9780521763189: Military Threats: The Costs of Coercion and the Price of Peace

Is military power central in determining which states get their voice heard? Must states run a high risk of war to communicate credible intent? Slantchev shows that states can often obtain concessions without incurring higher risks when they use military threats. Unlike diplomatic forms of communication, physical military moves improve a state's expected performance in war. If the opponent believes the threat, it will be more likely to back down. Military moves are also inherently costly, so only resolved states are willing to pay these costs. Slantchev argues that powerful states can secure better peaceful outcomes and lower the risk of war, but the likelihood of war depends on the extent to which a state is prepared to use military threats to deter challenges to peace and compel concessions without fighting. The price of peace may therefore be large: states invest in military forces that are both costly and unused.

Book Description:

Is military power central in determining which states get their voice heard in international affairs? The exercise of force is costly, so states often have trouble persuading their opponents that they would resort to arms unless their demands are met. In this book, Slantchev examines just how effective military threats are.

About the Author:

Branislav L. Slantchev is Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, San Diego. He specialises in the use of game theory to study international conflict, negotiations, and the political economy of war finance.
