A closer reading of Clausewitz gives rise to the following implications for warfare in the 21st century. First, the war on terror, as with all wars, is irreversibly political in nature, and requires a decidedly political approach. (...) Second, globalization intensifies the role of politics, and indeed reduces reaction time within all three elements of Clausewitz's wondrous trinity, which is quite different from so called trinitarian war and which is Clausewitz's true legacy. Third, policys subordinating influence over warfare suggests that the overarching political goal for grand strategy in the 21st century should be the containment of violence, with the intent to diminish armed conflict as precondition for establishing democracies.

Illuminations of an enduring theory
on 26 November 2007 - Published on Amazon.com
Hew Strachan and Andreas Herberg-Rothe have produced an important - no, an essential - volume of articles that illuminate and explore the core ideas of Carl von Clausewitz. The results of an Oxford Conference on Clausewitz in 2006, the articles both engage current thinking on Clausewitzian theory and open up new areas of relevance of that theory and philosophy. This book is the single most important collection of essays on the subject since Michael Handel produced his volume of essays in 1986. The subject matter discussed ranges from the well-traveled (Clausewitzian ideas of war and politics) to the mostly ignored (the ideas of Defense, the long-overlooked Book VI of "On War.") The book is for serious students and researchers on war, not the bloggers and b.s. artists who cut and paste others' ideas and express them out of context.
