HSTY2628 - BOOM! The History of War
Semester 2, 2014 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Dr Frances Clarke, Dr John Gagnê
The Enlightenment promised to make war a thing of the past, replacing brute force with diplomacy and law. So why has the resort to arms been so depressingly persistent? How have societies rationalised war over time and how have ways of making or experiencing war changed? And to what extent has war been a driving force in history, propelling technological, medical, or social transformations? Examining one of humankind's most intractable problems, this unit presents war's surprising, troubling, and complicated history.
