Today, the ideas of Carl von Clausewitz (1780-1831) are employed almost ubiquitously in strategic studies, military history and defence literatures, but often in a manner which distorts their true meaning. In this book, Waldman explores Clausewitza€™s central theoretical device for understanding war - the a€˜remarkable trinitya€™ of politics, chance and passion. By situating the great Prussian in historical context, he presents a conception truer to Clausewitza€™s intention. Seeking to achieve this through an in-depth reinterpretation of On War and Clausewitza€™s other writings, conducted through the prism of the trinity, this book draws on existing studies but argues that there is room for clarification. It presents fresh perspectives into aspects of Clausewitz's thought and emphasises elements of his theory that have often been neglected. Furthermore, it provides a solid basis from which debate on the nature of modern war can move forward.Availableonlineat:alt;http://www.clausewitz.com/readings/Beyerchen/ BeyerschenNonlinearity2.pdfagt;, retrieved 20 April 2007. ...
