APSA’s 2010 Best Book Award, Conflict Processes Section, awarded to How Wars End

Another Princeton University Press book is receiving an honor from the American Political Science Association (APSA) this year – Dan Reiter’s How Wars End is the winner of the 2010 Best Book Award, in the Conflict Processes Section!

The Best Book Award is given to works making outstanding contributions to the study of political conflict, published in the two calendar years prior to the year in which the award is given.  In How Wars End, Reiter explores the reasons behind why some countries choose to end wars while others continue to fight, discussing more than twenty cases of war-termination behavior.  He concludes with a discussion of twentieth-century American foreign policy, framed within the context of the theory he develops.

How Wars End also achieved a place on the 2010 Arthur Ross Book Award’s shortlist as the best book published on international affairs.
