Based on a survey of international wars fought since 1700 and updated in this edition to include the nuclear era, this work examines the causes of war, arguing that the causes of war and peace are closely related and emphasizing factors such as our understanding of why wars begin and end. In the "Washington Post", J.E. Ambrose judged an earlier edition to be "firmly grounded in actual experience, full of new and valuable insights".
