Overview

"Sanctions don't work" is an often-heard refrain. The reality, though, is more complex. Sanctions - mostly economic but also political and military penalties aimed at states or other entities to alter political and/or military behavior - almost always have consequences, sometimes desirable, at other times unwanted and unexpected. What cannot be disputed is that economic sanctions are increasingly at the center of American foreign policy: to stem the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, promote human rights, discourage aggression, protect the environment, and thwart drug trafficking. Drawing on eight case studies - China, Cuba, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, and the former Yugoslavia - this edited volume presents lessons to be learned from recent American use of economic sanctions. It also provides specific guidelines designed to shape future decisions by Congress and the executive branch.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Draws on eight country studies to present lessons to be learned from the American use of economic sanctions in the post-Cold War era, and provides guidelines designed to shape future decisions by Congress and the executive branch. Each chapter analyzes the voice of domestic constituencies in shaping US sanctions policy, the legal authority invoked to implement sanctions, the impact of sanctions on American allies, and characteristics of target states that make them more or less vulnerable to sanctions.
