Críticas:


"War in Human Civilization is indeed the ambitious, sweeping book that the author set out to write. Both its scope and scale are impressive as is the wide range of sources and disciplines whose theories and methods are brought to bear on the 'riddle' of war.... The coverage and the deft weaving together of so many central theories on human behavior make this a book worth examining."--Michael S. Neilberg, Journal of Social History


"A work of extraordinary scope and formidable erudition.... Gat definitively unravels the riddle of civilization and war."--Professor Robert J. Lieber, Georgetown University


"Gat's book is a rich undertaking definitely well worth reading and pondering."--William R. Thompson, The International History Review


UNEDITED UK REVIEW: "An immensely ambitious work covering not only history but archaeology, anthropology, ethnography, demography and economics, to name but a few... its weight of learning is borne aloft by the author's enthusiasm for his subject and takes his readers with it. If only there were more scholars like this!"--Michael Howard, TLS Books of the Year


UNEDITED UK REVIEW: "There's any amount of fascinating insight to be found in this big and enormously ambitious interdisciplinary study."--The Scotsman


UNEDITED UK REVIEW: "A book of extraordinary ambition, erudition and range... Every student of war will be obliged to engage with this remarkable piece of scholarship."--Professor Sir Lawrence Freedman, King's College, London


"A work of extraordinary scope and formidable erudition.... Gat definitively unravels the riddle of civilization and war."--Professor Robert J. Lieber, Georgetown University
