Editorial Reviews

Review

Provide[s] undergraduates with a clear, systematic application of the 'causes of war' literature to seven wars of the 20th century. These are an interesting and diverse set of cases including WWI, WWII in the Pacific, the 1967 Arab-Israeli conflict, the 1971 Indo-Pakistan War, the Iran-Iraq War, and the 2003 Iraq War. . . . Recommended. (Peter Rutland, Wesleyan University CHOICE)

Excellent scholarship, references, and analysis. The authors' multilevel patterns bring coherence to the innumerable case studies and lessons learned that dominate the field. (William H. Mott IV, Emerson College)

A tour de force that will displace Stoessinger’s Why Nations Go to War as the dominant case-studies text in the field. This is an insightful, trenchant analysis of specific wars that takes into account the vast amount of scientific work on the subject. Both scholars and students will learn much from this book. (John A. Vasquez and Marie T. Henehan, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

I read this for "causes of war" with Cashman as my instructor. I took both of the authors various Political Science classes at Salisbury and they know their stuff. I kept the book instead of selling it back because it's such a good reference on conflict in the past 100 years.

This book offers analysis of several different wars on different levels of causal factors. i read this for my IA class and found it to be a good book. The writing is good and the analysis is very interesting. However, the letters in the book are just way too small and makes it difficult to read, thats why i am giving it a 4 star.
