An Israeli scholar adduces illustrative material from six thoroughly researched case studies (between 1875 and 1946) to inform his theoretical discussion of how threats of force are intended and perceived, and how they are related to understood rules of the game in international relations. An original and serious attempt to make theory relevant to practical problems of foreign policy.
