Summary

Summary

This is the second of three related, empirically based studies examining the broad range of issues raised by the use of economic sanctions. This volume provides a detailed examination of the impact of U.S. economic sanctions on China, Cuba, and Iran as well as the impact on the United States itself.

Ashari, Forrer, Teegen, and Yang analyze whether or not these case studies in economic sanctions had been successful by measuring their historical impact and modeling their effectiveness. This book will be of particular interest to scholars, students, researchers, and the public policy community involved with international business and economics and international relations.

Choice Review

Does the world really need another book on economic sanctions? In this case the answer is yes. The authors (all affiliated with The George Washington Univ.) contribute usefully to a congested field by providing very thorough and thoughtful case studies of US economic sanctions against China, Cuba, and Iran. The problem with many books on economic sanctions is that they tend to draw strong conclusions from relatively superficial analysis. Building on the framework outlined in an earlier volume ( Economic Sanctions: Examining Their Philosophy and Efficacy, by Hossein Askari et al., CH, Sep'03), the authors look at precisely what sorts of economic sanctions were imposed and detail the different consequences on trade, investment, and technology transfer in the various affected sectors of these countries over time plus effects on third-party nations. The result is a multidimensional perspective that allows a fuller grasp of the direct and indirect costs and trade-offs inherent in economic statecraft in these examples of unilateral sanctions and the likelihood of detrimental unintended consequences. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended.
