New PDF release: Diversionary War: Domestic Unrest and International Conflict

By Amy Oakes

The very life of diversionary wars is hotly contested within the press and between political scientists. but no publication has up to now tackled the main questions of no matter if leaders intentionally galvanize conflicts in a foreign country to distract the general public from difficulties at domestic, or even if such gambles supply a more suitable reaction to household discontent than appeasing competition teams with political or financial concessions.
Diversionary War addresses those questions through reinterpreting key historic examples of diversionary war—such as Argentina's 1982 Falklands Islands invasion and U.S. President James Buchanan's determination to ship troops to Mormon Utah in 1857. It breaks new floor via demonstrating that using diversionary strategies is, at most sensible, an ineffectual approach for handling civil unrest, and attracts vital conclusions for policymakers—identifying a number of new, and occasionally counterintuitive, avenues wherein embattled states should be driven towards adopting substitute political, social, or monetary concepts for handling household unrest.
