Book cover

"Is War Diminishing?" by Alexander Baltzly is a thought-provoking and well-researched exploration of the trends and patterns of warfare throughout history. Baltzly presents a compelling argument that, contrary to popular belief, war is actually decreasing in frequency and intensity over time. He provides extensive data and analysis to support his claims, drawing on a wide range of historical examples and case studies.

One of the strengths of the book is its thorough examination of the various factors that contribute to the decline of war, such as advancements in technology, changes in political structures, and evolving norms and values. Baltzly also addresses potential counterarguments and challenges to his thesis, demonstrating a nuanced and balanced approach to the subject.

Overall, "Is War Diminishing?" is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the trajectory of warfare and its implications for the future. Baltzly's insightful analysis and persuasive arguments make a compelling case for the idea that humanity may be on the path towards a more peaceful world.
