Democracy and War: Rejoinder
By Ted Galen Carpenter
This article appeared in the Summer 1998 issue of The Independent Review


In our winter ‘98 issue, Carpenter argued that Rummel had gone overboard in claiming that democracies never make war on each other. In reply, Rummel methodically critiques Carpenter’s review, leaving Carpenter to claim that Rummel arbitrarily redefines “democracy” whenever confronted with examples of warlike democracies.
