In the decades since Doyle's publication, there has been an explosion of empirical studies of the democratic peace. g. Layne 1994; Gowa 1999; Oren 2003; Gartzke 2007), most of the empirical analysis has centred on the causal mechanisms: why do democracies behave differently? The most pro­ minent explanation starts from the interstate level of analysis and predicts that democracies are only more peaceful when engaging other democracies (referred to as the 'dyadic' democratic peace). When a dispute erupts between two democracies, each side knows that the other faces domestic constraints on the use of force.

The annies are them­ selves the cause of wars'. Kant (1797: 168) later argued that any shift in power 'would create a threat to one state by augmenting the power of another'. Kant, however, was not so quick to endorse easy solutions like universal anns reductions. Kant (1795: 95, 1797: 167) warned that in an anarchical system with authoritarian regimes, states tnight be forced to either balance power or even launch 'preventative attacks' against those states undergoing rapid military build-ups.

Answering that question requires some theory about what international security would be like in the absence of the transfonnation in ques­ tion. The key contribution of neorealism and its offshoot sub-schools of offensive and defensive realism is rigorous thinking about such a theory. For neoclassical realists, the­ oretical structures like offensive and defensive realism are not always and everywhere true or false.
