Sample text

An expatriate Anglophone with socialist sympathies, he was attuned to key strains of antimilitarist ideology, which he effectively packaged and redeployed in fictional forms for English-speaking readers accustomed to seeing militarism as an essentially Continental phenomenon. The word “militarism” appears to have entered English a generation before Joyce used it in his tirade against the reluctant London printer. Coincidentally, it made its linguistic flight from the same political conflagration whose embers were still smoldering in 1904 when Joyce arrived in Trieste.

He relies upon a fairly reductive distinction between armed “glory” and martial “disease,” a binary that depends on no objective criteria, only whether the army in question belongs to one’s admired ally or sworn enemy. 5 Meanwhile, the medical metaphor establishes another deceptive quality of the term, one that distracts from Joyce and Ideas of Militarism · 25 the physical horrors of military culture by calling attention to its abstract notions of honor. The analogy assumes a clear contrast between a presumably admirable activity of the human spirit and a wretched condition of the human body.

His chapter “Militarism in England and Germany” deliberately brings together the two rivals who each regarded the other at the time as overtly militaristic and aggressive societies. The juxtaposition alone goes against the grain of the contemporary jingoism and sensationalist journalism that had already set England and Germany on a collision course toward war. Ferrero begins by addressing the widespread misperception among English readers of Prusso-Germany as the most bellicose nation in Europe.
