“This is one of the most systematic rationalist accounts ever of the cooperative dilemmas states face and the legal structures they create to resolve them. Koremenos’s book is a triumph of argumentation and evidence that will spark debate across the disciplines of international law and international relations. Brava, Barbara!”
—Beth Simmons, Harvard University
