GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany (Feb. 15, 2022) - James K. Wither, Professor of Security Studies and Terrorism at the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies, recently published a book chapter in “Encyclopedia of Violence, Peace, and Conflict.” “Trends in Warfare” examines the trend toward total forms of war in the 19th and 20th centuries, the impact of nuclear weapons, the decline in the number and magnitude of interstate wars, and the rise of irregular and hybrid forms of warfare. In addition to an analysis of developments in technology and strategic thinking, the article traces the impact of political, economic and social changes on warfare. The final sections discuss the main themes in the evolution of warfare in the first decades of the 21st century.
