This chapter discusses how Clausewitz saw the relationship between war and policy and war and politics. Some scholars have focused more on the former than the latter. In parts of On War, Clausewitz succumbed to political determinism, excluding the roles of culture and technology in warfare, or subsuming them under the term politics.

Keywords:   On War, war and policy, war and politics, culture in warfare, technology in warfare
