dc.description.abstractIn Essence of Decision: Explaining the Cuban Missile Crisis (1971), Graham T. Allison posits three 'conceptual lenses' by which American and Soviet foreign policy decisions can be understood - the Rational Actor Model (M1), the Organizational Processes Model (M2) and the Governmental Politics Model (M3). This dissertation focuses on the Soviet decision to place nuclear missiles on Cuba, and does so by examining the ability of the models in accounting for Soviet behaviour, in light of new evidence and recent information provided by a variety of primary and secondary sources.en_US
