9781442212640: What Do We Know about War?

What Do We Know about War? reviews the research on causes of war and the conditions of peace over the past forty-five years. Leading scholars explore the critical roles of territorial disputes, alliances, arms races, rivalry, and nuclear weapons in bringing about war as well as the factors promoting peace, including democracy, norms, stable borders, and capitalist economies. Considering what has been learned about the causes of war and the conditions of peace in the ten years since the publication of the first edition, this invaluable text offers an accessible and up-to-date overview of current knowledge and an agenda for future research.

About the Author:

John A. Vasquez is Thomas B. Mackie Scholar in International Relations and professor of political science at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Review:

The new edition of What Do We Know about War? will be a great asset to students and scholars of international conflict. The chapters provide perceptive overviews of the current state of the discipline and in some cases even provide additional insights. This book is perfect for courses in international conflict and for scholars who want a good overview of an area of scholarship before beginning their own research. (Richard J. Stoll, Rice University)

The second edition of What Do We Know about War? is far more than just an update of the excellent first edition. The expansion of topics and consideration of new research not only masterfully answer the question the title asks but also give tremendous insight into both how the knowledge has been gained and where future work is likely to take us. The chapters offer great summaries of each facet of war's causes and consequences and will be tremendously useful in both undergraduate and graduate courses. (Douglas Lemke, Pennsylvania State University)
