    1. No I knew the answer before reading the book, but the detailed argument can be instructive.Coker writes several convincing reasons why war will continue War, he says, is still evolving in that it can maximize the competitive edge of this group or that War will continue as long as that s true The geopolitical divide of have and have not nations, the continuing economic inequality, will always contribute to war Human values differ widely there s no single vision of peace which can have meaning acr [...]


    2. This book has the virtues of being quite short I read it in a single sitting at the library and very accessible the language is grade school level and it assumes almost no background knowledge But that s about it for praiseworthiness This book s musings are thoroughly trite and thoughtless It s clear the author just banged out a long rant on the unavoidability of war one evening and emailed in the manuscript to the publisher the next day On the natural inevitability of war, he actually thinks wa [...]

    5. Christopher Coker in his latest book asks Can War Be Eliminated I personally wasn t aware that there was a debate on this topic because despite all the ideas that advocates of liberalism have put forward including trade interdependence, the democratic peace thesis, and liberal institutionalism among others, wars still occur Rather than taking the international relations approach, Coker uses philosophy to argue that war is a part of mankind s evolutionary process and because of this war will cont [...]


    6. I think I must ve heard an interview with the author on BBC Radio 4 and sufficiently intrigued to buy a copy of this book to read for myself I found it to be an overview of the issue it s only just over 100 pages long in its text which was helpful but I was left wanting And I m not sure why Perhaps I didn t feel I read enough of what the author thought Perhaps it was because it was too much of a brief assessment of what others had written I don t know I think I want to read it again But I don t [...]
