Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
A look at Fayetteville, North Carolina, home to Fort Bragg, that poses the question,'Are we all military dependents?'

Fayetteville has earned the nicknames of Fatalville and Fayettenam. Unusual and not-sounusual features of the town include gross income inequalities, an extraordinarily high incidence of venereal disease, miles and miles of strip malls, and a history of racial violence. Through interviews with residents and historical research, Catherine Lutz immerses herself in the life of the town to discover how it has supported the military for over a century. From secret training operations that use civilians as mock enemies and allies to the satellite economy of the town, Lutz's history of Fayetteville reveals the burdens that military preparedness creates for all of us.

Review:
Some have called America a country made by war. But in this original and sympathetic study of a military city, Catherine Lutz shows how we are a country made by war preparation. Lutz focuses on Fayetteville, North Carolina, home to Fort Bragg, A large U.S. Army base. From training operations that use civilians as mock enemies and allies to racial violence to the low-wage satellite retail economy of the town, Lutz's history of Fayetteville reveals the burdens that military preparedness has created for all of us throughout the twentieth century. Her portrait of the town poses the provocative question "Are we all military dependents?"
