Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Authoritative, provocative, and insightful, Leashing the Dogs of War offers an unparalleled breadth and depth of analysis of conflict in today's world. It is a "must read" not only for students of international relations and conflict resolution but also for anyone--in government and outside--seeking to understand the dynamics of contemporary conflict and the best means of resolving it.

0 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Dom on February 5, 2014
Format: Paperback
This book was assigned for my International Conflict class. Aside from general statements that are rarely ever adequately qualified, the authors arguments are all over the place. It reads more like a letter to the editor or amateur op-ed piece than an actual textbook. You spend more time trying to piece together scattered bits of information than you spend actually gaining insight. I don't know if the authors contributed to this book to pad their wallets or resume, but if it wasn't hastily written, their style just flat-out sucks.

My advice? If you have this book assigned as reading for your class, ask the professor if he/she wouldn't consider a better book.
