The focus of this lucidly written and cogently argued edited volume is on the use of incentives in international conflict prevention and resolution. Through case studies, the contributors convincingly demonstrate how political and economic incentives have resulted in the successful resolution of some of the most intractable international conflict of recent decades. . . . This well-informed and sober book is highly recommended for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students, scholars, and practitioners of international relations and diplomacy.

The contributions to the volume nicely demonstrate that the effectiveness of incentives is likely to vary, depending on the particular circumstances in which they are applied. . . . Policy makers will benefit from some of the insights generated by the array of case studies.

This is the seminal book on incentives in foreign policy that has been long overdue. The Price of Peace is an important book and well conceived. It is very strong in developing discussions about incentives on which policy recommendations and analysis can be based. The case studies have been thoughtfully chosen to give a realistic assessment of the impact of incentives, and the concluding chapter is a tour de force that summarizes well the current state of knowledge on incentives and rightly suggests that they can become more powerful instruments of foreign policy in the global community.

The many excellent case studies in this volume demonstrate that positive inducements of an economic, political, or security character can often be effective in deterring nuclear proliferation, preventing armed conflict, and defending civil and human rights. The study fills an important gap in the scholarly literature. It offers significant help and encouragement to policymakers who must increasingly turn to positive incentive strategies in the post-Cold War era instead of relying on economic coercion and military force, options which are often no longer available or effective.
