American Political Science Review, 2002, vol. 96, issue 3, 678-678
The essays in this ambitious volume take as their foil the democratic peace hypothesis: the claim that liberal democracies, while still going to war against nonliberal states, rarely wage war on one another. â€œThis volume challenges the received international wisdom about democracy, liberalism, and war,â€ write the editors in the Introduction. â€œThe democratic peace, with its transhistorical causal law based on fixed definitions of democracy and war and a nation-state ontology of the international, is far too simplistic a frame from which to analyze the various historical and contemporary configurations of democracy, liberalism, and warâ€ (p. 2).
