Patterns of violence in the world system are rarely constant. Two cases in point are global wars and contemporary waves of terrorism. Global wars emerged only in 1494 and may now be a relic of the past. Contemporary waves of terrorism began to emerge in the French Revolutionary Wars and are still very much with us. A co-evolutionary model, focusing on the reciprocal interactions among political-economy, political and military organizations, weaponry, and war, helps to explain the emergence of both phenomena.
