"With its combination of theoretical acumen and historical insights, this book is a significant step forward in the reintegration of war into the sociological canon. Both students and experienced scholars will appreciate Malesevic's perspectives on how war made us who we are."
Miguel A. Centeno, Professor of Sociology and International Affairs, Princeton University
"This is a major contribution, at once a survey of key intellectual fields (sociological theory, the history of war understood in comparative terms and an analysis of the key social variables involved) and a major piece of innovation, based a powerful appreciation of ideological and bureaucratic development. There is no better book on the subject."
John A. Hall, James McGill Professor of Sociology, McGill University
"An incisive examination of the theoretical literature on warfare and violence. Lucid and wide-ranging, this will be an invaluable guide to scholars and students."
John Hutchinson, Reader in Nationalism, Department of Government, London School of Economics and Political Science
"Malesevic ranges with authority and intelligence over the major debates concerning war in human societies past and present, arguing powerfully and provocatively for a theory centred on social organization and ideology. This is easily the best general account of the Sociology of War."
Michael Mann, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Los Angeles
"...at once powerful social theory and excellent comparative-historical sociology." - Liliana Riga, University of Edinburgh; Canadian Journal of Sociology
"Siniša Malešević's comprehensive work combines an impressive collection of theoretical insights with a sweeping review of violence, warfare, and coercion throughout the ages." -Erica Chenowet, Perspectives on Politics
This textbook demonstrates how to use sociological tools to understand the changing character of war and organised violence. There is a particular focus on the historical and contemporary impact of coercion and warfare on the transformation of social life, and vice versa.
