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.Contributions by: Brett V.

This book was ordered for a college course my daughter was enrolled in. The book is required for the course and ordering from Amazon as opposed to the campus book store saved us a lot of money. My daughter thought the writing was clear and concise and easy to follow. She was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was for her to stay interested in the subject matter and not have her mind wander because she was bored with what she was reading which is often the case with college text books.

This is a great book if you already have a base of knowledge in the subject. If you are expecting to learn from this book, you will.....but you will have to do a lot of internet research to understand what they authors are talking about. The mathematical and statistical data provided in the book are particularly difficult to understand. Unless you are already very strong in mathematics, statistical probabilities and logit functions you will have to do some additional research to understand the material. The authors write with the expectation that you already understand these principles. Good book but it requires a lot of work.

This book was the cornerstone of my Masters degree curriculum. It offers two articles from each main war theory except rational choice, however the concept is in there throughout. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to ascend from arm-chair politico to an expert.
