Summary (From the publisher):

Galactic Empires locked in combat, doomsday weapons that can annihilate whole worlds, starship troopers carrying the banner of war across the universe... SF writers have always found war a fertile subject. But there are some alternatives...

ISAAC ASIMOV on peace and freedom through cybernetic regimentation; POUL ANDERSON on warfare by formalized political assassination; BEN BOVA's duelling machine; HARLAN ELLISON's god-beast that brought a terrible lesson; JOE HALDEMAN on privately-sponsored nuclear blackmail; and stories from GEORGE ALEC EFFINGER, WILLIAM NABORS, MACK REYNOLDS, DAMON KNIGHT and HARRY HARRISON.
