Availability: Ready to download

Because no authoritative agency can be called on to resolve international disputes, leaders often find it convenient, and sometimes necessary, to threaten the use of force or actually to employ it. Military power brings some order out of chaos and helps to make and enforce the rules of the game. Because force is so important internationally, the editors of the fourth editio Because no authoritative agency can be called on to resolve international disputes, leaders often find it convenient, and sometimes necessary, to threaten the use of force or actually to employ it. Military power brings some order out of chaos and helps to make and enforce the rules of the game. Because force is so important internationally, the editors of the fourth edition of this popular standard work, originally published in 1971 by Little, Brown, treat the subject by organizing the articles into four major divisions: • strategies for the use of force; • case studies in the twentieth-century use of force; • the nuclear revolution; • military issues in the post-Cold War era. The book contains 18 new selections dealing with such topical events as the post-Cold War goals of American foreign policy, Iraq's military strategies, how Kuwait was won, the pros and cons of deploying limited defenses against ballistic missile attack, and the U.N. as a true international collective security agency.

However, if you are interested in understanding how the balances of international politics is altered through the use of military force, this book is just for you. The book itself brings together influential and enduring works on the state of military power in foreign relations. So go ahead and grab a hold of it and let your brain run free in a world where power, negotiation, and strong diplomatic relations are your greatest allies and understand contemporary threats to our infrastructure as well as the complexity of our political corruption. Art and Waltz interpretation on the use of force in international politics is developed extremely well. The book goes heavily in-depth when they describe the specific events that have occurred in the past and caused an uprising. In the authors' points of view, Art and Waltz believe that our diplomatic relationships with our "allies" are not strong enough, and there is a specific reason to that. The book mainly focuses on the threats from other nations as well as our intended reply to them as opposed to how we have used our military force to secure our political domination. Everyone in our world is affected by the amount of corruption in our government and we have no idea why. If you would like to find out, read this book and you will be able to understand why we attack foreign countries and why we must find a way to secure our prosperity. Ultimately, I recommend this book to anyone interested in Military procedures as well as International Politics. I highly enjoyed Art and Waltz's phenomenal point on how we should treat our current stand on politics.

    I read the 7th edition which has a similar cover but doesn't seem to be listed on the site. A couple off the wall ideas are presented in the book, thankfully the next chapter follows with a counterpoint to provide much needed balance I read the 7th edition which has a similar cover but doesn't seem to be listed on the site.

    Great topics and good choice of articles, but many are out of date and irrelevant considering recent national security events. Read it with a grain of salt.
