Warfare, Society, and the Military
While we wish for a world at peace, war—to-date at least—seems to be an enduring part of the human condition. With more than 50 conflicts currently being fought around the world, we should try to understand the forces that cause them, how they are waged, and how we can end and prevent wars. Once again, Carolina Public Humanities returns to Flyleaf Books to explore these questions in this mid-week series on military history and topics in peace, war, and defense.
