PREFACE TO THE 2001 EDITION
five decades have passed since I wrote a doctoral dissertation called “Man, the State, and the State System in Theories of the Causes of War.” After all these years, it is pleasant to recall the origins and evolution of the manuscript. In 1950, when my wife and I were graduate students at Columbia, I devoted the academic year to two demanding tasks— preparing for the two-hour oral examination that determined one’s academic fate and securing a long enough delay in my recall by the army to enable me to be around for the birth of our first child.

Under other circumstances, I might have postponed the examination till fall—a sensible plan since word was around that twothirds of graduate students flunked their orals. By fall, however, I would be in the army again. Graduate students called Professor Fox ALMOST
