This paper explores the history of conflict in Europe, focusing on modern day times, after World War II and specifically the end of the Cold War. The essay considers some implications of the end of the Cold War for future conflict in Europe and elsewhere. The Cold War itself is discussed first, as an extension of the familiar system of state, followed by a discussion of the Cold War experience, with consideration given to the means of making war, by whom war can be made, and implications for the future development of global power relationships.

From the Paper:

"Prior to 1914, Europe was spared a full general coalition war during the 99 years between Waterloo and Sarajevo, but the Crimean War arguably fell just short of qualifying, while the years between 1815 and 1871 saw several wars between individual Great Powers as well as the nearly continent-wide abortive revolution of 1848. The nearly half-century between 1871 and 1914 (a period comparable in length to the Cold War era) saw no wars between major powers, but repeated wars in the Balkans, out of which a general great-power war finally arose. Going back further still, war was endemic in Europe through the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries."
