Why We Fight

Most people think war is easy and peace is hard. But decades of practical experience and social science tell us something different: War is hard and finding peace is easier than you think. Why We Fight will cover the five reasons that Blattman identifies to explain why gangs, nations, and other groups go to war, as well as what peacemakers can do to stop it. Why We Fight will be released in 2021-22.
