James D. Morrow. Order within anarchy: the laws of war as an international institution. Cambridge University Press, 2014.

KZ6385.M67 2014

 

In this new study, Morrow applies the discipline of game theory to the laws of war, and argues that international law can act as a restraint on violence by creating strategic expectations among states and their militaries. He then tests this theory against a data set of compliance with the laws of war in the twentieth century.
