Arms and influence by Thomas C Schelling( Book )

64 editions published between 1966 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 2,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditionally, Americans have viewed war as an alternative to diplomacy, and military strategy as the science of victory. Today, however, in our world of nuclear weapons, military power is not so much exercised as threatened. It is, Mr. Schelling says, bargaining power, and the exploitation of this power, for good or evil, to preserve peace or to threaten war, is diplomacy -- the diplomacy of violence. The author concentrates in this book on the way in which military capabilities -- real or imagined -- are used, skillfully or clumsily, as bargaining power. He sees the steps taken by the US during the Berlin and Cuban crises as not merely preparations for engagement, but as signals to an enemy, with reports from the adversary's own military intelligence as our most important diplomatic communications

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg, a high-level Pentagon official and Vietnam War strategist, concludes that the war is based on decades of lies and leaks 7,000 pages of top secret documents to the New York Times, making headlines around the world. [The film tells how] one man's profound change of heart created a landmark struggle involving America's newspapers, president and Supreme Court, a political thriller whose events led directly to Watergate, Nixon's resignation and the end of the Vietnam War."
Choice and consequence by Thomas C Schelling( Book )

23 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Schelling is a political economist "conspicuous for wandering"--An errant economist. In Choice and Consequence, he ventures into the area where rationality is ambiguous in order to look at the tricks people use to try to quit smoking or lose weight. He explores topics as awesome as nuclear terrorism, as sordid as blackmail, as ineffable as daydreaming, as intimidating as euthanasia. He examines ethical issues wrapped up in economics, unwrapping the economics to disclose ethical issues that are misplaced or misidentified

13 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strategies of commitment and other essays by Thomas C Schelling( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schelling--a 2005 Nobel Prize winner-- has been one of the four or five most important social scientists of the past fifty years, and this collection shows why. These essays convey his unique perspective on individuals and society. This perspective has several characteristics: it is strategic in that it assumes that an important part of people's behavior is motivated by the thought of influencing other people's expectations; it views the mind as being separable into two or more parts (rational/irrational; present-minded/future-minded); it is motivated by policy concerns--smoking and other addictions, global warming, segregation, nuclear war; and while it accepts many of the basic assumptions of economics--that people are forward-looking, rational decision makers, that resources are scarce, and that incentives are important--it is open to modifying them when appropriate, and open to the findings and insights of other social science disciplines.--From publisher description
