NEW: History of Political Warfare course offered this summer

Responding to student interest, IWP is offering a new course this summer: History of Political Warfare.

Taught as a directed study in a seminar environment by Professor J. Michael Waller, the course examines political warfare as an instrument of leadership and statecraft from antiquity to the present.

Students will study the political warfare of the ancient Hebrews, Greeks and Romans; ancient India and China; early and middle Christian civilizations including Rome and Byzantium and the Medieval and Renaissance-era European states; political warfare and the American Revolution; the French Revolution; the British empire; 20th Century totalitarian movements and regimes (Communist and Nazi); and political warfare of democracies.

Students should complete the course with a comfortable command of political warfare as a fundamental element of leadership and statecraft that they can integrate easily into a national security or diplomatic career.
