About this Unit
In 2017 this unit will be replaced by 102423 War. The soldier might almost challenge the prostitute for the title of "world's oldest profession." This course will examine how statespeople have understood the purposes of war throughout history, and in a global perspective. It will evaluate the practices and norms associated with war in different eras as well as the experiences of soldiers/sailors/airmen in different wars. It will assess the role of professional armies and warrior classes throughout history, as well as the role of navies, air forces, nuclear weapons, terrorism, guerrilla warfare, just war theory, and the doctrine of pre-emption over the last century. This unit utilizes history and political science methodologies to address these vital questions.
