War and Change in World Politics
by Robert Gilpin
War and Change was for me the first book which provided a compelling explanation of the rise and fall of great powers over time. It is one of the most pervasive patterns in history and one of the patterns that causes the most war in history. In that sense it is a book which is foundational for the study of international diplomacy and conflict.
