The International Studies Association and Social Science History Association devoted panels to discussing the book at their annual meetings.

The book is being translated into Chinese. What is it Good For?: For all of its horrors, over the last 10, years, war has made the world safer and richer, as it is virtually the only way that people have found to create large, internally pacified societies that then drive down the rate of violent death. The lesson of the last 10, years of military history, he argues, is that the way to end war is by learning to manage it, not by trying to wish it out of existence.


Morris also devotes a chapter to the Gombe Chimpanzee War in Tanzania. The German translation of the book, Krieg: Wozu er gut istwas published by Campus Verlag in October Five more translations are being prepared.
