The faces of war are many, encompassing women, children, and men, soldiers and civilians. Their stories appear in history, literature, and art, from earliest times to events reported in today's newspapers. The essays comprising this volume explore the human face of war from multiple perspectives--psychology, literature, history, and law--and through the eyes of many societies and cultures--American and Iraqi, English and French, Roman and Jew. What emerges is a mosaic of war's Many Faces that reveal the human condition and its response to the most challenging of life's many experiences--the violence of War.
