Synopsis: In this comprehensive overview, the editors bring together the best scientific work on peace and war of the past 25 years. Each of the 22 selections is preceded by an editor's introduction and followed by two sets of commentary, one that explains what the findings tell us and one that takes readers through the approach used in the analysis. The book includes the writings of leading scholars such as Jack Levy, Bruce Bueno de Mesquita, Steven Rosen, A.F.K. Organski, William Thompson, Cynthia Cannizzo and Charles Kegley, Jr. Together the pieces constitute a body of evidence illuminating the causes and consequences of war, and reflect the real progress that has been made toward a comprehensive explanation of war and peace.

About the Author: John A. Vasquez is Professor of Political Science at Vanderbilt University. He is the author of The War Puzzle and The Power of Power Politics, coauthor (with Richard Mansbach) of In Search of Theory, and editor of Classics of International Relations. Marie T. Henehan is Assistant Professor of Political Science at Vanderbilt University. She is the author of Foreign Policy and Congress: An International Relations Perspective.
