The Cold War (1945-1990) defined world politics for a generation. During that time, the United States (US) and United Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) developed huge and destructive military technology, including large nuclear arsenals. Why did the Cold War not turn hot? What factors prevented a third world war between the US and USSR during this turbulent period?
In her New Wars thesis (Week 4 reading-attached) Mary Kaldor outlines the changing character of war as
- The virtual disappearance of wars between states (interstate conflict)
- The decline in the deadliness of war
- The increase in the duration and occurrence of wars
To what extent does the emergence of ‘new wars’ relate to the innovations in technology?
