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 developing international governance, overthrowing leaders and inspiring social change, to destroying towns, dividing nations and breeding animosity.

In this book, Dr Aaron Edwards draws on a wide array of historical episodes to convey the complexity and human face of war.  With eyewitness testimonies from different times, places and cultures, War: A Beginner's Guide offers a comprehensive overview of  the political theories involved and invites readers to question whether violence is the most effective way to resolve disputes.
