Arguing About Alliances The Art Of Agreement In Military-Pact Negotiations

In a book that combines the origins of The Alliance by Stephen Walt and Glenn Snyders Alliance Politics, two classic works on alliances, Poast identifies two conditions that lead to a no-deal: large incompatibilities in the participants` internal war plans and attractive alternatives to a negotiated agreement for different parties to the negotiations. As a result, Arguing about Alliances focuses on a group of states largely ignored by scientists: states that have tried to form alliance agreements but failed. Poast proposes that, in explaining the results of negotiations, in particular how they can end without an agreement, we must pay particular attention to the functions of war planning and coordination of alliance agreements. By examining the results of the negotiations resulting from the negotiations of the European Alliance between 1815 and 1945, Poast offers a typology of alliance negotiations and identifies the conditions most likely to hinder the attempt to formalize the recognition of common national interests. ”This book is a remarkable and valuable contribution to the exploration of alliances.” ”There are many studies on how countries negotiate military alliances.

”The alliance debate is an essential argument for the need to understand the context in which alliances are negotiated and advances the literature.” Why do some attempts to make alliance agreements fail? From the inability of the European powers to form an alliance that would end Hitler in the 1930s to Ukraine`s current inability to join NATO, states often attempt, but do not make alliances. At Arguing about Alliances, Paul Poast sheds new light on the purpose of alliance agreements by recognizing that such contracts come from negotiations and that negotiations can lead to failure.
