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.
