The fifth edition of this classic text retains the best from earlier editions and adds sixteen new selections that highlight emerging issues, such as NATO expansion, intervention in ethnic conflicts, and the relevance of force in the twenty-first century. Strategies for using force, together with case studies that illustrate the general principles, are hallmarks of the text. A theme that runs throughout the book is the effect of new technologies on military strategy and the utility of force.
Praise for previous editions:
"The Use of Force continues to offer a most stimulating blend of contemporary and traditional perspectives on international relations, very valuable for students new to the subject, but essential also for the experienced researcher trying to maintain his or her bearings. The contributions are chosen for their readability and their timelessness. The perspective is always realistic, in the best sense of the term." —George Quester, University of Maryland
"A very useful compendium of articles on critical questions of military force in world politics." —Joseph S. Nye, Jr., Harvard University
"A very useful and balanced collection that covers many facets of the problem, logically organized by two of the most sensible scholars in the field." —Richard K. Betts, The Brookings Institution
