Few topics are as important in the study of international relations as the causes of wealth and poverty, and their interaction with militarization. Few scholars have contributed more to understanding these issues than Bruce Russett. Here Russett shows the linkages between wealth and conflict both substantively and temporally. This is an important statement about the development of the field, something students and researchers will benefit from greatly.
