Book Review: Rising Up From Indian Country by Ann Durkin Keating

I reviewed Ann Durkin Keating's new book on Fort Dearborn for Gapers Block:
Whether she intended it or not, Keating's book is timely and relevant in light of the state of modern warfare. Today unmanned US drones kill suspected terrorists (and whoever they may be with) in Pakistan and Yemen, local police in Mexico battle rival drug cartels with ex-soldiers in their ranks willing to block highways with smoldering cars and piles of dead bodies, and the Syrian military has wiped out pockets of anti-government rebels across the country along with their wives and children.
