Why do nations fight against one another? What drives leaders to decide whether to send troops to war or sign a peace accord? What goes into the mind of parents while sending their children into battle? What is the most important factor that brings triumph or collapse on the battlefield?
Entire libraries have been written on these historical enigmas in attempting to understand what happened post factum.
However, only a few have attempted to analyze their vectors in the 21st century.
Prof. Passig engages in these vectors with great courage and simple language.
He delves into these issues in order to identify the major confrontations of the first half of the 21st century and zooms in to identify how these geopolitical trends would be reflected in the Middle East and in the Israeli-Arab conflict.
