Review:

"Why Nations Go to War is more than just a book. Words are transformed into living visuals about what happened to the 20th Century and why. History and the political decisions of our time come alive on these pages, and the author's analysis serves to weave case studies together into a seamless tapestry that moves the reader from confusion to clarity. In its ninth edition, Why Nations Go to War joins the ranks of a few classic works that combine intellect with a passion that sieves from life experiences ranging from the author's struggles as a refugee in World War II to the challenge of a career at the UN. His style is amazingly engaging. Students and general readers alike will feel as if they are having a conversation with one of the best informed academics and practitioners in the field of international relations."
