Diplomatic Dispute: U.S. Conflict With Iran, Japan, and Mexico

Edited by Robert L. Paarlberg

Harvard Center for International Affairs, 1979, 173 pp.

Students of bilateral relations between states focus primarily on conflict (traditionalists) or interdependence (modernists). These case studies seek, with limited success, to refine a theory of conflict in conditions of "complex interdependence" in which weak states can prevail over strong. The years covered are 1920 to 1975.
