: William A. Boettcher III (Ph.D., Ohio State University) is an Associate Professor of Political Science at North Carolina State University. His research focuses on the management of risk in foreign policy decision making and the framing of casualty data. He has published articles in the Journal of Conflict Resolution and Political Psychology and the Journal of Applied Social Psychology and is the author of a recent book, Presidential Risk Behavior in Foreign Policy: Prudence or Peril. This work looks at why Cold War Presidents were willing to risk entrapment and even war-escalation to contain Communist expansion and to preserve U.S. credibility.
