In its attempt to humanise modernity the West is also trying to humanize war. It is trying to purge it of those features such as waste and cruelty which writers such as Clausewitz believed to be intrinsic to true nature. The decision, as in Kosovo, to fight "humanitarian wars" is one illustration of this trend but so too is our wish to use technology to make it more humane, and the extent to which humanism ahs displaced metaphysics in defining the ethical relationship between war and warrior. The book asks whether the attempt can succeed or whether the West is deluding itself (not its enemies) in thinking that war can ever be made "humane".
