War by Paul F. Diehl

Book Description

This 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. Series Description: The SAGE Library of International Relations is a new series of major works that will bring together the most influential and field-defining articles, both classical and contemporary, in a number of key areas of research and inquiry in International Relations. Each multi-volume set will represent a collection of the essential published works collated from the foremost publications in the field by an Editor or Editorial Team of renowned international stature. They will also include a full introduction, presenting a rationale for the selection and mapping out the discipline's past, present and likely future. This series is designed to be a 'gold standard' for university libraries throughout the world with an interest in International Relations.
