In modern societies we seem to witness a renaissance of
religious thought and religious passion that at times leads to
violent action. „Holy Wars“ are part of this „renaissance“,
but it is not at all clear whether this ‚holiness‘ is a relict
of religion, a return to religious thinking, or rather the new
face of a modernity that dons the mask of religion.

This collection aims at a better understanding of the
implications of modern warfare – its form and its causes – for
Gender Studies. Gender has on many occasions proven to be a
very useful interpretive tool in deciphering historical,
cultural and socio-economical subtexts of the modern world.
