Since ancient times, human beings have pondered, justified, waged, and celebrated war, at the same time denouncing its ravages, seeking limits on its worst abuses, and striving to realize a more just and peaceful world. In this companion volume to an exhibit at the Fondation Martin Bodmer, Geneva, former war and diplomatic correspondent Pierre Hazan and others consider the many ways that this ongoing duality has unfolded over time, illuminated here through works of literature and fine art, anthropology, philosophy and psychoanalysis, law, and political science. Propaganda images, vintage maps and photos, and historical documents appear throughout, and the book's dust jacket opens into a 25 ? 19 inch poster.
