This chapter discusses how war feeds on emergency and emergency on war. It highlights the presence of violence within this circular relationship between war and emergency and analyzes the function of violence in American civic war. The chapter also discusses how expansions of the power to make war in the twentieth century occurred within an even more encompassing constitutional development: the growth of general emergency powers.
