The Cuban Missile Crisis (paper) ain't goin' so good, lol. How on earth do you cram an overview of the situation *and* an analysis of the three models ("Rational Actor", "Organizational Process", and "Governmental Politics") presented in Allison's "Essence of Decision" into five --count 'em, FIVE-- pages?!?!?! It took Allison two editions and 400 pp., for cryin' out loud!! 'Nuff bitchin'. Back at it.
