On War

Princeton University Press, 1976. Hardcover. Hardcover. xii+ 717 pp. Near fine, foxing about the edge sof the text block. In dust jacket with some tidemarking on the lower spine strip and bottom rear panel (not affecting the book itself). Recognized the most important of all modern printings and treatments of Clausewitz's "On War", the most significant attempt in Western history to understand war both in its internal dynamics and as an instrument of policy. In editions published after Clausewitz's death, there were numerous changes in the text that frequently falsified or obsscured the authors' meaning. In this edition, the translatinga nd editing historians return to the original, making it avaailable to the English-speaking world in a reliable and readable text. This edition contains introductory essays by Howard, Paret, and Bernard Brodie and a commentary by Brodie. Very Good / very good. Item #E24050
