Dr. Ralph Metzner's THE ROOTS OF WAR AND DOMINATION is a very insightful book. I particularly enjoyed reading the author's preface which gave his own personal experience of war as a child in Germany. I have a friend whose autobiographical account of experiencing WWII in Germany had many parallels with Dr. Metzner's. He devoted his life to the study of History and Dr. Metzner devoted his life to the study of Psychology, both with the impetus to learn more about the human phenomenon of war. The book is a interesting overview of the causes of war. Hopefully, scholars will continue this endeavor so that we can have sustainable and cooperative societies in the future which will live in peace.
