Get Frieden und Krieg: Eine Theorie der Staatenwelt (German PDF

By Raymond Aron,Sigrid Massenbach

Anhand der geschichtlichen Entwicklung seit der Antike, aber mit besonderer Berücksichtigung des 19. und vor allem des 20. Jahrhunderts, unternimmt es Raymond Aron, die Konstanten des politischen Geschehens herauszuarbeiten.
Seine Methode ist ›probabilistisch‹ und vielseitig: Er gründet seine Darstellung nicht auf die Wirtschaft, die Politik, das Soziale oder den Zeitgeist allein. Er verbindet vielmehr jeweils alle in Betracht kommenden Faktoren und erklärt das Ereignis aus ihrem Zusammenspiel.
