How are smaller, weaker countries able to successfully resist the influence of larger, more powerful nations? The answer has a lot to do with understanding and exercising "leverage," according to Robert Hathaway, author of the new book, "The Leverage Paradox: Pakistan and the United States."

How to Forecast Instability

"All stable countries are alike, but all unstable countries become unstable in their own ways...
