The causes of wars and other essays by Michael Howard( Book )

45 editions published between 1982 and 1986 in English and Chinese and held by 1,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En rkke artikler, foredrag og essays skrevet i 1970'erne under indtryk af den Kolde krigs trusler og afskrkkelser, bl.a. om årsager til kriges opståen og ud fra temaet, at hvis vi i fremtiden skal forsge at undgå fremtidige krige, må vi frst lre at forstå hvorfor de tidligere i historien opstod. Bogen er skrevet af den anerkendte engelske professor Michael Howard, som bl.a. er kendt dels for sin viden om sikkerhedspolitik og internationale forhold og dels som historiker og militrhistoriker. "The essays in this book illuminiate our present predicament, and deals with the past in a way that sharpens our perception of the present, and all of them carry the hallmark of Professor Howard's mind, a refusal to accept comfortable simplicities in a field where, if one does not understand the complexities, one understand nothing. The essays includes analysis of nuclear strategy today, essays on the past and writing of history, and studies of military thinkers and leaders. They are unified by a sense of inter-relationship between men and ideas, between war and social forces, and between our present situation and its roots in the past."

Liberation or catastrophe? reflections on the history of the twentieth century by Michael Howard( )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was Michael Howard who brought the study of military history into the mainstream of historical research and his readers will expect this as an emphasis in his analysis. They will expect less about suffragettes, human rights and the role of women. Howards̀ concern is substantially with the role of the military in the developing story of the tw

The invention of peace : reflections on war and international order by Michael Howard( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout history the overwhelming majority of human societies have taken war for granted and made it the basis for their legal and social structures. Not until the Enlightenment in the eighteenth century did war come to be regarded as an unmitigated evil and one that could be abolished by rational social organization, and only after the massive slaughter of the two world wars did this become the declared objective of civilized states. Nevertheless war in one form or another continues unabated. In this book, a preeminent military historian considers why this is so."--BOOK JACKET
