The Origins of Major War | Βιβλία Public

Through a masterful blending of theoretical modeling and historical analysis, it sheds significant light on the manner in which changes in power relationships among countries may increase the risk of the outbreak of serious war. This book will be of great interest both to political scientists and historians, and it will help shape academic and policy-oriented thinking about the problem of shifts in national power and the prospects for world peace for many years to come. Mearsheimer, University of Chicago "Political scientists will appreciate the overview of the realist approach to the outbreak of war.

Copeland ably shows how great-power leaders think about and respond to changing power disparities. This is a model of how to integrate theory and history in ways that enhance both, and is essential reading for all serious students of international conflict. Levy, Rutgers University "The Origins of Major War is arguably the best statement on the causes of great power conflict in a generation. Copeland's argument is elegant and far-reaching. This work will stand as the most powerful realist statement on the causes of war for some time and should be read by all students of international politics and those who wonder what lies ahead for the United States should it experience a decline in power.

This is a model of how to integrate theory and history in ways that enhance both, and is essential reading for all serious students of international conflict. Levy, Rutgers University. Copeland's The Origins of Major War is a superb book. Much military history focuses on the who, when, and where of war; in this riveting book, Dale C.

Copeland brings attention to bear on why governments make decisions that lead to, sustain, and intensify conflicts. He highlights instigating factors that transcend individual personalities, styles of government, geography, and historical context to reveal remarkable consistency across several major wars usually considered dissimilar. The result is a series of challenges to established interpretive positions and provocative new readings of the causes of conflict. Classical realists and neorealists claim that dominant powers initiate war.

Hegemonic stability realists believe that wars are most often started by rising states. Copeland offers an approach stronger in explanatory power and predictive capacity than these three brands of realism: he examines not only the power resources but the shifting power differentials of states. He specifies more precisely the conditions under which state decline leads to conflict, drawing empirical support from the critical cases of the twentieth century as well as major wars spanning from ancient Greece to the Napoleonic Wars.
