We’ve all become too comfortable. The skills and knowledge that thrust us from the dark ages have become our Achilles heel. We’ve forgotten how to live, we’ve forgotten how to survive and if grocery stores and fast food restaurants vanished, I think the majority of humans would follow closely behind. So why write the world end? These stories challenge us, force us to think and some to act.

Economic sanctions continue to play an important role in the response to terrorism, nuclear proliferation, military conflicts, and other foreign policy crises. But poor design and implementation of sanctions policies often mean that they fall short of their desired effects. This landmark study, first published in 1985, delves into the rich experience of sanctions in the 20th century to harvest lessons on how to use sanctions more effectively.

This book describes the methodology, principal findings, and policy conclusions of the study. The companion CD-ROM contains the 174 case studies of economic sanctions episodes that are used in the statistical analysis in this book plus four summary cases (S-1, S-2, S-3, and S-4), one state/local level case (Case 97-2), and 13 new case studies on sanctions episodes that the authors have identified since 2000.

The Wreckage Reconsidered examines Yugoslav disintegration in order to suggest, through the Yugoslav example, that a reexamination of national security strategy and foreign policy concerns for the United States in a new century is not only a wise choice but an imperative one. P. H. Liotta examines this subject by means of the oxymoron, which he defines through its specific Balkan application: a force or issue so contrary in nature that it may remain problematic no matter what approach or resolution might be offered. The five oxymorons Liotta considers are: U.S. strategic perspectives as they have applied to the Balkan example; the rise of the "parastate" as a result of recent Balkan history; a strategy of chaos, as it may have applied in the last Balkan war and as it may "target" American strategic culture in the future; religion, a cultural and political force in the Balkans as it may have provided the occasion, though not the cause, for the outbreak of conflict; and, finally, the recognition that NATO enlargement may bring both unintended and unwelcome consequences.
