About this title

Synopsis:

Why do some international crises lead to war, while others are resolved peacefully? Does the outcome depend mainly on underlying structural causes, or on decision makers' choices and diplomacy? In this book James Richardson examines nine major international crises from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in order to explain the differing outcomes of each. The author evaluates the main theories that have served to explain crisis behavior, emphasizing the conflict between theories based on an assumption of rationality, and those which emphasize the nonrational.

Book Description:

Why do some international crises lead to war, while others are resolved peacefully? Nine major international crises are examined in order to explain the differing outcomes of each, in relationship to theories that explain crisis behavior--nonrational as well as rational.
