Overview

FROM WAR TO PEACE teaches students to think critically about foreign policy through two of its most profound questions: Why do states go to war? And how can they create a lasting peace? Formerly titled HOW NATIONS MAKE PEACE, the book of case studies has been renamed to indicate the breadth of its content.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This undergraduate political science text presents important concepts for analyzing war and peace decision making, followed by a series of case studies focusing on the causes of a number of pivotal wars and the construction of peaceful settlements. A final section provides a summary to prompt critical thinking about rival approaches to peacemaking in contemporary international politics. The jacket and title page say Bedford/St. Martin's, but Wadsworth now owns their political science books. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
