War in Social Thought:
Hobbes to the Present
Hans Joas & Wolfgang Knöbl

Book Description | Table of Contents
Preface [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"There has been a tendency in social thought to stay clear of the issues of war despite its importance in shaping the modern age. But, as this important and erudite study shows, war keeps on intruding. By demonstrating how much theorists have struggled with the problems of war, Joas and Knöbl illuminate vital aspects of social theory--and of war itself."--Lawrence Freedman, King's College London

"This book, written by two eminent social theorists, has no parallel. Hans Joas and Wolfgang Knöbl tackle a fundamental problem in historical and contemporary social theory: the conceptualization of war as a fundamental phenomenon in social life. At the same time, they provide a comprehensive review of thinking about war in modern social theory since Hobbes. This book presents an impressive panorama of its subject."--Dieter Senghaas, University of Bremen
