Clausewitz's On War, first published in 1832, remains the classic study of the nature and conditions of warfare. Best remembered for his pronouncement that war is a continuation of politics by other means and for his observations on total war, he gave a new philosophical foundation to the art of war. Complex and often misunderstood, Clausewitz has fascinated and influenced generations of politicians and strategic thinkers. Beatrice Heuser's comprehensive study is the first book on how to read Clausewitz and how others have read him—from the military commanders in World War I through Lenin and Mao Zedung to strategists in the nuclear age. The result is an accessible and illuminating introduction to the most influential study of the art of war.

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Clausewitz s On War, first published in 1832, remains the most famous study of the nature and conditions of warfare. Contemporaries found him endearing or totally unpalatable , while later generations called him the father of modern strategical study , whose tenets have eternal relevance , or dismissed him as outdated. Was it really he who made the discovery that warfare is a continuation of politics? Was he the Mahdi of mass and mutual massacre , in part responsible for the mass slaughter of the First World War, as Liddell Hart contended? Can the idea of total war be traced back to him? Complex and often misunderstood, Clausewitz has fascinated and influenced generations of politicians and strategic thinkers. Beatrice Heuser s study is the first book, not only on how to read Clausewitz, but also on how others have read him - from the Prussian and German masters of warfare of the late nineteenth century through to the military commanders of the First World War, through Lenin and Mao Zedong to strategists in the nuclear age and of guerrilla warfare. The result is an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the work and influence of the greatest classic on the art of war. Seller Inventory # AAZ9780712664844
