Book coverEndorsements of Winning the War on War by Joshua S. Goldstein:

“Winning the War on War reveals the greatest untold story of the past two decades – that contrary to popular impressions, war has become substantially rarer and less dangerous. Joshua Goldstein is widely recognized as one of the world’s authorities on international relations, and he recounts this story with deep expertise but also a light touch, interleaving the amazing facts with fascinating character portrayals, disarming personal reminiscences, and forgotten-but-important historical moments. This book could change the understanding of policy makers, opinion leaders, and a wide readership.”
Steven Pinker, Professor of Psychology, Harvard University; author of the bestseller The Blank Slate

“Winning the War on War does what no other book has attempted, providing a synoptic view, and narrative, of the slow but successful evolution of UN peacekeeping. It takes an unusual and unorthodox approach that works very well indeed.”
Paul Kennedy, J. Richardson Dilworth Professor of History, Yale University; author of the bestseller, The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers

“The most important political book of the year.”
Gregg Easterbrook, Author of The Progress Paradox

“Professor Goldstein has written a novel, highly informative, and exceedingly valuable book.”
David Hamburg, President Emeritus, Carnegie Corporation of New York; former president, American Association for the Advancement of Science; author of No More Killing Fields

“A highly readable account of the nature and problems of peacekeeping, … an important contribution to public understanding of international affairs.”
Brian Urquhart, Former Undersecretary-General of the UN; author of Ralph Bunche: An American Life and Hammarskjöld

“Joshua Goldstein … tells the untold story of how we seem to be winning the long-term fight against war, and why. His book should be required reading for policymakers and the media.”
Nils Petter Gleditsch, Peace Research Institute Oslo; president of the International Studies Association 2008-09

“Goldstein’s argument that we’re actually beating back war seems counterintuitive, but he marshals some impressive arguments.”
