Haney (Miami Univ., OH) provides a thoughtful analysis of US presidential decision making during foreign policy crises. The literature on crisis management is well developed. At issue in this new work is the way presidents organize and manage decision groups, and the way in which presidential advisers provide information, analysis, and expert or political advice. Ultimately, Haney's research illustrates the relationships between presidential managerial styles and the quality of the decision making process. Haney employs a case survey methodology that uses a series of standardized questions to investigate a number of cases. The author chooses nine crisis management case studies taken from the Truman, Eisenhower, Johnson, Nixon, and Bush administrations. The research itself is placed within the context of previous models of presidential management styles and foreign policy processes. This is one of the book's strong points. The study of presidential decision making in foreign policy has been somewhat at a standstill since the early to mid-1970s. This book advances research on some of the older established models through the use of a more systematic methodology. It is appropriate for graduate students of foreign policy and research methods, and perhaps also for very advanced undergraduates. W. W. Newmann Virginia Commonwealth University
