Far from being a detached theorist, Carl von Clausewitz was as intensely aware of the cultural and intellectual currents of his time as he was engaged in its political and military conflicts. The society in which he lived and the people with whom he served affected the analytic method he developed in his writing and the conclusions he reached. The essays in this volume examine Clausewitz in comparison with teachers, friends, and opponents, a perspective enriched by significant documents which have been previously ignored. They deepen our knowledge of Clausewitz's life and how he enlarged his understanding of warfare from its mechanisms and the interaction of its elements to its apparently permanent place in the relation between states.

-...an enlightening addition to our ever-growing library of reflexions on Clausewitz's legacy.- - The Journal of Military History

-Overall the essays published here reflect impressively the intensive occupation of the by now 91-years-old historian in the life and work of Carl von Clausewitz. Apart from the research carried out of the German historian Werner Hahlweg and the French sociologist Raymond Aron, it is Peter Paret's work that has greatly enriched our knowledge of Clausewitz and his time.- - Militargeschichtliche Zeitschrift

-Peter Paret has given us yet another fine addition to the literature on Clausewitz, as well as his era.- - Journal of Modern History
