Benjamin Fleury-Steiner is associate professor of sociology and criminal justice at the University of Delaware. He is coeditor ofThe New Civil Rights Research, a Choice Outstanding Academic Title. He is a veteran of Operation Desert Storm and was an enlisted Military Police Officer in the U.S. Army from 1990-1993.
Disposable Heroes illuminates challenges facing many African American veterans. Rather than finding military service to be a path to upward mobility, these veterans fight just to survive. Drawing on interviews with veterans of Vietnam and recent wars, as well as national survey data, the book shows the ways America fails black veterans today.
