‘Think Again: War’ (Foreign Policy, 7 October 2011)

I will not comment on this link too much at this point.  I have a things waiting for me to attend to.  But this article is really useful for students who want to develop a critical approach to their legal studies essays in the ‘World Order’ section of the HSC examination.

‘Think Again: War’ (Foreign Policy, 7 October 2011)

The author of the article is Joshua Goldstein.  He is an professor emeritus of international relations at American University and author of Winning the War on War: The Decline of Armed Conflict Worldwide.  In the article, he goes through six commonly held assumptions about global conflicts, and critically re-evaluates.  Students are encouraged to go through the flow of argument, and use them to challenge what you might have learnt in textbooks and from teachers.  Alternatively, you may set out to argue some of the relevant points by Goldstein.

But remember, develop a critical approach to legal studies essays is the key to exam performance.
