For three decades the analysis of strategic coercion has been dominated by two landmark books: Tom Schelling's Arms and Influence and Alex George's Strategic Diplomacy, both of which addressed the requirements of American foreign policy during the cold war. This book argues for a reappraisal of the role of strategic coercion - defined as the deliberate and purposive use of overt threats to influence another's strategic choices. It emphasizes the importance of drawing on the experiences of countries other than the United States, and of considering the new circumstances of the post cold war world. An international team of scholars, led by Lawrence Freedman, Professor of War Studies at King's College, London, provides critical commentaries on the work of Schelling and George and a series of fascinating case studies. These cover most regions of the world, a variety of different actors - including terrorist groups - and different forms of coercion - including the use of economic sanctions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...Lawrence Freedman has assembled an impressive collection of views on concepts and cases of strategic coercion...the case studies in Freedman's excellent collection should be required reading in the corridors of power of the United Nations, Nato and those nations who claim a special responsibility for peace in the wider world. - Tim Garden. Times Higher Education Supplement. 14/8/1998
significant work ... This is a most useful and stimulating work and should be read both by analysts and practitioners of strategic coercion. It provides real insights into the potential and difficulties of the art, and from the events of this year needs a wider audience. * Dr Eric Grove, RUSI Journal December 1999 *
