War, Violence, and the Modern Condition
War and violence have been constitutive elements in the shaping of western civilization from antiquity to the present. PErceived interconnections between war, violence, and modernity have given rise to a number of theories from Walter Benjamin to Paul Virilio and Hans Magnus Enzensberger. This volume explores the specific role which war has played in the constitution of a modern mentality. IT is divided into three distinct but related parts: One dealing with issues of conceptualizing war, violence, and modernity/modernism; one is devoted to issues of the First World War as an exemplary experience in the 20th century; and one is concerned with issues of violence and its representation in the aftermath of the first modern war and up to the present.
