The Politics of Peace and the Consequences of War

War is among the most ancient and regular of human activities, but its consequences for domestic politics are poorly understood. Scholars routinely allude to war’s transformative power for the states and societies preparing for and waging them, but studies of war’s domestic political consequences are comparatively rare. Elementary questions remain unanswered, and policy suffers as a result.
