Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0742525570, Paperback)

The sixth edition of this classic text retains the best from earlier editions and adds thirteen new selections that highlight twenty-first century challenges, including terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. Strategies for using force, together with case studies that illustrate the general principles, are hallmarks of the text. New case studies include Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, and South Asia. An entirely new section devoted to "coping with terrorism" looks at the issue from a variety of geographical and philosophical viewpoints.

Praise for previous editions:
"The Use of Force continues to offer a most stimulating blend of contemporary and traditional perspectives on international relations, very valuable for students new to the subject, but essential also for the experienced researcher trying to maintain his or her bearings. The contributions are chosen for their readability and their timelessness. The perspective is always realistic, in the best sense of the term." —George Quester, University of Maryland

"A very useful compendium of articles on critical questions of military force in world politics." —Joseph S. Nye, Jr., Harvard University

"A very useful and balanced collection that covers many facets of the problem, logically organized by two of the most sensible scholars in the field." —Richard K. Betts, The Brookings Institution

"This book is indispensable for courses that deal with security issues."--Robert C. Gray, Franklin & Marshall College

"Written by some of today's most well-known and established academics and foreign policy strategists. . . . This book will make an excellent addition to the professional library of any Marine leader concerned with how the Corps can most effectively structure itself to remain a leading instrument in the implementation of American foreign policy."--Marine Corps Gazette
