    Genre: History​
    For thousands of years, military engagements between opposing nations and societies have had important effects on all aspects of human civilization. While the most direct and recognizable impacts of war are the victories and defeats that shape the course of history, warfare also affects human culture in ways that are not always appreciated or understood.

    Surprising as it may seem, war often creates as well as destroys. As the most complex of all human endeavors, warfarefrom ancient to modernhas spurred the growth of essential new technologies; demanded the adoption of complex economic systems; shaped the ideology and culture of nations; promoted developments in art and literature; and spread faith across the globe.

    Consider, for example, just a few intriguing facts about the important role of warfare in human history:

    The banking and credit systems that are mainstays of our culture developed as a specific response to the needs of war.
    Although wars often appear to emerge from conflict within political systems, in many cases such as the Ottoman Empire and the European nation-statesthe political systems themselves emerged from the activity of war.
    The New England colonies in the United States would probably never have survived economically if it were not for huge profits from piracy and privateering.
    Here, then, is a highly provocative encounter with history. In War and World History, celebrated military historian and Professor Jonathan P. Roth of San Jos State University offers you a fresh and challenging insight into human societies through a deep look at the effects and roles of war.

    These 48 lectures take you on an exploration of humanitys interface with armed conflict across five continents. But this is far from a traditional approach to military events. This panoramic series is not the history of battles or military campaigns, but the story of the intimate interconnections of war with human cultures and societies and how these connections have shaped history.

    As a penetrating view of the many contexts and meanings of warfare, War and World History is for anyone interested in understanding the evolution of our civilization, past and present.


    The Global Terrain of Human Conflict

    Huge in scope and fascinating in its details, War and World History explores the complex effects of culture, economics, politics, and religion on warand wars influences on them. In this context, you chart the colorful history of the practice and methodology of warfare.

    As your guide, Professor Roth is unusually well qualified to present a broad-minded view of these events. A war protester in his youth, he later served for six years in the New York Army National Guard, then became an acclaimed scholar of warfare. With his richly informed perspective, the lectures unfold as an enthralling inquiry into the nature of organized conflicts.

    In probing the links between evolving human cultures and warmaking, the course reveals the ways in which the fate of civilizations is determined by the fate of military events.

    But theres another core feature of the lectures: Seen through the lens of armed struggle, this is world history itself at its most vivid and compelling. You witness the dramatic rise of organized societies, economic systems, empires, and nations, as well as world-shaping creeds, ideologies, cultural forms, and developing conceptions of religion, citizenship, and social identity.

    Professor Roth makes the great scope of the material directly understandable by focusing the lectures around the core themes of economics, politics, religion, and social culture in their relation to warfare.

    War Pays Its Way
    In the 8th century B.C. the Phoeniciansfamous as tradersstaked out maritime colonies across the Mediterranean. Their goal: vast profit from silver, slaves, and other commodities. But this trade came about through warfare and was pursued in support of warfare. Backed by the first warships designed specifically to fight other ships, the Phoenicians trade in silver funded the armies of the Assyrian Empire.

    This deep interweaving of warfare with economies forms a theme you investigate across the arc of history. In selected lectures you learn

    how the cost of a single medieval castle consumed as much as a third of a kingdoms entire revenue;
    how bitter conflict over war budgets led to the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215;
    how Renaissance credit and banking empires arose in response to the financial strains of war;
    how the victory of liberal democracies over totalitarian regimes in the 20th century was due to successful management of capitalist economies.
