War and Peace in the Modern Age: GOVT 50

Web site: http://dartmouth.smartcatalogiq.com/en/current/orc/Departments-Programs-Undergraduate/Government/GOVT-Government/International-Relations/GOVT-50-04

This course is designed to acquaint students with the fundamentals of war and peace; that is, with the political uses of military power and the respective roles of military and civilian leaders in formulating and implementing foreign policy. We will also investigate how war affects civil society's social movements and how the characteristics of states' domestic politics arrangements affect or constrain the ways that leaders choose to execute their most preferred strategies. Finally, we will also try to come to an understanding of what war is actually like for those, both combatant and non-combatant, that must participate in war on a daily basis.

Not offered in 2013-2014; may be offered in 2014-2015

International Security: GOVT 53

Other topics may include the obsolescence of major war, collective security, nuclear proliferation, and escalation of regional wars.
