Dale C. Copeland, an Associate Professor of International Relations in the Woodrow Wilson Department of Politics at the University of Virginia, is the author of The Origins of Major War (Cornell University Press/ Cornell Studies in Security Affairs, 2013). His book offers a more nuanced view of how war comes about than those of other theorists. One review of his book states that…

He specifies more precisely the conditions under which state decline leads to conflict, drawing empirical support from the critical cases of the twentieth century as well as major wars spanning from ancient Greece to the Napoleonic Wars.
