About this book
This groundbreaking book explains how the happiness levels of leaders, politicians and diplomats affect their assessments of the resolve of their state’s adversaries and allies. Its innovative methodology includes case studies of the origins of twelve wars with Anglo-American involvement from 1853 to 2003 and the psycholinguistic text mining of the British Hansard and the U.S. Congressional Record.
Peter S. Jenkins is Adjunct Professor at Osgoode Hall Law School of York University in Toronto, Canada, and recently taught in the Faculty of Law of Monash University in Prato, Italy. He is a member of the State Bar of California.
