Pub. Date:
Kagan (history, classics, and Western civilization, Yale U.) details five case studies of efforts to prevent war. Among them are the Athenian Pericles' attempts to calm the Spartans in the fifth century BC and prevent what became the Peloponnesian War; and how the treaty after the First Punic War (218-201 BC) led to the Second Punic War, and the Treaty of Versailles played the same role in regard to the First and Second World Wars. His only example of success is the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
