Editorial Reviews

"Conflict After the Cold War is a classic and first-rate reader that addresses enduring problems of international security and admirably represents a variety of theoretical orientations without overreliance on contemporary squabbles. By including classical and current readings, it helps students understand the important ideas-not just the names-behind theories of war and peace."-Christopher Marcoux, College of William and Mary
