The paper is devoted to the examination of David Hume, William Robertson, and Edward Gibbon's views on the issues of war and peace. The author pays primary attention to the fundamental works of Britain's "historical triumvirate" and argues that the trends in further development of peace studies cannot be understood adequately without considering the importance to study historiographic tradition.
