In 2000, Washington Post reporter Dana Priest wrote a series of articles on the rising importance of the regional com- batant commanders, comparing them to modern-day “proconsuls” whose Roman forebears served as regional governors and commanders in chief of their military forces. Reveron’s Amer- ica’s Viceroys examines this comparison, providing a historical and contempo- rary analysis of contemporary regional combatant commanders and their ris- ing influence in the foreign policy– making arena.
