Modernity and War explores and assesses the development of war in the modern period

Modernity and War explores and assesses the development of war in the modern period. The author explains the violence of the modern form of war by analysing cultural trends in Western states and their connections to racism, nationalism and narcissism. The text also explains how the practice of air warfare distances Western citizens from the consequences of contemporary military violence.

Lawrence (international politics, U. of West of England) shows the contradiction between Enlightenment assumptions concerning human progress and the West's involvement in mass violence. He goes on to argue that the real cultural beliefs of Western states have been far removed from the proclaimed moral doctrines of Western philosophy. The book concludes with a discussion of the effect that nuclear weapons have had on the modernist view of war.
