about

Butler sheds light on how American political leaders sell the decision to intervene with military force to the public and how a just war frame is employed in US foreign policy. He provides three post-Cold War examples of foreign policy crises: the Persian Gulf War (1990-91), Kosovo (1999), and Afghanistan (2001).

MICHAEL J. BUTLER Assistant Professor of Political Science at Clark University, USA. He is the author of International Conflict Management (2009).
