Quiet On The Western Front Trench Warfare
5,601 wordsAll Quiet on the Western Front Chapter Summary By: Jesse Cody All Quiet on the Western Front is an anti-war novel from the opening chapters. Many critics of the novel in the early days after the publication of the novel blamed Remarque for writing for shock value.

Prisoner Of War Prisoners Of War
1,448 wordsThe term war crime brings to mind a combination of horrific images, concentration camps, ethnic cleansing, execution of prisoners, rape, and bombardment of cities.

2,088 wordsCold War My first inclination would be to answer the first question with a clear YES. But come to think of it, the causes of war really have not changed at all, or at least very little. Rather than changes, there has been a shift in the causes. The cause of war which has dominated the last 50 years was the cause of ideology. However, due to the recent end of the Cold War, this cause of war, has significantly declined and is almost trivial. The causes of war have shifted from mainly ideological o...

Human Rights Violations World War Ii
4,837 wordsThe conflict in the Balkans is interesting because for years, reporters and politicians have touted it as being the result of ancient ethnic hatred but that isnt the case. The people of this region lived together peacefully for centuries and any conflicts that have arose among people were based not on ethnic origin but other things like class and ruling party.

3,485 wordsThe term laws of war refers to the rules governing the actual conduct of armed conflict. This idea that there actually exists rules that govern war is a difficult concept to understand.

But during times of war murder of the enemy is allowed, which leads one to the question, if murder is permissible then what possible laws of war could there be? The answer t...

Play An Important Role Schools Of Thought
1,108 wordsTo prevent and resolve violent conflict we must understand the sources and logic of war. Two schools of thought currently dominate thinking on the causes of contemporary conflict. The first sees violence as a response to a range of grievances including systematic discrimination and human rights violations, inequalities in wealth and political power, or a scarcity of resources, particularly where these fall along existing social cleavages such as ethnicity or religion. The second characterizes wa...
