Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
An analysis of the inevitability of war. As the Cold War fades, leaders and theorists alike speak of a new era, when democracy and open trade will join hands to banish outright war. The author exposes the truth behind this rhetoric: in a world where no international authority reigns, hegemony is the only insurance of security.
