Threat perception has been central to theories of war, deterrence and compellence, alliances, and conflict resolution. Threat was initially equated to military power, but scholars then looked seriously at intention as a source of threat independent of military capabilities. This chapter examines five nonpsychological explanations of threat perception that scholars in international relations have identified and then assesses the contribution of political psychologists who bring fundamentally different theoretical perspectives to the analysis of threat perception.
Jervis describes the process of perception for example, how decision makers learn from history and then explores common forms of misperception such as overestimating one's influence. He then tests his ideas through a number of important events in international relations from nineteenth- and twentieth-century European history. Perception and Misperception in International Politics is essential for understanding international relations today. A valuable contribution to the theoretical literature on international relations. The best statement of the psychological position in the literature on international politics. Highly readable, informative, and thought-provoking.

Perception and Misperception in International Politics Precis. Jervis analyzes the methods by which decision-makers process information and form, maintain, and change their beliefs about international relations and other actors. Additionally, Jervis examines several common misperceptions of decision-makers. The central argument of deterrence theory is that great dangers arise if an aggressor believes that the status quo powers are weak in capability or resolve, so therefore states must often go to extremes because moderation or conciliation will be seen as weakness.

Беккер застонал и начал выбираться из расписанного краской из баллончиков зала. Он оказался в узком, увешанном зеркалами туннеле, который вел на открытую террасу, уставленную столами и стульями. На террасе тоже было полно панков, но Беккеру она показалась чем-то вроде Шангри-Ла: ночное летнее небо над головой, тихие волны долетающей из зала музыки. Не обращая внимания на устремленные на него любопытные взгляды десятков пар глаз, Беккер шагнул в толпу. Он ослабил узел галстука и рухнул на стул у ближайшего свободного столика.
