Between Peace and War: The Nature of International Crisis
Sunday 13/August/2017 - 10:01 AM
When is war is the result of a nation's deliberate decision to advance its vital interests by force of arms? When is it brought about by miscalculation? What causes policy-makers to misjudge the consequences of their actions? This book takes up these and other questions in a comparative study of the origins, politics, and outcomes of international crisis based on data from 27 historical cases.
Editorial Reviews "Lebow has produced a significant work on international crises and their relationship to international politics. His integration of history and international relations theory is particularly laudatory, and he draws some important conclusions concerning deterrence theory and crisis management." (Jerel A. Rosati American Political Science Review)
