War by Paul F. Diehl
Book DescriptionThis Six-volume collection is the first to bring together the world's seminal writings on war. Edited and introduced by Paul F. Diehl, the volumes constitute eighty-seven selections thematically organised across six volumes: - Concepts, Measurement and Patterns - General Theoretical Approaches and Domestic Factors - National, Dyadic and Systemic Correlates of Conflict - The Moderation and Outcomes of Conflict. Part 1: Introduces and reviews the key conceptual and definitional issues, identifies the major historical patterns, and signals future trends. Part 2: Reviews the major theoretical approaches to conflict together with the key decision-making models, and provides an overview of the domestic political influences on war, such as military technology, gender and environmental conditions. Part 3: Focuses on the correlates of conflict at three levels: within individual states; between pairs of states; and at a systemic level. Topics covered include regime change, culture, arms races, geography, the role of alliances, and power distributions.Part 4: Examines the main theories of conflict moderation: democratic peace; trade and interdependence; deterrence; and international institutions. The final sections review the expansion, settlement and renewal of conflict. Together the volume sets combine to provide an unparalleled resource providing both broad coverage of the subject and historical depth and contemporary relevance.
