    Setting Clausewitz right - The Predicament of English Editions

    This edition of Clausewitz's 'On War' is said to avoid the misinterpretations made by previous editors of this famous book. It will strip the 1970s edition by Paret and Howard off its Cold-War touch and try to come as close to the original German meanings as possible. Yet, it will also reveal the incoherency in Clausewitz' thought when - late in his life - he tried to bring in 'more unity' but failed when he turned away from his doctrinaire focus on the theory of absolute war and tried to bring in a concept of limited war. Graham, Honig and Maude will uncover the desperate attempt by Clausewitz to find the synthesis of the dialectic relationship between the theory of absolute war and the practice of limited war. He thought he found it in 'war being a continuation of politics by other means' but left it to later generations to figure out what this exactly meant.
