For almost a half-century the Cold War, its presumed origins, and its anticipated consequences blinded most scholars to the global problems underlying the conflict. With the sudden demise of the Cold War, it is clear that new thinking about conflict in world politics is essential. Assembling research from a variety of disciplines and cultural perspectives, Behavior, Culture, and Conflict in World Politics indicates that conflict between states is not substantially different from conflict within families or societies. Based on this fundamental assertion, the contributors take the first steps toward articulating a general theory of conflict.
