Description:

Globalization, War, and Peace in the Twenty-first Century explores humanity's most persistent and tragic problem by answering five crucial questions: How is military power created and asserted? How do international laws and organizations constrain war? Why do nations go to war or stay at peace? What continuities and changes characterize recent warfare? What are weapons of mass destruction and what is the likelihood of them being used? What are the source, methods, and results of terrorism and counterterrorism? The emphasis is on recent headlines, with case studies on the war against Al Qaeda, the Iraq War, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, attempts by North Korea and Iran to become nuclear powers, and other ongoing tragedies and threats. All along the book reveals why geopolitics persists even though the ever thickening web of interdependent relations among nation-states and peoples, known as globalization, sharply raises war's costs and reduces its benefits.
