's meeting of the Hoover Institution's Working Group on the Role of Military History in Contemporary Conflict, chaired by Victor Davis Hanson. From its origins as a library and archive, the Hoover Institution has evolved into one of the foremost research centers in the world for policy formation and pragmatic analysis. It is with this tradition in mind, that the "Working Group on the Role of Military History in Contemporary Conflict" has set its agenda—reaffirming the Hoover Institution's dedication to historical research in light of contemporary challenges, and in particular, reinvigorating the national study of military history as an asset to foster and enhance our national security. By bringing together a diverse group of distinguished military historians, security analysts, and military veterans and practitioners, the working group seeks to examine the conflicts of the past as critical lessons for the present.

The Hoover Institution Press today released Invisible Slaves by Kurt Hauser, an effort to bring public awareness to modern-day slavery. In the book, Hauser writes that, far from being a historical relic, slavery is very much still with us, as human trafficking continues to shape world markets and cause unfathomable suffering, in the form of violence, sexual assault, isolation, and dehumanization. The author appeals to governments and ordinary citizens alike to meet this humanitarian crisis with awareness, action, and compassion.

At a time when entitlement spending poses a fiscal challenge unlike any in our nation’s history, Hoover Institution Senior Fellow John Cogan addresses the question of how and why these federal programs have grown so large and have become so far removed from the ideals on which they were founded in The High Cost of Good Intentions: A History of U.S. Federal Entitlement Programs, released today. A comprehensive history of federal entitlement programs, Cogan presents a history of major federal entitlement programs from the beginning of the Republic to modern times, showing how they evolved and explaining the forces that caused their evolution. Combining economics, history, and political science with the law, the book provides a unifying explanation for the remarkably common evolutionary path nearly all entitlements have followed during two hundred years of US history.

From concept to reality: A first look at our new space. The two-story, 55,000 gsf new building, located next to #Stanford’s historic main quad and Hoover Tower, adds capacity in both offices and conferencing facilities in order to meet demand for policy-oriented research and dissemination. Named after its primary and most generous benefactors, David and Joan Traitel, the building–with its red clay tile roof, stone facing, and native oak landscaping–fits seamlessly into the neighborhood, and will be formally dedicated next month. #HooverInstitution #architecture

Remembering #911: “We should change the inflection in our voices when we say, that's history. It's a phrase we hear all the time, and people use it to denote the fact that they think something is over and it's now irrelevant...it’s really important to understand history and to understand what's happened in the past and learn from it." —George Shultz #neverforget #September11 #HooverInstitution #Stanford #history

Milton Friedman’s contributions to both economic science and public policy made him one of the most influential economists of the twentieth century. He was a founding member of the Mont Perelin Society, a cornerstone of the Chicago school of economics; the author of scientific works on monetary policy as well as of the widely popular Capitalism and Free and Free to Choose; the winner of the 1976 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences; and, for the last thirty years of his life, a fellow at the Hoover Institution. Milton Friedman on Freedom, edited by Robert Leeson and Charles Palm, attempts to present Friedman’s views on freedom in a comprehensive and coherent way through a curated collection of fifteen of his essays. The essays, authored during the course of nearly forty years, illustrate his thinking about the value that formed the moral foundation of his intellectual life.

Featured profile: our library & archives | Founded in 1919, the Hoover Institution Library & Archives emerged from Herbert Hoover’s firsthand experience administering relief operations during World War I. The future US president donated $50,000 to his alma mater, Stanford University, to create a repository for the “documentary history bearing on the war." Hoover recruited scholars to develop a robust collecting program to document the causes and consequences of political conflict with the ultimate goal of promoting peace. Today, the Library & Archives that bear Hoover’s name boast nearly one million volumes and more than six thousand archival collections—in sixty-nine languages from more than one hundred fifty countries—pertaining to war, revolution, and peace in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The Institution's resources support a vibrant international community of scholars and a broad public interested in the meaning and role of history. #HooverInstitution #Stanford #history #miltonfriedman #friedrichhayek @Stanford
