For some, this marks a change from a perceived rift between military historians and other historians. Is there an increasing permeability and cross-pollination between the study of war and the military and the study of politics, gender, race or the environment, especially in the study of the history of the United States? How does an understanding of military history enrich research questions in other fields and how does training in other fields enhance the work of military historians? What implications does such a rapprochement have for the study of history across fields and for how and where historians do their work?
