International Economic Sanctions: The Cases of Cuba, Israel, and Rhodesia
International Economic Sanctions: The Cases of Cuba, Israel, and Rhodesia
By Donald L. Losman
University of New Mexico Press, 1979, 156 pp.

The author's purpose is to examine, in three prominent cases, what the actual results of the imposition of economic sanctions have been. His investigation is not as far-reaching as it might be-admittedly the problems are complex and some costs impossible to measure-but it is sufficient to support his main conclusions that, one, the economic damage to the target country has been considerable in each case, and, two, the intended political consequences are further away than ever.
