Summary or Abstract : This dissertation explores United States warfare and its militarized culture during the latter half of the twentieth century. Analyzing American war culture, this dissertation focuses on the intersection of literature, militarization, capital, politics, and innovative weapons technologies to illuminate postmodern war. At the strategic level, weapons of contemporary warfare challenge the spatial limitations of their battlefield deployment. After the creation of nuclear and ballistic missiles during World War II, a concerted drive for military spatial dominance has typified U.S. weapons development. Further, postmodern warfare depends on increased integration between soldiers and their weapons to become coherent as weapons systems. The thesis of this dissertation delineates a cultural, historical shift in post-WWII warfare which extensively incorporates technoscience and displays a continual reliance on "high-tech" weapons; this activity betrays the orchestrated efforts for a "techno-fix" to American political, economic, and social problems, which I argue is a foundational component to postmodern war..
