Contributors to this volume explore the dynamic between war and the physical environment from a variety of provocative viewpoints. The subjects of their essays range from conflicts in colonial India and South Africa to the U.S. Civil War and twentieth-century wars in Japan, Finland, and the Pacific Islands. Among the topics explored are: - the ways in which landscape can influence military strategies - why the decisive battle of the American Civil War was fought - the impact of war and peace on timber resources - the spread of pests and disease in wartime.

"Given the continuing prominence of war and armed conflict in the daily headlines, this is a timely and valuable addition to our thinking about why wars happen, what intended or unintended effects they may have, and how--like everything else--they touch on humankind's relationship with the earth."
