Originally published in 1976, Clausewitz and the State presents a comprehensive analysis of one of the significant thinkers of modern Europe. Peter Paret combines social and military history and psychological interpretation with a study of Clausewitz’s military theories and of his unduly neglected historical and political writing.


This timely new edition includes a preface which allows Paret to recount the past thirty years of discussion on Clausewitz and respond to critics. A companion volume to Clausewitz’s On War, this book is indispensable to anyone interested in Clausewitz and his theories, and their proper historical context.
