Essays presented here provide analyses of war in the post-modern era, specifically the Persian Gulf War. Scholars interested in war, applications of post-modern theory, the media, communications, a history of modern warfare, and international affairs will find the analyses illuminating, applicable as they are to any post-modern combative event, such as Chechnea or Bosnia. The introduction details the focus of each paper, and the concluding chapter connects them conceptually, offering a new, post-modern perspective of war.
