Thesis: The world throughout its history has been almost continually at war, with the roots of major conflicts typically lying in little-known wars of etc., etc. And while the actual influence and impact of these minor outbreaks may remain a bit vague here (did the little-known conflict provide a seminal example? mark a watershed? act as a spark?) Axelrod’s point is well taken. A better-than-average coffee-table book, but the sketch format makes some of the more complex entries hard to follow and of little use to the general reader.
