Professor Rosella Cappella Zielinski Publishes New Book on War Financing

September 9th, 2016 in Uncategorized

Professor Rosella Cappella Zielinski has recently published, with Cornell University Press, her book, How States Pay for Wars. 

“Armies fight battles, states fight wars. To focus solely on armies is to neglect the broader story of victory and defeat. Military power stems from an economic base, and without wealth, soldiers cannot be paid, weapons cannot be procured, and food cannot be bought. War finance is among the most consequential decisions any state makes: how a state finances a war affects not only its success on the battlefield but also its economic stability and its leadership tenure. In How States Pay for Wars, Rosella Cappella Zielinski clarifies several critical dynamics lying at the nexus of financial and military policy.”
