War has shaped the international system, prompted social change, and inspired the arts.
The ubiquitous and multi-faceted character of war is fully reflected in this new Oxford Reader.
It addresses the causes of war, the experience of war, and the moral and strategic principles behind war through a variety of academic viewpoints, and first-hand accounts by generals, soldiers, historians, strategists, and poets.
