Randall L. Schweller

Oxford University Press

Offers an appraisal of the democratic peace theory from the perspective of both classical and structural realism. It argues that while democracy can ameliorate some of the causes of war cited by realists, it cannot entirely eliminate them, and that the validity of the democratic peace proposition seems to depend on democracies being prosperous, satisfied, and developed states.

Keywords:   classical realism, democracy, democratic peace, prosperity, structural realism, war
