"Russett finds this [the proposition that democracies do not fight each other] to be an extraordinarily robust conclusion... [The book] presents a challenge to realists while providing a rigorous undergirding to what has become a widespread view."--Francis Fukuyama, Foreign Affairs "The ambition and scope of the study provides the illuminating and unexpected insights into the relationships between war and democracy."--Roland Dannreuther, Survival "The descriptive phase of scholarly research on the absence of war between democratic dyads has been largely completed, and attention is now shifting to alternative explanations for this well-confirmed empirical generalization. The best place to begin, both for a summary of the descriptive evidence and for an attempt to explain it, is Bruce Russett's Grasping the Democratic Peace."--Jack S. Levy, International Studies Review "In Grasping the Democratic Peace, Bruce Russett has published a powerful book clarifying the theoretical debate and producing additional support for the relative pacifism of democracies from previously untapped sources. The book will quickly claim a secure place in the literature for its insight and empirical originality. No student of international relations can fail to profit from a close read."---David A. Lake, The Journal of Politics "Bruce Russett's laudable book summarizes, dissects, and expands our understanding of the disinclination shown by democracies to fight each other, a finding that has spawned a minor cottage industry of analytic studies... the book combines rigor and relevance, maturity and originality."--American Political Science Review
