Reputation for Resolve: How Leaders Signal Determination in International Politics
341 Eggers Hall
"Danielle Lupton's Reputation for Resolve: How
Leaders Signal Determination in International Politics (Cornell University
Press, 2020) examines how leaders establish reputations in international politics
and how these reputations influence international conflict. Using innovative
survey experiments and in-depth archival research into American-Soviet
relations, Lupton shows that leaders acquire personal reputations based on
their foreign policy statements and behavior. And statements create
expectations of how a leader will react to foreign policy crises in the future.
Reputation for Resolve challenges the often-publicized view that reputations do
not matter in international politics. The book reframes our understanding of
the influence of leaders and their rhetoric on crisis bargaining and the role
reputations play in international politics.
Danielle Lupton is Assistant Professor of Political Science at Colgate University. Her research investigates the impact of individual leaders on international security and foreign policy. In addition to her forthcoming book, her research is published in Political Analysis, International Interactions, Political Research Quarterly, and the Journal of Global Security Studies."
