GOVT156C CM - War

This course is a great books seminar on war. Students would be expected to read one book a week and then meet once weekly to discuss how the text illuminates the use of war as an instrument of politics, the evolution of warfare (perceptions, strategy, tactics, players, and technology), and the ethics of war. The books selected cover war from ancient times to modern as well as internal and international warfare. The course provides a comprehensive overview of war for students of international relations and for those interested in security studies more specifically.
