Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by Jeremy Black, emeritus professor of history at the University of Exeter, to discuss the new paperback edition of his book, The Short History of War. They chat about how warfare has transformed the social, political, cultural, and religious aspects of humanity across time, the significance of warfare more broadly, and the ways in which cultural understandings of conflict have lasting consequences in societies across the world. They also discuss the fundamental impact of weaponry on modes of war and what the future of warfare will look like.
