'This book is an impressive display of intellectual firepower. It will be required reading for anyone interested in crisis bargaining or deterrence.' R. Harrison Wagner, University of Texas, Austin 'Military Threats offers the most comprehensive and sophisticated analysis of crisis bargaining and escalation I know. Full of new insights and intuitions, this book defines the cutting edge of research in one of the most important areas of formal work on war, that of endogenizing the distribution of power.' Robert Powell, Robson Professor of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley
