766 pp $99.00
This work contains a selection of papers from a working seminar at the University of Virginia School of Law exploring the state of knowledge as to the origins and control of war. As set out in the preface by Professor John Norton Moore, a former Chairman of the Board of the U.S. Institute of Peace, the book criticizes the dominant neo-realism perspective in international relations regarding the origins of war. Importantly, it posits a new DecInCo (Decision-Incentive-Complexity) theory of international relations with greater explanatory power, not just over war, but other key foreign policy issues as well.
