HI 103 - War and Innovation

This introductory course will investigate the ways in which Western warfare has both reflected and stimulated changes in Western politics, society, economics, and culture. The course will start by studying the ancient Mesopotamians and conclude with a discussion of contemporary insurgencies. Along the way, students will become familiar with theories of war, see how changes in the battlefield environment have changed the experience of war, discuss the extent to which the transformation of war has been the result of revolutionary or evolutionary change, and understand the significant place of war in Western history.

Note: Meets Historical Reasoning Learning Outcome (HIST)
