How States Pay for Wars

How States Pay for Wars

Studying war has long been done by international relations scholars and military historians, but there has been so little theoretical and conceptual work done on war finance that Cappella Zielinski had to conceptualize an entire vocabulary IN ADDITION to hypothesizing important variables, collecting data, and writing case studies for this book. Because this is the last book of our exceedingly long course (ha ha ha), I’d like to take an evaluative tack in this discussion. To what extent is it valuable to "break open" the state and consider domestic factors and leadership in the study of war? Is the loss of parsimony/simplicity worth it for a more detailed understanding? What is the value added of the conceptual work that she does? What is the value added of the case studies that she offers? Lastly, does this book belong in a world politics course? Why or why not?
