Aaron Edwards : War. What is it good for?The Canons' Gait, 232 Canongate, Edinburgh EH8 8DQ, UK
War has been a perennial feature of human history since ancient times, yet it remains a poorly understood phenomenon. It has done much to shape our world, from overthrowing leaders, establishing international governance, and inspiring social change, to destroying cities, dividing nations and breeding animosity.
Dr Aaron Edwards succinctly combines political theories with historical realities. and invites us to question whether violence is the most effective way to resolve disputes.
Dr Aaron Edwards is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Defense and International Affairs at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
