Opis książki

In Why Leaders Lie, John Mearsheimer provides the first systematic analysis of lying at the highest levels. He identifies the different forms of lying, the reasons why lies are used as a tool of statecraft, the potential costs and benefits. Drawing both on historical and present-day examples, he argues that leaders often lie for good strategic reasons as Roosevelt and Churchill did in World War Two which makes blanket condemnation unrealistic and unwise. And there is always an important difference between lying to another state and lying to one's own people, as in the invasion of Iraq. Why Leaders Lie explains the different consequences that result from lying to another state, and from lying to ones own people as in the invasion of Iraq. John Mearsheimer discovers that interstate lying has always been unusual; due to the distrust among great powers, outright deceit is difficult to pull off, and sometimes backfires. Leaders more frequently mislead their own publics and democratic leaders like our own do it more often than dictators. This book explains why. There has never been a full discussion of international lying. Why Leaders Lie fills the gap with a deeply informed and powerfully argued account, which provides a template for understanding the real world of high-level decision making. Mearsheimer is admirably rigorous in his definition of lying ... The professor has a mastery of detail and a telling eye for a quote. -- Peter Oborne * Spectator * Fascinating ... Why Leaders Lie offers a treatise on the biggest of big fat lies * Washington Post * Myth-makers beware! Writing with verve and economy, John Mearsheimer breaks new ground in exposing this hot-button issue to systematic scrutiny. -- Jack Snyder, Professor of International Relations, Columbia University Mearsheimer is admirably rigorous in his definition of lying ...
