To Make and Keep Peace Among Ourselves and with All Nations

Angelo Codevilla asks,"What does it mean for the United States to be at peace? How is it to be won and preserved in our time?" Noting that our government’s increasingly unlimited powers flow in part from our statesmen’s inability to stay out of wars or win them, he shows that peace among ourselves depends substantially on making peace with other peoples. This study of the principles of statecraft takes us from Greco-Roman times through Christian and early modern thought, concentrating on the various ways in which US statesmen have dealt with the problems of peace and war.
