Title: The Power of Legitimacy: Assessing the Role of Norms in Crisis Bargaining

ISBN : 0691092486
Author : Christopher Gelpi
Publisher : Princeton University Press
Media : Hardcover
SKU MIX27-U31-6C-SHFLE-25836


Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatched from our warehouse in the UK

A major departure from mainstream security studies, this book mounts a challenge to realist theories of crisis bargaining. It tests the proposition that normative standards of behaviour influence state actions in security-related conflicts. Specifically, it examines the construction of bilateral norms as the settlements of security-related disputes and the effects these settlements have on subsequent interactions over the same issue. Drawing on institutionalist arguments about the informational impact of norms, Christopher Gelpi contends that norms act as signals that give meaning to other states' behaviour in at least two important ways. First, they provide a mutually acceptable focal point for limiting both demands and concessions. Second, security norms change the context in which coercive behaviour is interpreted. That is, norms can cause coercive behaviour to be interpreted as punishment rather than aggression. Gelpi tests this argument against its most prominent competitor - a realist model of crisis bargaining - in three stages. First, he uses a probit analysis to perform a quantitative test on the population of 122 reinitiated international crises between 1929 and 1979. Second, he conducts detailed case studies of the Cienfuegos Submarine Conflict and the Six Day War. Finally, he conducts a second statistical analysis examining the conditions under which security norms will succeed or fail. While hypotheses derived from realist coercion theory receive only mixed support, Gelpi finds strong evidence that states can and do construct normative standards that guide their behaviour in international crises.
