- We can order this
The essays collected in this volume examine the impact of international conflict on domestic politics through studies of events of the 1980s. The findings expand upon previous crisis theories and put them into a cross-national context. Each article presents a variant of the type of impact that international crisis may have on domestic politics. Public opinion and the conditions under which it may solidify or unravel during an international crisis is also explored. Relationships between international crisis and public opinion, political leadership, and public policy are closely analyzed by the various essayists. Also studied are the dynamics of change that result from international crisis.
The following countries and events are examined in International Crisis and Domestic Politics: The United States and intervention overseas during the Reagan years; Britain and the Falklands War; the Soviet Union and Afghanistan; Israel and the Middle East; external economic sanctions and South Africa; Northern Ireland's reaction to the British presence; and New Zealand and the ANZUS conflict. This volume will be of relevance to courses in international relations, comparative politics, and political psychology.
