War has been one of the few constants in human history, waged by nations, tribes, and other factions for numerous reasons--some valid and noble, some questionable. This area seeks to explore the ways that
wars--declared and undeclared, just and unjust, sacred and profane, fictional and "real"--have impacted the social, economic, technological, ideological, and other aspects of culture.
