520    Rarely do academics and policymakers have the opportunity 
       to sit down together and contemplate the broadest 
       consequences of war. Our comprehension has traditionally 
       been limited to war's causes, execution, promotion, 
       opposition, and immediate political and economic ends and 
       aftermath. But just as public health researchers are 
       becoming aware of unexpected, subtle and powerful 
       consequences of human economic action, we are beginning to
       realize that war has many short- and long-term 
       consequences that we poorly understand but cannot afford 
       to neglect. These papers contribute to a growing discourse
       among academics, scholars and lawmakers that is 
       questioning and rethinking the nature and purpose of war. 
       By studying the effects of war on communities we can more 
       readily understand and anticipate the consequences of 
       present and future conflicts. Such an understanding might 
       well enable us to plan and execute military action with a 
       more clearly defined set of post-war goals in mind. 
       Whereas traditionally a government at war seeks the defeat
       of the adversary as its primary and often sole aim, 
       through a clearer understanding of war's effects other 
       aims will also become prominent. War, like surgery, could 
       gradually become more refined, could minimize damage in 
       ways that are currently unimaginable, and could involve an
       increasingly heavy responsibility to prepare for and 
       facilitate reconstruction. Projects such as this volume 
       are, of course, only the beginning. The more we understand
       the evolving nature of war, the better prepared we will be
       to protect communities from its harmful effects
