Comprehensive, clear, and illuminating, Economic Statecraft is better than anything in the current literature on the use of economic sanctions and conditional offers of material help in foreign policymaking. Fabre develops a compelling and nuanced human rights–based account of when sanctions and aid conditionality can and must be employed.—Christian Barry, Australian National University

A sophisticated, timely, and insightful discussion of economic sanctions from a philosophical standpoint.—Mathias Risse, Harvard University

Her relentless examination of the use of economic power in international relations is unlikely to be surpassed any time soon.—Victor Tadros, University of Warwick
