Book summary

Over the last three decades the historian Gabriel Kolko has redefined the way we look at modern warfare and its social and political effects. Century of War gives us a masterly synthesis of the effects of war on civilian populations and the political results of these traumatizing experiences in the twentieth century. "An intensely rich book. . . the clarity of Kolko's vision emerges from a careful reading, as does the importance of what he has to say." -- The American Academy of Political and Social Science "Century of War is at once an extremely ambitious, eloquent, timely, and engaging volume." -- The Canadian Historical Review "The totality of his argument is persuasive. I hope that many leaders and formers of public opinion will take the trouble to read this book, as it makes a crucial contribution to thinking about the realities of war and its aftermath". -- Toronto Globe and Mail "This provocative work will engage general readers as well as specialists." -- Publishers Weekly [via]
