📙 The Invention of Peace and the Reinvention of War: Reflections on War and International Order by Michael Howard — free download


Not until the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century did war come to be regarded an unmitigated evil; only after the massive slaughter of two world wards did peace become the declaratory objective of 'civilized' states. This book, already a success in hardback and paperback is reissued with the author's reflections on the latest failure of peace: the war in Afghanistan.
