Summary
"The subject of war in the twentieth century seems to develop itself in a rather logical manner through the essays which are here presented. The book is focused upon the social aspects of war, so that discussion of military affairs is slighted. This emphasis is intentional; the reason for it is that the editor feels that the military side of war has been adequately treated in countless volumes while the social side has not. Besides, the social aspects of war are more important than its military aspects. We can not learn very much about war by studying battles. If we would really understand war we must know how its roots spread through the whole of our society, we must know what dislocations it produces in every social institution, and we must try to conceive of the changes which it works in the lives of every adult and every child of the warring nation; by comparison with such things, battles are insignificant"--Introduction.
