Summary
  • This book provides a comprehensive study of asymmetric territorial conflict combining game theory, statistical empirical analysis and historiographic analysis. Using the Israeli-Palestine conflict as a case study, it tests the model on a database of almost four hundred territorial conflicts.
  • "This insightful book advances an original theoretical model addressing crucial questions which puzzled the IR literature on territorial conflicts for a very long time. For that purpose, Resnick uses in an impressive way a combination of formal, quantitative and qualitative methods. Based on his research the author provides some useful policy recommendations regarding the conditions under which resolve or concessions are more useful policies. This book must be read very closely by all scholars, students and policy makers who are interested in the crucial issue of territorial conflicts." - Benjamin Miller, Haifa University, Israel "[...] Using original concepts, such as 'patience,' this book demonstrates the utility of formal analysis for understanding conflict interaction and deriving policy recommendations [...] It constitutes a major contribution to conflict theory and provides important ideas for statecraft." - Yehezkel Dror, Hebrew University of Jerusalem and author of Israeli Statecraft: National Security Challenges and Responses

Summary expansion
This book provides a comprehensive study of asymmetric territorial conflict combining game theory, statistical empirical analysis and historiographic analysis. It proposes a model to explain the dynamics of territorial conflict between rivals with a wide disparity in capabilities between them. Using the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a case study and testing the model on a database of almost four hundred territorial conflicts, Resnick argues that changes in 'patience' - explained by parallel evolutionary processes occurring in the respectively strong and weak societies - underlie the changing behaviour witnessed in such rivalries. Located within the general context of the interplay between material constraints and ideas, the theoretical significance of this model goes beyond the context of territorial conflict and can be seen to provide an explanation for the ideational aspects of power transitions and change in world politics. This book constitutes a significant advance in the literature on territorial conflict, which has increasingly come to be recognized as a key field of enquiry in the discipline of conflict studies and international relations scholarship in general
