"This brilliant book is a thoughtful and profoundly original study of how war becomes an object of attachment and support in the United States. Jennifer Terry's discussion of wounding, injury, trauma, and prosthetics is one of the most fascinating, moving, and intensely generative studies I have read about how war is normalized, made everyday, embedded in practices and beliefs and affect(ion)s of ordinary folks." — Laleh Khalili, author of Time in the Shadows: Confinement in Counterinsurgencies
"With exceptionally crisp writing and sparkling erudition, Jennifer Terry paints a complex portrait of the nitty gritty of American militarism, biomedicine, and bio-inequality. By showing how attachment to salvation underwrites the continued expendability of life, she makes an important intervention that will be felt in American studies, cultural studies, science and technology studies, and beyond. This book soars." — Michelle Murphy, author of The Economization of Life
