Format: Paperback
Bruce Russett and John R. Oneal make a great contrubution to the epistemology of war and peace by Triangulating Peace. The book is about democracy, interdependence and international organizations. In Triangulating Peace, Russett and Oneal argue that democracy, economic interdependence and international organizations together lead to peace and they prevent war and/or conflict. They reach this conclusion after a well-studied statistical analysis that embraces all militarized inter-state disputes from 1885 to 1994. The data is gathered by the University of Michigan's Correlates of War Project. Russett and Oneal give many references to Kant's treatise on peace and even they label Triangulating Peace as the Kantian Peace. They argue that the Kantian Peace thesis is superior to democratic peace thesis. The three legs of Kantian peace, democracy, economic interdependence and international organizations generate virtuous cycles of peace in opposed to vicious cycles of war. These three factors also positively affect each other. However, the authors do not argue that all three factors have equal power in leading to peace. Economic interdependence has the most explanatory power while international organizations have the least one. How does democracy lead to international cooperation and peace? Russett and Oneal mention the factors of legitimacy, accountability, institutional checks and balances, transparency, and credibility of international agreements, through them democratic states produce patterns of cooperation and it leads to peace. Economic interdependence, on the other hand, creates processes of reciprocal attention and communication, perceptions of needs and responsiveness, and bonds of mutually rewarding transactions and feelings of community.Read more ›

A great read to understand the Liberal Peace theories. Democratic Peace, Interdependence, and IGO membership, in the authors views are strongly correlated to increased peace in International Relations. the results are sensational, but are they right?

Large N studies show a great pattern, but I am not completely swayed by the evidence. nonetheless, this is the book I quote when talking about Liberal Peace Theories.
