“This ambitious book completely lives up to its promises: the 12 chapters thoroughly prepare the grounds for a research program on ‘caveats in coalition warfare’ – one of the most relevant collective action issues in international relations. In an impressively systematic approach, the author addresses conceptual issues characterizing the object of investigation. Moreover, always grounded in a thorough review of the respective pertinent literature, the usefulness of Foreign Policy Analysis approaches, theoretical avenues for empirical research as much as challenges of method choices, data-collection and interpretation are systematically considered. In conclusion, any reader of the book will eagerly wait for this programme to be translated into (comparative) case studies in a follow-up volume or by other researchers drawing on this outstandingly insightful achievement.” (Ingo Peters, Associate professor, Center for Transnational Studies, Foreign and Security Policy, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany)
“Why do states apply caveats when making contributions to military coalitions? Drawing on insights from foreign policy analysis, Gunnar Fermann develops an empirical research program for the study of national restrictions in coalition operations. This book is essential reading for anyone interesting in the politics of military coalitions.” (Patrick A. Mello, Interim Franz Haniel Professor for Public Policy, University of Erfurt, Germany)
“Learning how to ask research questions is a fundamental element of anyone’s graduate education and subsequent research. In this book, Gunnar Fermann proposes a systematic framework for asking the right questions on the use of caveats in coalition forces. This work will be widely used in graduate programs, generating significant research projects.” (Laura Neack, Professor, Department of Political Science, and Editor-in-Chief, International Studies Perspectives, Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, USA)
“Caveats can be absolutely disastrous to the success of any operation, and they are increasingly common, yet not much studied. Professor Fermann has written an extremely useful and highly interesting book on how the research frontier on the politics of caveats be moved forward – conceptually, analytically, theoretically, and methodologically.” (Janne Haaland Matlary, Professor, Department of Political Science, University of Oslo, and Adjunct Professor, The Norwegian Defence Command and Staff College, Norway)
Deals with a topical and contentious issue: reluctant participation in coalition warfare
Analyses an issue where present research is limited: national reservations on the use of force, which reduces the fighting capacity of the coalition force
Provides a unique angle to the study of the politics of national reservations on the use of force in coalition operations (Foreign Policy Analysis)
Gunnar Fermann is Associate Professor at the Department for Sociology and Political Science, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway. Previously, he was Visiting Scholar at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, Harvard University, USA.
