About the Edition

Is war the antithesis of peace and the soldier the opposite of the citizen? For three hundred years scholars have contributed to this kind of understanding of politics, war, and populations. Starting with the work of Clausewitz, war has been constituted as a space of exception that exceeds the political and which is exterior to the national polity. More recently, scholars including Arendt, Foucault, and Agamben have proposed a different relationship between politics and war. They suggest that war has actually constituted and shaped our peace. Despite this important intervention, the military remains marginal in academic and public conceptions of citizenship, while the soldier is understood to be a peripheral and exceptional player. Based on extensive archival research in previously restricted military files that cover a five-decade span, my research demonstrates that modern forms of citizenship have their origins in times of war in the image of the warring worker citizen. The soldier is not a figure associated with democracy or political rights---defining features of modern politics in western nations---and yet paradoxically, it was through the mass sacrifice of the population in service to the nation during WW2 that post-war citizenship was assembled. Welfare was a reward for the serving citizen, and a means to harness the labour and allegiance of a divided population for the nation. Social entitlements were institutionalized in the welfare state but had their genesis in national war work. New practices of this magnitude could not refrain from reshaping the practitioners themselves, and indeed the dramatic impacts of the mass military on citizenship are centrally responsible for the eventual decline of militarism in Canada. By collectivizing risk, expanding education, and nationalizing politics and culture, the welfare state reshaped geographies of work and identities of citizens such that today the military histories of citizenship are hidden in plain view. If the soldier performed as iconic national worker-citizen during WW2, s/he now stands astride a chasm between workfare and a re-emergent militarism. Long missing in action in academic and public accounts of social change, the soldier plays a central role in the puzzle of social citizenship.
