Using a cognitive model to explain decisions in five well-known international crises since 1960, this book aims to illuminate the means by which policy-makers "impose coherence" on ambiguous information, and rapidly evaluate policy options during these fast-paced events.
Competing explanations; the crisis-bargaining code model; case studies - the Berlin Wall crisis of 1961, the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, the 1970 Jordanian crisis, the 1973 Middle East War, the 1990-1991 Gulf War.
