Hear renowned philosopher and founder of the New College of the Humanities AC Grayling discuss the ideas outlined in this his new book War.

War explores the long, tragic history of war and how warfare has changed in response to technological advances.

It probes much-debated theories concerning the causes of war and considers positive changes that may result from war and how these might be achieved without violence.

Ultimately Grayling examines, tests, and challenges the concept of war and proposes that a deeper, more accurate understanding of war may enable us to reduce its frequency, mitigate its horrors, and lessen the burden of its consequences.
