This chapter begins by presenting the main arguments of the book, which challenge the conventional view that the human costs of war can be understood as a single, aggregate total. To account fully for the costs of war we must consider not only the overall number of casualties but also how this sacrifice has been shared. It discusses the two pathways through which the casualty gap has important political ramifications, and the dearth of studies on casuality gap. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
