Summary
Through this textbook [the authors] aim to begin to formulate their own prescriptions for building a lasting peace. In so doing [they] also aim to help them better apprecate the ethical dilemmas intrinsic to making choices about war and peace and to recognize how normative issues affect world politics ... [The book aims to teach] students to thinks critically about foreign policy by asking two ... questions: Why do states go to war? And how can they create a lasting peace? ... However, this is not a simply a text about war and its termination; it is also about broader issues in international relations. It introduces international relations ideas and concepts that students need to better understand the cases - concepts such as levels of analysis, liberalism and realism, rational choice, enduring rivalries, irredentism, grand strategy, just war theory, and more.-Pref
