July 12, 2011 – Elizabeth Stanley, a security studies scholar at the School of Foreign Service has received the Edgar G. Furniss Book Award from the Mershon Center for International Security Studies at The Ohio State University for a book she published in 2009.

Her book, Paths to Peace: Domestic Coalition Shifts, War Termination, and the Korean War (Stanford University Press, 2009), examined the domestic obstacles to peace and argues that longer are harder to end because of domestic obstacles that get institutionalized over time.

The award recognizes authors whose first books make an exceptional contribution to the study of national and international security by examining the use of force and diplomacy; the effect ideas, identities and decisional processes have on security; or institutions that manage violent conflict.
