Through his exploration of the outcomes of negotiations from European alliance negotiations between 1815 and 1945, Poast offers a typology of alliance treaty negotiations and establishes what conditions are most likely to stymie the attempt to formalize recognition of common national interests.

Douglas M. Gibler, University of Alabama, author of The Territorial Peace:
"Paul Poast shows how the study of international alliances and international conflict more generally can benefit from understanding when states fail to agree on alliance. Poast's work is exemplary."
Mark J.C. Crescenzi, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, author of Of Friends and Foes:
"Arguing about Alliances makes an essential argument for the need to understand the context within which alliances are negotiated, and moves the literature forward."
