Although the paradoxical reality of warfare may elude definition, since antiquity war has been a constitutive element of western culture; seen from a historical perspective, it gives access to a broad array of tensions between various models for knowledge and kinds of tradition. The essays in this volume approach the phenomenon of war from antiquity to Clausewitz from the perspective of a variety of disciplines. Particular attention is given to texts, images, and their interaction.
