'With surprising results that often come from actually testing a set of both theoretically derived and 'conventional wisdom' propositions, Professor Drury's rigorous analysis sets a new, higher standard in the study of economic coercion. Definitively laying to rest some questions, refining others, and posing new ones, Professor Drury's findings will serve as the platform for the next generation of research on why, when, and how the U.S. government employs economic sanctions to achieve its goals in foreign policy as well as foreign economic policy an important distinction it turns out. Given the renaissance of interest in alternatives to military force, this book is not only important but also timely.'

"Cooper Drury has managed to unearth new ways of thinking about sanctions, contributing to a wide-ranging and important debate. By focusing on the understudied area of presidential decision-making on sanctions, he increases understanding of why they continue to be so frequently used in the face of conventional wisdom that they 'never work.'"
- Kimberly Elliott, co-author of Economic Sanctions Reconsidered
