Editorial Reviews

Review

"Few scholars have contributed as much to our understanding of international relations as has Glenn Snyder. His latest book on the formation and management of alliances, the product of nearly two decades of research, is arguably his most sophisticated and important work. Unparalleled in conceptual clarity and theoretical richness, Alliance Politics is a monumental achievement that sets a new standard by which future alliance studies will be judged. . . . A rich and complex but crisply written book that should be required reading for any serious student or practitioner of international relations. Alliance Politics is a virtuoso performance by a mature scholar of unsurpassed intellectual firepower; it ranks among the finest books the field has ever produced and was well worth the wait."―Political Science Quarterly

"A much needed-theoretical analysis of the formation and management of alliances. . . . Snyder must be credited for an exhaustive survey of the theoretical and historical literature, and the creativity with which he applies formulaic evaluations to historical cases."―The Review of Politics

"For those who are truly interested in the relationship between politics and the military, reading Alliance Politics is worth the effort."―LTC Laurence W. Mazzeno, Military Review. November-December, 1999.

"Alliance Politics is an immediate classic. . . laying out the general structural logic and tensions of alliance formation and management. The book is also a classic in style. Snyder's writing is a model of clarity."―Edward Rhodes, Rutgers University

"With a multipolar world emerging, Glenn Snyder's book is right on the mark: a brilliant application of neorealist and other theories to questions of alliance formation and management."―Kenneth Waltz, University of California, Berkeley --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

A fairly interesting historical account of the period but that's about it. His theoretical insights and empirical observations are based on 100% common sense.

I ordered a new book because I didn't not want to read over someone else's scribbling. In addition I needed the book immediately because I had to do a book report, therfore I expedited the shipping. It cost more but in dire situations is needed. When the book arrived,in a timely manner which was great, it was in great condition. To conclude, I have no complaints the seller gives you what you ask for.
