Influence without Boots on the Ground: Seaborne Crisis Response, by Dr. Larissa Forster of the University of Zurich, is the 39th monograph in the Naval War College's Newport Paper series. It is an empirical analysis of crisis characteristics, actors, U.S. involvement, and outcomes, exploring the political use of naval forces during foreign-policy crises short of full-scale warfare.
Dr. Forster uses a statistical model to analyze naval crisis data in ways useful to policy makers and strategists-outlining the unique characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages of naval forces and summarizing theoretical literature on naval diplomacy and coercion, as well as earlier quantitative research.
