In this course, students explore the evolution of the conduct of war in the western world from the sixteenth century to the present. Points of emphasis include the relationship between politics and war and between societies and their military institutions; the influence of political, social, economic, and technological change upon western methods of warfare; and the impact of the popularization and nationalization of war upon western nations' approach to modern conflicts. The conduct of specific wars, campaigns, and battles are addressed, but they are employed to illustrate these themes and are not, in and of themselves, the focus of the course.
