Man, the State and War : A Theoretical Analysis Paperback
What are the causes of war? To answer this question, Professor Waltz examines the ideas of major thinkers throughout the history of Western civilization.
He explores works both by classic political philosophers, such as St.
Augustine, Hobbes, Kant, and Rousseau, and by modern psychologists and anthropologists to discover ideas intended to explain war among states and related prescriptions for peace.

Review by HadriantheBlind
A very impressive book which has still held up over the past few decades. Analyzes the relations between human nature and war, the structure and nature of political states, and also the structure of the international diplomatic system. A very systematic and solid introduction to neo-realist analysis of modern politics, and one that still is very much worth reading.
