Preview

The Oxford Handbook of War provides an analysis of war in the twenty-first century. With over forty authors from academia, government and the armed forces world-wide, it explores the history, theory, ethics and practice of war. The book first considers the fundamental causes of war, before reflecting on the moral and legal aspects of war. Theories on the practice of war lead into an analysis of the strategic conduct of war and non-Western ways of war. At its heart is an analysis of the military conduct of war that is juxtaposed with consideration of technology, economy, industry and war. In conclusion, the book looks to the future of this apparently perennial feature of human interaction.

Keywords: war; strategic conduct; military conduct; technology; economy; industry; human interaction; twenty-first century; armed forces; ethics
