Volume 19, Issue 2 (2005) Special Issue: WAR, Volume 2
In the months preceding the U.S. presidential election in November 2004, George Bush and John Kerry conducted what passed for a serious debate on U.S. foreign policy, especially the rationale for the war in Iraq and on the state of the "war on terror." It was easy to lose sight of the primary purpose of these two special issues of the New England Journal of Public Policy on war. So I should, perhaps, remind our readers.
The question posed was: what lessons can we draw from the wars and conflicts of the twentieth century that might help us to take preventative steps to preclude the outbreak of war and conflicts in the twenty-first? This is the second volume of the two-part series.
