Second Edition of Cashman's 'What Causes War?' Announced

SALISBURY, MD---Dr. Greg Cashman of Salisbury University’s Political Science Department will not return to the classroom next fall — but his book will.

Rowman & Littlefield Publishers recently announced the release of a second edition of Cashman’s 1993 book What Causes War? An Introduction to Theories of International Conflict. The political science professor retired at the end of the spring semester after more than 33 years at SU.

In the past two decades, the book has been used as a text for university courses in international relations and conflict analysis at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Topics covered include human aggression, psychological explanations for war, flawed government decision making, democracies and war, internal politics and diversionary wars, rivalry relationships, dispute escalation and conflict spirals, deterrence failures, and balance of power explanations.

In addition to What Causes War?, Cashman is co-author of An Introduction to the Causes of War: Patterns of Interstate Conflict from WWI to Iraq (2007) with Dr. Len Robinson, also of the Political Science Department.
