About this title


Looks at the interwoven nature of politics and warfare and offers a critical view of modern warfare by exploring the civilian response to the trauma of World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

From Library Journal:

Kolko (Politics of War, Pantheon, 1990) has produced a dense book focusing on World Wars I and II, Korea, and Vietnam. In addition, he covers the Greek civil wars, the conflicts in the Philippines, and China. A main theme is that political and military leaders have consistently misunderstood and underestimated the wars they have set into motion. Kolko argues that since World War I, military technology has caused conflicts to be much longer and more destructive to civilians than ever before. In turn, as the civilian population became alienated, they played crucial roles in the outcome of wars and the history of this century. The effects of war upon civilians has also modified the social character of nations. While some may strongly disagree with Kolko's leftist views, this is an important book on an important subject offering many ideas worthy of discussion. As such, it should be on the shelves of all academic libraries.
