Description

Though taken for granted, there is a meaningful difference between conflict-specific, or era-particular, modes of warfare and the general nature of war. In this monograph, Major Daniel Maurer, author of Crisis, Agency, and Law in U.S. Civil-Military Relations, philosophically reflects on the fundamental nature of war and sets out to reinvigorate its study by emphasizing that no examination of warfare’s trend lines and character can be complete without first establishing a common universal reference for what war itself is—a question that seems unassuming, but is actually without a consensus among those that study or engage in combat.

Only with an updated and thoughtful understanding of war’s nature, he argues, will warfare in its many guises and forms be properly placed in a theoretical framework that illuminates deviances from norms or expectations, and which accounts for the phenomenon of war across time, place, and culture.

Audience

Military and Congressional leadership, military and international conflict historians, educators and students of military conflict.
