Democracy and War

Timing is everything! A recent academic “splash” has been made by the E. Mansfield & J. Snyder new book, Electing to Fight, the subject of a meeting at the Cato Institute. Rather than listening to that session, or bothering with the book, I recommend “Spengler’s” piece discussing it. Although he has their first names reversed, the links to their work and the Cato meeting are included, along with several of his own articles that are of interest, certainly that on one of David Beito’s favorite people, Victor Davis Hanson, ”No true Scotsman starts a war”.

"one of David Beito’s favorite people, Victor Davis Hanson." I detect a hint of sarcasm?
