Influence without Boots on the Ground: Seaborne Crisis Response
by Larissa Forster Influence without Boots on the Ground: Seaborne Crisis
Response,/ by Larissa Forster, is the 39th monograph in our Newport
Paper series. It is an empirical analysis of crisis characteristics,
actors, U.S. involvement, and outcomes, exploring the political use of
naval forces during foreign-policy crises short of full-scale warfare.
Dr. Forster, of the University of Zurich, uses a statistical model to
analyze naval crisis data in ways useful to policy makers and
strategists—outlining the unique characteristics, advantages, and
disadvantages of naval forces and summarizing theoretical literature
on naval diplomacy and coercion, as well as earlier quantitative
research.
