Alexander L. George was one of the most productive and respected political scientists
of the late twentieth century. He and his wife, Juliette George, wrote one of the first
psychobiographies, and Professor George went on to write seminal articles and books
focusing on political psychology, the operational code, foreign policy decisionmaking,
case study methodology, deterrence, coercive diplomacy, policy legitimacy, and bridging
the gap between the academic and policymaking communities. This book is the first
and only one to contain examples of the works across these fields written by Alexander
George and several of his collaborators.
