Arms and Influence, Paperback / softback Book

Arms and Influence Paperback / softback

Part of the Veritas Paperbacks series


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. "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.
