To answer this question, Professor Waltz examines the ideas of major thinkers throughout the history of Western civilization. He explores works both by classic political philosophers, such as St.
Augustine, Hobbes, Kant, and Rousseau, and by modern psychologists and anthropologists to discover ideas intended to explain war among states and related prescriptions for peace. Read more Read less.

I attended a graduate level course recently on analyzing international conflicts and proposing non violent solutions. Waltz provides a better framework in three hours of critical reading than the pages I read before.
He covers the topic from a individual, intrastate, and interstate approach that is very insightful. It's age only helps relax the tense muscles created by the claims that we have never seen this before--humanity probably has and modern authors are trying to generate hype and sell books. A must buy in my opinion. This is a thoughtful book that draws on excellent reseach on key ideas of the best minds that have written on the subject of war and peace thoughout the ages.
Man, the State, and War: A Theoretical Analysis by Kenneth N. Waltz
It is based on the author's doctoal dissetation done in the s, when the tradegy of World War II was evidently still prominent on his mind. Starting from the Greek philosophers, he surveys the key ideas of the greatest minds in philosophy, government, politics,diplomacy, and in social and political science right up to the present.
He explores the reasons for war, and hence any possible means to achieving peace. The question here is one that man has asked repeatedly. If war is so clearly harmful frrom the moral, social and economic perspecties, why do we come back to it again and again? It is very useful to look at how the greatest minds have considered the subject thoughout human civilisation. The author is able to keep a clear head, and his theoretical analysis is concise and to the point.
The book is delightful to read, albeit that it covers a very heavy subject. The greatest disappointment, I must admit, is that up till the end of the book, there is no answer to the question of preventing war and achieving peace. But of course, if mankind had the answer, we would not be where we are today.
Man, the State, and War: A Theoretical Analysis
In any case, the great deal of thought that mankind has put into the subject does help to illuminate the way forward, and to remind us never to lose hope. A highly recommeded read. Ok, I get it this is THE book. The cornerstone of Realist theology written by a very young learned man after the traumatic events of WWII.
This is his dissertation with a few updates. It is long, it is drawn out, it is dry, and it is very difficult to read. There are much better books out now. Bottom line only read this book if you are very serious about International Relations, writing your own dissertation, or are an insomniac. Dear Readers The book is apocalyptic, and that's why I am so impressed by it. The E-mail Address es field is required. Please enter recipient e-mail address es.
