And as part of a recent $, grant from the National Science Foundation, she will study high-level decision makers - from governments, militaries, nongovernmental organizations, and corporations - to explore whether their knowledge and leadership experience protects them from decision-making biases.

The esteemed contributors to this book offer explanations and illustrative case studies of these critical choice points in foreign and national security policy. They offer alternative theoretical frameworks for determining if and when policy will change in response to evidence of failing efforts.
