The Nature of Peace

前表紙
Transaction Publishers - 367 ページ
The Nature of Peace is the penultimate publication of the collected works of Veblen being published by Transaction. This work contains both a theory of politics and a theory of economics in regard to war. Thorstein Veblen's approach to this topic is at once empirical, instrumental, and matter-of-fact. He poses the question, "What are the terms on which peace at large may hopefully be installed and maintained?" Veblen's quest does not rely on grand forces but rather on various conditions, some propitious and some prohibitive. According to Veblen, peace is a function of pacification of both the dynastic state and the modern state, the class struggle, the control of government by privileged business and other propertied interests, and the workings of the market. War and warlike behavior are not only matters of psychology but of both politics and economics.
