Acerca de


Why are democracies pursuing more military conflicts, but achieving worse results? Examining modern militaries and the average voter's incentives, this book explains why Britain's empire swelled as its suffrage expanded, why the US pursued a lengthy but flawed strategy in Vietnam, and why we are entering an age of democratic militarism.


'Jonathan Caverley's Democratic Militarism links economics, domestic politics, and international security in a fresh and thought-provoking way. This book deserves to be pondered by both scholars and policy-makers alike.' Thomas G. Mahnken, Jerome Levy Chair of Economic Geography and National Security, US Naval War College

'Caverley gives us a provocative explanation of why rich democracies with highly unequal income distribution may have costly capital-intensive military machines and wage war often. Observers of US politics and policy have much to consider here.' Bruce Russett, Dean Acheson Research Professor of International Relations, Yale University

'Caverley has produced what will come to be regarded as one of the best IR books of the past decade. Since the end of the Cold War there have been very few books that advance truly new ideas. He has built a new theory linking states' domestic political economy to their relative bellicosity, strategic doctrine, and armaments bias. Caverley's historical illustrations guide the reader through a wholly novel way of thinking about the nature of domestic and international politics.' Allan C. Stam, Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, University of Michigan

'Democratic Militarism may transform how we think about democracy, wealth and war. Caverley builds a bold theory from the ground up, provides substantial initial empirical support for it, and applies it to some of the most important and enduring questions of our time. I firmly expect that this will come to be seen as one of the most influential books in international security produced in years.' William C. Wohlforth, Daniel Webster Professor of Government, Dartmouth College
