Defining Moment: The Threat and Use of Force in American Foreign Policy
Barry M. Blechman and Tamara Cofman Wittes examine the uses of military threats and military interventions in the Bush and first Clinton administrations. Based on case studies and interviews with U.S. decision makers, they conclude that domestic and international political constraints are preventing U.S. leaders from making threats decisive enough to persuade foreign leaders to comply with U.S. demands.
