Causes of War, 9781405175593 (1405175591), John Wiley & Sons, 2010

Written by leading scholars in the field, Causes of War provides the first comprehensive analysis of the leading theories relating to the origins of both interstate and civil wars.

  • Utilizes historical examples to illustrate individual theories throughout
  • Includes an analysis of theories of civil wars as well as interstate wars -- one of the only texts to do both
  • Written by two former International Studies Association Presidents

War has been a persistent pattern of interaction between and within states and other political units for millennia. In its many varieties, it is probably the most destructive form of human behavior. War kills people, destroys resources, retards economic development, ruins environments, spreads disease, expands governments, militarizes societies, reshapes cultures, disrupts families, and traumatizes people. Preparation for war, whether for conquest or for protection, diverts valued resources from more constructive social activities, and it often undermines security rather than enhances it.
