Kelly Greenhill and Peter Krause are the editors of Coercion: The Power to Hurt in International Politics (Oxford University Press, 2018). From the rising significance of non-state actors to the increasing influence of regional powers, the nature and conduct of international politics has changed dramatically since the Cold War era. This book examines intra-state, inter-state, and transnational coercion and deterrence as well as both military and non-military instruments of persuasion, thus expanding our understanding of coercion for conflict in the 21st century.

Greenhill and Krause will discuss the book's key findings as well as their implications for ongoing security challenges facing the US today, including insurgencies, cyber attacks, refugee and migration flows, nuclear proliferation, and more.
