In this book, Mercer does an outstanding job of debunking the idea that reputation really matters in international politics. He argues that while states are overly sensitive about their own reputations, other states are not concerned about the past behavior of a state. His analysis is clear and well-argued. Mercer then goes on to provide case-studies which reinforce his theoretical claims. All in all, this is a great piece of international relations scholarship from one of the most brilliant young minds in the field.
