New article on the notion of "politics" in Clausewitz's theory of war

August 20, 2020

ClausewitzGerman Political Science Quarterly (PVS) just published my article about "Politics and its limits in Clausewitz's thought on war" on its homepage (open access, in German) and will print it in one of its next issues. In the piece, I reconstruct Clausewitz' notion of "politics" through a systematic reading of his works and demonstrate that his thinking is not as outdated as some people claim. On the contrary, his theory of war provides a fruitful analytical framework to understand the transformations of political violence in our time.
