9780765805041: Peace & War: A Theory of International Relations
Review:

"Peace and War is a welcome addition for general readers, social science sophmores, and advanced students concerned with peace and war." --Choice "[Well] written, informative, thought-provoking. . . . [A] valuable compendium." -- American Anthropologist "An absorbing, informative study of human behavior on a grand scale which is very highly recommended for International Studies, Political Science, and Multinational History reference collections and reading lists." --Library Bookwatch "This massive book is a monumental contribution to the study of politics, peace and war, and international relations. Peace and War: A Theory of International Relations, by Raymond Aron, is an incredibly informative, interesting, and encompassing book. Aron has delivered an extraordinarily scholarly work that develops and presents analytical tools indispensable to developing clear and cogent thinking regarding conflicts and possibilities of contemporary international relations. The historical context of international relations described by Aron provides current and future political leaders, students, and military leaders with an historical base to formulate models that can develop theoretical approaches to thinking about current and future international relations. Aron combines theory, sociology, and history with keen insight along with an inclusive range of knowledge. Peace and War: A Theory of International Relations provides us with one of the most profound, brilliant, insightful works ever written on the challenges of peace and war and international relations. Aron has written a fascinatin, enlightening study of human behavior on a grand scale, and I highly recommend that it be added to international studies, political science, military, and multinational-history reading lists." --From Armed Forces & Society, Vol 33 "Aron's timeless work Peace & War opens with an enlightening introduction by Daniel J. Mahoney and Brian C. Anderson regarding the conceptualization of peace and war and international relations. The introduction also examines current and historical ethical and pragmatic problems that confront politicians and policy makers regarding the challenges of peace and war and international relations. In the conclusion of their introduction, the authors prepare the reader for a long and intriguing journey on the subject of peace and war by focusing on the reality that twenty-first century humanity, like that of centuries before it, must travel the bloody road of war to gain access to one day of peace. By educating humanity on the developmental history of war and peace, there is hope that current and future societies will be better prepared to have many more days of peace than days of war." - Spencer J. Campbell, Cubic Defense Applications, Inc.

From the Publisher:

A classic of international relations, the starting point of Raymond Aron's book is the state of nature that exists between nations, a condition that differs essentially from the civil state that holds within political communities. Ever keeping this brute fact about the life of nations in mind and ranging widely over political history and many disciplines, Aron develops the essential analytical tools to enable us to think clearly about the stakes and possibilities of international relations. In his first section, "Theory", Aron shows that, while international relations can be mapped, and probabilities discerned, no closed, global "science" of international relations is anything more than a mirage. In the second part, "Sociology", Aron studies the many ways various subpolitical forces influence foreign policy. He emphasizes that no rigorous determinism is at work: politics - and thus the need for prudent statesmanship - are inescapable in international relations. In part three "History", Aron offers a magisterial survey of the 20th century. He looks at key developments that have had an impact on foreign policy and the emergence of what he calls "universal history", which brings far-flung peoples into regular contact for the first time. In a final section, "Praxeology", Aron articulates a normative theory of international relations that rejects both the bleak vision of the Machiavellians, who hold that any means are legitimate, and the naivete of the idealists, who think foreign policy can be overcome. This new edition of "Peace and War" includes an informative introduction by Daniel J. Mahoney and Brian C. Anderson, situating Aron's thought in a new post-Cold War context and evaluating his contribution to the study of politics and international relations.
