"The central argument of Another Bloody Century has six connecting threads: first, that war will always be with us; that because war has an unchanging nature, as well as an evolving character, history is our best guide to the future; that the political context is the principal, though far from sole, driver of war's incidence and character; that war is social and cultural, as well as political and strategic; that strategic surprise is not only possible, but certain; and that efforts to limit and control war by international and political, legal and normative measures are worth pursuing, but may well fall victim to perceived belligerent necessity."--Jacket." ;
