With scholars from a range of disciplines and countries, it throws new light on a classic text and contemporary issues. Reviews Editorial reviews Publisher Synopsis A closer reading of Clausewitz gives rise to the following implications for warfare in the 21st century.
First, the war on terror, as with all wars, is irreversibly political in nature, and requires a decidedly political approach.
Second, globalization intensifies the role of politics, and indeed reduces reaction time within all three elements of Clausewitz's wondrous trinity, which is quite different from so called trinitarian war and which is Clausewitz'strue legacy.
Third, policys subordinating influence over warfare suggests that the overarching political goal for grand strategy in the 21st century should be the containment of violence, with the intent to diminish armed conflict as precondition for establishing democracies.

The work of Carl von Clausewitz continues to bring about heated debate in the 21st Century.

In the s a series of high-profile books in English argued that Clausewitz’s On War had ceased to be a helpful guide to war today. They included: John Keegan, A history of warfare (); Martin van Creveld, The transformation of war (); and Mary Kaldor, New and Old Wars ().
Embracing the perspectives of history, philosophy and political science, the book reconsiders both the text and its current implications. Traditional interpretations of On War are put into fresh light; neglected passages are re-examined; and new insights are derived from the conjunction between Clausewitz's text and today's challenges.
