Appeasement was unfairly discredited by Neville Chamberlain's disastrous attempt to satisfy Hitler's territorial ambition, suggests the author of this work. He attempts to restore appeasement to its proper place as a legitimate and useful diplomatic strategy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Named a Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2002." --


"Rock's case studies and theoretical propositions significantly advance our understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of inducement strategies in the conduct of international affairs." -- American Political Science Review


"Argues that there is little evidence to support the belief that dissatisfied states and their leaders cannot be appeased or that appeasement undermines a state's credibility in later attempts at deterrence." -- Book News


"In this revisionist, thought-provoking, rich, and well-written work, Rock offers an alternative theory about the positive uses of appeasement and inducements in history." -- Choice


"Offers unsurprising but sensible recommendations, including a policy approach of mixing deterrence with engagement." -- Foreign Affairs


"Will be a controversial yet solid and definitive work on the complex and misunderstood idea of 'appeasement' for years to come." -- John D. Stempel


"A thoughtful, careful analysis of a diplomatic strategy that has long been dismissed by scholars and policy makers." -- Journal of Politics


"This well-written book will be studied by political science students and policymakers alike. Highly recommended." -- Library Journal


"This ambitious study offers far and away the best theoretical work on appeasement to date." -- Randall L. Schweller
