Summary
"This book boldly challenges conventional wisdom about the value of preventive war, beginning with the rise of Hitler's Germany through the disastrous invasion of Iraq. Silverstone argues that the Rhineland crisis leading up to WWII presents a critical case for studying power shifts among states--and the preventive war temptation that results."--Provided
