From International Security Readers.
Modern deterrence theories were conceived in the aftermath of World War I. Given the human and political carnage associated with the Great War, it was natural for historians, military strategists, policy analysts, diplomats, and politicians to try to understand why the breakdown occurred. The standard interpretation of the coming of World War I provided the intellectual foundation for classical deterrence theory and its variants.
Modern Deterrence Theory: Research Trends, Policy Debates, and Methodological Controversies
From International Security Readers. Edited by Michael E. Brown , Owen R. Lynn-Jones and Steven E. New approaches to understanding war and peace in the changing international system.
What causes war? How can wars be prevented? Scholars and policymakers have sought the answers to these questions for centuries. Although wars continue to occur, recent scholarship has made progress toward developing more sophisticated and perhaps more useful theories on the causes and prevention of war. This volume includes essays by leading scholars on contemporary approaches to understanding war and peace.
The essays include expositions, analyses, and critiques of some of the more prominent and enduring explanations of war. Several authors discuss realist theories of war, which focus on the distribution of power and the potential for offensive war. Others examine the prominent hypothesis that the spread of democracy will usher in an era of peace. In light of the apparent increase in nationalism and ethnic conflict, several authors present hypotheses on how nationalism causes war and how such wars can be controlled.
Contributors also engage in a vigorous debate on whether international institutions can promote peace. In a section on war and peace in the changing international system, several authors consider whether rising levels of international economic independence and environmental scarcity will influence the likelihood of war.

Conflict and Cooperation in International Relations
The democratic peace theory posits that democracies are hesitant to engage in armed conflict with other identified democracies. Those who dispute this theory often do so on grounds that it conflates correlation with causation , and that the academic definitions of 'democracy' and 'war' can be manipulated so as to manufacture an artificial trend. Though the democratic peace theory was not rigorously or scientifically studied until the s, the basic principles of the concept had been argued as early as the s in the works of philosopher Immanuel Kant and political theorist Thomas Paine. Kant foreshadowed the theory in his essay Perpetual Peace: A Philosophical Sketch written in , although he thought that a world with only constitutional republics was only one of several necessary conditions for a perpetual peace. Kant's theory was that a majority of the people would never vote to go to war, unless in self-defense. Therefore, if all nations were republics, it would end war, because there would be no aggressors. In earlier but less cited works, Thomas Paine made similar or stronger claims about the peaceful nature of republics.

Democratic peace theory
War , in the popular sense, a conflict between political groups involving hostilities of considerable duration and magnitude. In the usage of social science , certain qualifications are added. Sociologists usually apply the term to such conflicts only if they are initiated and conducted in accordance with socially recognized forms. They treat war as an institution recognized in custom or in law. Military writers usually confine the term to hostilities in which the contending groups are sufficiently equal in power to render the outcome uncertain for a time.
Realism is most often depicted as a tradition or perspective on international relations explaining war and military conflict. This is not without reason as realists have focused on war as a major or even the primary mechanism of change in international relations. This position is echoed in realism up until today. Likewise, John Mearsheimer, in The Tragedy of Great Power Politics , argues that the most war-prone regions are those characterised by unbalanced multipolarity with a potential hegemon seeking to change the established order in its favour by military means, and that the growth of China constitutes the greatest danger to world peace Mearsheimer This does not mean that realists are unconcerned with peace.
One hundred years ago the Treaty of Versailles, the centrepiece of a set of treaties and agreements collectively known as the Paris peace settlements, was signed in the glittering Hall of Mirrors in the former home of France's Sun King. For some, the war those settlements brought to an end was a distinct period in international relations, one dominated for the preceding century by a European state system that had endured since the Middle Ages.
