The ideas of Carl von Clausewitz (1780-1831) - which remain at the heart of strategic analysis today - have hitherto been examined largely in isolation from their cultural and philosophical roots in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Azar Gat now demonstrates the extent to which culture affects military theory.

A one-volume collection of Azar Gat's acclaimed trilogy, it traces the quest for a general theory of war from its origins in the Enlightenment.

Azar Gat, The Origins of Military Thought: From the Enlightenment to Clausewitz (Oxford and New York: Oxford University Press, 1989), 213-14. Most specialists accept the claim, in an undated note published by Marie von Clausewitz as part of the front matter to On War, that Clausewitz regarded the first chapter of Book One alon. s finished (On War, 70). But even this view depends upon accepting that this second note was written immediately prior to Clausewitz’s departure for Breslau in 1830, a claim that Gat has disputed. Werner Halweg also assigned the undated note to 1827.

This book sheds new light on the origins and nature of modern military thinking. The ideas of Carl von Clausewitz (1780-1831)--which remain at the core of strategic analysis today--have previously been examined apart from their 18th-century cultural and philosophical roots. Gat here demonstrates the extent to which culture affects military theory by relating a series of military thinkers to their cultural backgrounds. He also provides a provocative critique of Clausewitz's classic work On War, and demonstrates how the major currents of modern military thought have evolved from the cultural frameworks and historical outlooks of both the German Movement and the Enlightenment.

This is an excellent book and absolutely critical to the ongoing debates on military strategy. The US military has come to revere Clausewitz as gospel. Dr Gat has made it possible to place Clausewitz in context of the philosophical influences that shaped the man. Dr Gat's writing is easily accessible and engaging, even for such a daunting topic.
