About this item

Traditional explorations of war look through the lens of history and military science, focusing on big events, big battles, and big generals.  By contrast, The SAGE Encyclopedia of War: Social Science Perspective views war through the lens of the social sciences, looking at the causes, processes and effects of war and drawing from a vast group of fields such as communication and mass media, economics, political science and law, psychology and sociology.


Key features include:


  • More than 650 entries organized in an A-to-Z format, authored and signed by key academics in the field
  • Entries conclude with cross-references and further readings, aiding the researcher further in their research journeys
  • An alternative Reader’s Guide table of contents groups articles by disciplinary areas and by broad themes
  • A helpful Resource Guide directing researchers to classic books, journals and electronic resources for more in-depth study

This important and distinctive work will be a key reference for all researchers in the fields of political science, international relations and sociology.
