Looking for Balance
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the sources of changing balance of power. It addresses the issue of how increased power affects a state's disposition to trust others and how its own actions are likely to affect others' disposition to trust it. The chapter discusses the communication which states can undertake to reassure each other that they are interested in protecting their security rather than expanding their power and the policy ensemble available to a declining power. It also considers the so-called power transition theory and provides historical comparison of several instances of changes in balance of power.

Keywords:   balance of power, trust, policy ensemble, declining power, power transition theory
