Electing to fight : why emerging democracies go to war by Edward D Mansfield( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To promote democracy, the United States has provided economic assistance, political support, and technical advice to emerging democracies in Eastern and Central Europe, and it has attempted to remove undemocratic regimes through political pressure, economic sanctions, and military force. In Electing to Fight, Edward Mansfield and Jack Snyder challenge the widely accepted basis of these policies by arguing that states in the early phases of transitions to democracy are more likely than other states to become involved in war." "Drawing on both qualitative and quantitative analysis, Mansfield and Snyder show that emerging democracies with weak political institutions are especially likely to go to war. Leaders of these countries attempt to rally support by invoking external threats and resorting to belligerent, nationalist rhetoric. Mansfield and Snyder point to this pattern in cases ranging from revolutionary France to contemporary Russia. Because the risk of a state's being involved in violent conflict is high until democracy is fully consolidated, Mansfield and Snyder argue, the best way to promote democracy requires - such as the rule of law - and only then encouraging mass political participation and elections. Readers will find this argument particularly relevant to prevailing concerns about the U.S. attempts to build democracy in Iraq. Electing to Fight also calls into question the wisdom of urging early elections elsewhere in the Islamic world and in China."--Jacket
Power, trade, and war by Edward D Mansfield( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using quantitative analyses of structural and process-level factors, Mansfield examines the systemic influences on the outbreak of various types of interstate war. His results suggest that polarity is a less significant influence on war than the concentration of capabilities or the level of international trade. Power, Trade, and War will stand as an indispensable reference for both theoretical and empirical research concerning the international political economy and international conflict

Votes, vetoes, and the political economy of international trade agreements by Edward D Mansfield( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Preferential trading arrangements (PTAs) play an increasingly prominent role in the global political economy, two notable examples being the European Union and the North American Free Trade Agreement. These agreements foster economic integration among member states by enhancing their access to one another's markets. Yet despite the importance of PTAs to international trade and world politics, until now little attention has been focused on why governments choose to join them and how governments design them. This book offers valuable new insights into the political economy of PTA formation. Many economists have argued that the roots of these agreements lie in the promise they hold for improving the welfare of member states. Others have posited that trade agreements are a response to global political conditions. Edward Mansfield and Helen Milner argue that domestic politics provide a crucial impetus to the decision by governments to enter trade pacts. Drawing on this argument, they explain why democracies are more likely to enter PTAs than nondemocratic regimes, and why as the number of veto players - interest groups with the power to block policy change - increases in a prospective member state, the likelihood of the state entering a trade agreement is reduced. The book provides a novel view of the political foundations of trade agreements

The nexus of economics, security, and international relations in East Asia by Avery Goldstein( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While, over the last 30 years, the global economy's center of gravity has shifted to East Asia, the region has remained surprisingly free of interstate military conflict. Yet this era of peace and growth has been punctuated by periodic reminders of enduring security problems in the region-from China's military modernization, to unresolved territorial disputes, to persistent tensions on the Korean peninsula. This volume is one of the first to treat these issues of economics and security as interconnected rather than separate. Its authors-leading scholars from the U.S. and China-shed new light

9 editions published in 2004 in English and Chinese and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between the global economy and national security has been an enduring source of interest and debate. This volume contains a set of pioneering studies that paved the way for contemporary work on the political economy of national security as well as some more recent contributions to this literature. These papers address the influence of international economic relations on political conflict, the use and effectiveness of economic statecraft, and the effects of national security concerns on foreign economic relations. The articles contained in this volume will chart a path for research on these topics for years to come. 19 articles, dating from 1948 to 2001
