To my mind, this and F.H. Hinsley's "Power and the Pursuit of Peace" are the two best books ever written on the subject of war. A terrific, highly literate history of how liberal societies have viewed the necessity for war through the ages, even while insisting on the inevitability of peace. Also a terrific take on the foolishness of seeing war as a "rational" choice by any state. Apologies for my obvious bias towards the "British School" of IR, but there it is.Was this review helpful?
