Book Description

Please note that this volume is nonreturnable after April 15, 2008.

This landmark study was thoroughly updated in 1990 and was repeatedly cited in the congressional debate on the use of force against Iraq. It chronicles and evaluates 116 uses of economic sanctions since 1914. Each case study contains a concise chronology; the sanctioning country's objectives and the target country's response; the roles played by important third countries; relevant economic data and a calculation of costs; and an assessment of the outcome. From this exhaustive analysis, the authors distill a set of "commandments" to guide policymakers in the effective use of sanctions.

Case studies are available online.
