520    This book shows how to predict wars. More specifically, it
       tells us how to anticipate in a timely fashion the scope 
       and extent of interstate conflict. By focusing on how all 
       governments - democratic or not - seek to secure public 
       support before undertaking risky moves such as starting a 
       war, Getting to War provides a methodology for identifying
       a regime's intention to launch a conflict well in advance 
       of the actual initiation 
520 8  Getting to War will be of value to political scientists 
       interested in international disputes and national security
       studies as well as social scientists interested in media 
       studies and political communication. The statistical 
       analysis is rigorous, but presented in an accessible 
       fashion, making this book appropriate for advanced 
       undergraduates as well as the traditional academic 
       audience. General readers with an interest in military or 
       diplomatic history - particularly U.S. history - will find
       that Getting to War provides an entirely new perspective 
       on how to understand wars and international crises
