Point of Attack

John Yoo

Oxford University Press

Failed states may present the most difficult challenge to global stability in the coming century. U.S. and international policy mistakenly compounds the problem of ungoverned territory by opposing the decentralization of large nations into more compact, ethnically homogeneous units. Crisis bargaining theory shows how the great powers can help cure failed states by guaranteeing power-sharing agreements in war-torn countries.

Keywords:   Failed states, international stability, decentralization, crisis bargaining
