?Cormier ably defends an interesting and provocative thesis challenging the received wisdom that Kant and especially Hegel had little or no important impact on Clausewitz. Not only does the text include detailed scholarship on Clausewitz, but Cormier also extends his thesis to the domains of communist and anarchist appropriations of Clausewitz and Hegel. It concludes with an informative and lively epilogue exploring contemporary implications for war theory. The text is interesting, engaging, and full of insights not only regarding these key trajectories, but many other matters as well ? an original, thoughtful, and well-conceived book.? Bruce Gilbert, Bishop?s University
?Cormier has written an intriguing dissection of dialectical war theory that students of philosophy and ethics will find indispensable.? Antulio Echevarria, US Army War College
"Scholars of Clausewitz, historians, and philosophers will find this volume a fascinating argument about the influence of Kant and Hegel on war theory generally and on Clausewitz's work in particular." The Strategy Bridge
"Cormier makes a strong case that Clausewitz's dialectical thinking was derived from Hegel." Canadian Military Journal
"An interesting book ... his discussion on Hegel is illuminating and direct. ... a thoughtful, well-argued contribution. Recommended." Choice
