Corey L. Lofdahl is a Consulting Engineer for IGEN Corporation in Carlisle, Massachusetts.
This intriguing study applies lateral pressure theory previously used to understand great-power wars to global North-South relations and the environmental consequences of free trade. Lofdahl's work is notable for its use of multiple methodologies to analyze complex systems. --Joshua S. Goldstein, Professor of International Relations, American University "Lofdahl asks a bold question and chooses an uncommon path to find an answer. He shows an admirable command of the literature and impressive mastery of a wide range of analytic methods. And all this is presented through the clearest writing I have seen in years." --Brian M. Pollins, The Mershon Center and Department of Political Science, Ohio State University
