Douglas Lemke inquires as to whether the factors that lead to war among great powers also apply to other countries, considering different regional circumstances and historical experiences. The book examines Africa, the Far East, the Middle East and South America, and argues that the causes of war are similar across these regions, but that there are differences based on varying patterns of development. This book will interest students and scholars of international relations, peace studies, comparative politics and area studies.

'The book ... deserves to be read by everyone interested in regional subsystems.' Journal of Peace Research '... a major contribution to international relations and the study of the causes of war ... should encourage future research.' Michael Rudy, University of Missouri
