Coalitions of Convenience

United States Military Interventions after the Cold War

Sarah E. Kreps

  • Addresses one of the most hotly debated issues of foreign policy in the last decade: How the United States uses military force abroad
  • Kreps's argument sheds light on questions about how the world works when power is concentrated in the hands of one state, how international institutions function, and what the rise of China and resurgence of Russia may mean for international cooperation and conflict
  • The author is a political scientist, but her thinking is also informed by her own recent military experience
