Abstract:

Chapter 1 of this report reviews the contract tasking and the project accomplishments. Chapter 2 describes procedures used to select 289 crises since 1946 for greater analysis. Characteristics of the 289 are presented and a sample of 41 is selected for more intensive analysis in Chapter 3, where over 70 different kinds of crisis management problems are examined for the 41 crises. Chapter 4 examines the relationships among the different types of problems based on the results of canonical correctional analysis. Chapter 5 examines the relationships between the environment in which the crisis occurred, the characteristics of the crisis, and the crisis management problems that were observed. Heavy use of regression analysis is made in detailing these relationships. Finally, Chapter 6 discusses the potential uses of the findings for crisis management planning.
