  • Adam Hodges, Carnegie Mellon University
Humans never engage in war without the mediating force of discourse. From the rhetorical saber rattling that precedes conflict through the diplomatic overtures that sue for peace, discourse plays an integral role in the outbreak, conduct and disputation of armed political conflict around the world. This chapter provides an introduction to this volume, which examines specific contexts around the world in which discourse operates in the service of war or to build alternative visions of peace.
