LLS 1307 - War

Credits: 3 hrs
What is war? Why do countries engage in war? When is war necessary? Can war be just? Can war be profitable? In answering these questions we will analyze the economic, ideological, moral, political and religious reasons for engaging in war. We will focus on diverse case studies (specific examination of wars): the 2 World War; Israel/Palestine conflict; Cuban revolution; the Algerian War of Liberation; the Vietnam War; La Violencia-Columbia; the Rwanda Genocide of 1994 and the Iraq war. This focus will allow us to learn not only about the wars but also about the culture of the specific country which is crucial in understanding war.
