"A fine and much recommended read for international studies collections."--Midwest Book Review
"A very insightful book... Litwak is to be congratulated for his impressive contribution."--Paiso Jamakar "Biz India Magazine "
"Nothing has bedeviled U.S. foreign policy more since the end of the Cold War than how to deal with a collection of despotic, hostile, and dangerous middle-tier states, such as Iran and North Korea. In this lucid and thoughtful book, Litwak compares the performances of the George W. Bush and Obama administrations in handling such foes."--G. John Ikenberry "Foreign Affairs "
"Logically organized, conceptually clear, analytically robust and practically useful... Outlier States is destined to become the reference of choice for U.S. officials seeking a clear exposition of the policy dilemmas and options for bringing outlier states in from the cold."--Stewart Patrick "American Interest "
"This is an authoritative, substantive, and well-written account that will be essential reading for students, scholars, and the attentive public who wish to understand the problems of outlier states and the policy changes they represent."--Robert J. Lieber "Perspectives on Politics "
