Have globalization, virulent ethnic differences, and globally operating
insurgents fundamentally changed the nature of war in the last decade?
Interpretations of war as driven by politics and state rationale, formulated
most importantly by the 19th century practitioner Carl von Clausewitz, have
received strong criticism. Political explanations have been said to fall short
in explaining conflicts in the Balkans, Africa, Asia and the attacks of 11
September 2001 in the United States.
This book re-evaluates these criticisms not only by scrutinising Clausewitz's
arguments and their applicability, but also by a careful reading of the
criticism itself. In doing so, it presents empirical evidence on the basis of
several case studies, addressing various aspects of modern war, such as the
actors, conduct and purposes of war.
