Ultimately, Cormier seeks out the limits to dialectical war theory and explores the greater paradoxes the method reveals: can so-called “rational” theories of war hold up under the pressures of irrational propositions, such as lone-wolf attacks, the circular logic of a “war to end all wars,” or the apparent folly of mutually assured destruction?

This Penguin edition is omnipresent in libraries and school bookshelves and is thus an important source for understanding Clausewitz's subsequent reception and reputation.

Abstract: "Drawing on Clausewitz’s classical theory, we argue that the emergence of mass nationalism following the French Revolution profoundly altered the nature of the units constituting the interstate system, thereby transforming the conduct of interstate warfare. In particular, our position is that Clausewitz did not do much (if any) work on the manuscript of ; drafts of books VII & VIII 1820's "Observations on the Wars of the Austrian Succession" "Strategic Critique of the Campaign of 1814 in France" 1823-25 Completion of "The Campaign of 1812 in Russia" Observations on Prussia in Her Great Catastrophe (after 1824) 1826 or later "Some Comments on the War of the Spanish Succession after Reading the Letters of Madame de Maintenon to the Princess des Ursins" "Some Comments on the War of the Spanish Succession after Reading the Letters of Madame de Maintenon to the Princess des Ursins" 1827-30 Revisions of (minimal if any) The Campaign of 1796 in Italy The Campaigns of 1799 in Italy and Switzerland The Campaign of 1815 in France 1831 "Europe since the Polish Partitions" "On the Basic Question of Germany's Existence" (Berlin: Ferdinand Dümmlers, 1835).

[Forthcoming] This is an early and much shorter version, written at the invitation of the Società Italiana di Storia Militare, of the paper "Clausewitz's Categories of War and the Supersession of 'Absolute War'" (listed below). "Clausewitz's Categories of War and the Supersession of 'Absolute War.'" . It discusses the difficulties in categorizing warfare, the evolution of Clausewitz's approach to the problem, and a number of related translation issues. Concerns a letter Clausewitz wrote in 1808 to August Wilhelm von Schlegel, a poet and leader of German Romanticism. Rapoport's long, interesting, but hostile introduction (the ire of which is aimed not at Clausewitz himself but at Henry Kissinger and the "neo-Clausewitzians" responsible for the Vietnam War) has been extremely influential on subsequent treatments of Clausewitz, particularly John Keegan's. Building up a genealogy of dialectical war theory and integrating Hegel as a co-founder with Clausewitz of the method, Cormier uncovers a common logic that shaped the fighting doctrines and ethics of modern war. "Clausewitz, Lenin and Communist Military Attitudes Today." . Despite cutting much of Clausewitz's own discussion for space, it retains many of Maude's Victorian-era imperialist and Social Darwinist insertions, giving the impression that these are part of Clausewitz's own presentation. The introduction by Ralph Peters is most interesting. , Youri Cormier lifts the fog on this iconic work by explaining its philosophical underpinnings. Although they failed, these 19th-century thinkers, each operating from a different perspective, anticipated what we’ve come to call chaos and complexity theory. Tracing the historical and philosophical roots of modern war from the 17th Century through to the present day, this book reveals that far from paralyzing the project of re-problematisating war, the emergence of NCW affords us an opportunity to rethink war in new and philosophically challenging ways."
