Arms and Influence

Arms and Influence

Description

"This is a brilliant and hardheaded book. It will frighten those who prefer not to dwell on the unthinkable and infuriate those who have taken refuge in stereotypes and moral attitudinizing."-Gordon A. Craig, New York Times Book Review

"A grim but carefully reasoned and coldly analytical book. . . . One of the most frightening previews which this reviewer has ever seen of the roads that lie just ahead in warfare."-Los Angeles Times

Originally published more than fifty years ago, this landmark book explores the ways in which military capabilities-real or imagined-are used, skillfully or clumsily, as bargaining power. Anne-Marie Slaughter's new introduction to the work shows how Schelling's framework-conceived of in a time of superpowers and mutually assured destruction-still applies to our multipolar world, where wars are fought as much online as on the ground.
