Theorizing War: From Hobbes to Badiouby N. Mansfield
War is always defined in relation to something else: peace, society, civilisation, friendship or love. What is the relationship between war and its 'other'? Are they opposites or versions of one another? This book surveys four hundred years of thinking about the definition of war, from Hobbes and Clausewitz to Badiou and Žižek.
