Abstract

This edited collection of essays investigates the premise that war was fundamentally transformed between 1860 and 1890 due to the rise of mass conscript armies and industrialization, and that this transformation helped define modernity. The fifteen essays are grouped into three themes, each introduced by one of the editors: the relationship between politics and the military, the relationship between military and social change, and the intertwined processes of military and technological change. The papers were originally presented at the 44th International Conference on Military History organized by the German Military History Research Office (MGFA) and the Otto von Bismarck Foundation. While covering a geographic range from the United States to Europe to Japan, none of the essays are directly comparative.
