Why nations go to war by John George Stoessinger( Book )

91 editions published between 1971 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why Nations Go to War emphasizes the human decisions involved when nations enter into war. The author utilizes case studies of major 20th-century conflicts - including World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Indian-Pakistani War, the Arab-Israeli Wars and the Persian Gulf War - to examine the stages that culminate in a leaders choice to bring a nation into war. The book provides vivid coverage of how misjudgments and misunderstandings influence the decisions of leaders and have dramatic consequences for world history. Stoessinger concludes with a discussion of prospects for a more peaceful future, including proposals for enduring peace treaties that are negotiated on the basis of equality."--Jacket
