This text served as the basis for a course taught by the author (Theodore Caplow) at the University of Virginia. It is highly informative and thankfully easy to read. Useful to students of history, international relations, and sociology, I would recommend this title to anyone hoping to gain an understanding of the causes, courses, and consequences of war.
