What causes policy-makers to misjudge the consequences of thier actions? Between Peace and War takes up theses and other questions in a comparative study of the origins, politics, and outcomes of international crisis based on data from twenty-seven historical cases. Lebow offers a typology of acute international crisis, using data from his sample to identify three distinct types of crisis. Using cognitive and motivational models of information processing, he explains the slow rate of learning and erratic steering that often characterize the management of these confrontations. In the final part of his book, Lebow examines the relationship between crisis and the underlying cause of international conflict. --From cover."@en ;
