Description - Offense, Defense, and War by Michael E. Brown

Offence-defence theory argues that the relative ease of offence and defence varies in international politics. When the offence has the advantage, military conquest becomes easier and war is more likely. When the defence has the advantage, the opposite is more likely. The balance between offence and defence depends on geography, technology, and other factors. This theory, and the body of related theories, has generated much debate and research over the past 25 years. This collection presents a comprehensive overview of offence-defence theory. It includes contending views on the theory and some of the most recent attempts to refine and test it.
