Editorial Reviews

Review


"Understanding how and why states fail is not just an urgent task for policymakers
but also for anyone interested in the main trends shaping the world. Weak Links
is a rigorous account of a phenomenon that combines medieval-like realities with
modern conditions. There is no other book like this." -Moisés Naím, Senior Associate, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and author of Illicit


"The phenomenon known as fragile states is typically over-determined but poorly
specified, leading to sweeping conclusions of limited policy relevance. Stewart
Patrick's new book performs a critically important service by analyzing fragile
states in relation to specific security threats."--Chester A. Crocker, Professor of Strategic Studies, Georgetown University


"Weak Links takes on the conventional wisdom that there is a close connection
between weak states and transnational threats like terrorism. The book demonstrates
that the relationship is much more attenuated-perhaps a small comfort, since the international community's ability to fix failed states is so limited."--Francis Fukuyama, Professor of International Political Economy, Johns Hopkins University, and author of The Origins of Political Order


"Stewart Patrick's brilliantly researched book is an overdue corrective to some of
the overwrought claims about the problems posed by failing, failed, and phantom
states. He shows that every state situation is different, demanding its own analysis
and its own policy solution. Meticulously and impressively argued."--Gareth Evans, former Foreign Minister of Australia


"The conviction that weak states are as great a potential threat to peace as strong states has dominated thinking about U.S. national security since the late 1990s. This superb book provides an important corrective to that flawed view." --Foreign Affairs


"This superb book provides an important corrective to that flawed view."--G. John Ikenberry, Foreign Affairs
