This excellent volume on the Cuban Missile Crisis is an analysis of the choices and decisions taken by key actors. Although the authors present three models of decision-making, each concept is clearly explained with numerous examples of the way in which the model has worked in other situations.This is not a boring tome from the field of political science. It is a fascinating look into how our government acts to solve international problems.As the years pass, more and more information about the Cuban Missile Crisis comes to light.The authors present a careful analysis of what happened during the Crisis. This is not a re-working of the original edition, but a complete re-write.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
