From the Publisher"This book was important when we were not at war. Now that we are locked in combat--political, ideological, and military--against terrorists determined to destroy our civilization, Angelo Codevilla’s sweeping, incisive treatment of mankind’s most persistent scourge is essential reading."
"A uniquely valuable commentary on war when it first came out, this book became a mainstay of my graduate students’ education until it went out of print. Now, thankfully, it is back, updated and enhanced by Professor Codevilla so that it is even better. While retaining its timeless parts, there is much new material containing keen insights on post-1991 events and current warfare. It should be indispensable to students of the subject."
