This book charts the incidence of territorial changes and military conflicts from 1816 to 1980. Using statistical and descriptive analysis, the authors attempt to answer three related sets of questions:
* When does military conflict accompany the process of national independence?
* When do states fight over territorial changes and when are such transactions completed peacefully?
* How do territorial changes affect future military conflict between the states involved in the exchange?

"In this solid and meticulous work, two academics look back at 770 instances of territorial change in the international system over the period 1816-1980."
"The book is well-structured and clearly written. Moreover, it is successful in bridging the broad gap between geography and politics. . . . This book is a must, at least, for each political geographer with an interest in international relations."
