International relations, conflict. Currently engaged in two research projects. The first extends the research in his first book on the causes of war termination and examines the role and incentives of leaders in international conflict initiation. The second explores when and why people become attached to specific pieces of territory which together constitute a "homeland" and the consequences of these attachments. His book War and Punishment was published by Princeton University Press (2000), a second book Fighting for Survival; Leaders and International Conflict with Giacomo Chiozza (Vanderbilt) was published by Cambridge University Press (2011). Other publications have appeared in the American Political Science Review, International Organization, the American Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Politics and the Journal of Conflict Resolution.
