The contributors to this volume write about the distinction between militarism and militarization. Militarism, the more conventional concept, means the dominance of warlike values in society. Militarization is a much newer concept. It refers to the process by which civil society organizes itself for the production of violence. The contributors look at the militarization of the United States and Europe in the 20th century.
