An experienced State Department official turned academic led a team of graduate students through the study of papers in the Lyndon Johnson Library bearing on six episodes involving Indonesia, Egypt, India, Chile and South Africa. They find some success in the use of economic pressure when objectives are clear and not too ambitious. The influence of publicity or the lack of it gets considerable attention. "Coercion" includes carrots as well as sticks, persuasion as well as pressure, in this useful book.
