Retreat From Doomsday
Mueller (political science, Univ. of Rochester) examines why there has been no major war since 1945. He says it is not due to blind luck or the paradox of nuclear deterrence, but to nearing the end of a long historical process during which war has been increasingly regarded as repulsive and futile. He uses Denmark and Holland as examples of dropouts from the game of war, but in 1943 they may have questioned the price of that development. Still, this is a well-written and -documented book, and the bibliography is extensive. Mueller's thesis deserves to be read and considered. Highly recommended.- Gerald N.
