Overview

Are democracies less likely to go to war than other kinds of states? This question is of tremendous importance in both academic and policy-making circles and one that has been debated by political scientists for years. The Clinton administration, in particular, has argued that theUnited States should endeavor to promote democracy around the world. This timely reader includes some of the most influential articles in the debate that have appeared in the journalInternational Security during the past two years, adding two seminal pieces published elsewhere to make a more balanced and complete collection, suitable for classroom use.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"Extremely useful... excellent." Francis Fukuyama, Foreign Affairs
Samuel P. Huntington
The democratic peace thesis is one of the most significant propositions to come out of social science in recent decades. If true, it has crucially important implications for both theory and policy. Debating the Democratic Peace provides a comprehensive collection of the major writings on all sides of this issue.
