Editorial Reviews

Review

Advance praise: 'The factors that influence the credibility of leaders is a critical topic for international politics. In this fascinating new book, Roseanne W. McManus shows what makes leaders credible, and why. Her multi-method approach significantly advances our understanding of credibility and conflict by demonstrating that statements of resolve are most effective at influencing adversaries when leaders have both the military and domestic political capacity to follow through on their public statements. I highly recommend this book to all interested in international politics.' Michael Horowitz, University of Pennsylvania

Advance praise: 'When do statements of resolve constitute credible signals of state intentions, and when are they merely cheap talk? This multi-method study demonstrates that a state's military and political capacity to follow through on coercive threats plays a major role in influencing the perceptions and behavior of international adversaries. Statements of Resolve is an important theoretical and empirical contribution with significant policy implications.' Jack S. Levy, Board of Governors' Professor of Political Science, Rutgers University, New Jersey

'Do international adversaries consider the president's ability to follow through with threats when responding to the US? Do American domestic circumstances enter into their calculations? McManus addresses these questions by measuring observable domestic political factors, such as the president's popularity and the hawkishness of veto players, to show - through able and careful quantitative analyses as well as enlightening case studies - that adversaries attend to domestic factors in evaluating the credibility of presidential statements. Her case studies of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Reagan's relations with the Soviet Union, the US during the Vietnam War show how other countries attend to varying constraints presidents face. Those interested in domestic politics and foreign policy and in international bargaining, in particular, will place Statements of Resolve very high on their lists of 'must-reads.' Glenn H. Palmer, Executive Director of the Peace Science Society and Professor of Political Science, Penn State University

Book Description

This book will be valuable to those with an interest in international security, conflict bargaining, and US foreign policy. It identifies important conditions that influence whether resolved statements issued by leaders in international disputes are effective at coercing adversaries. It also utilizes statistical analysis and case studies of US foreign policy.
