I cannot recommend more highly the 2011 masterpiece by Robert Trivers, with
whom most of you will be familiar.  He is a biologist and all-around
intelligent guy who takes every social science to task (although he
approves of the new evolutionary psychology).

He analyzes all U.S. wars of the 20th century. Religion, economics,
everything.  He gives us examples from subhuman subjects such as ants.

Very idea dense.  Slow reading, a good thing.  No vague concepts.  Lots of
studies of the best sort.  Some humor:  "The safety culture at Japanese
nuclear reactors was so bad that NASA could admire it."

Highest recommendation.
