Résumé
Présentation de l'éditeur : "Roots of War presents systematic archival, experimental, and survey research on three psychological factors leading to war--desire for power, exaggerated perception of threat, and justification for force -- set in comparative historical accounts of the unexpected 1914 escalation to world war and the peacefully - resolved 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis."
"Roots of War: Wanting Power, Seeing Threat, Justifying Force identifies three psychological factors that contribute to conflicts and the difference between escalation to war and peaceful resolution: the desire for power (power motivation), exaggerated perception of an opponent's power threat, and justification for using military power and force. The importance of power concerns in war is reflected in a survey of leaders' reasons for starting wars fromThucydides through George W. Bush. Drawing on this research, Roots of War concludes by suggesting policies to tame power and preserve peace, demonstrating the role of these policies in successful diplomatic interventions."
