the crisis. Our goal with the thesis is to try to explain why a certain decision was

made and what the alternatives were. We have chosen five decisions that we find

interesting because they determined much of the outcome of the crisis. To try and

explain these different decisions we have chosen two theories from Allison &

Zelikow's book ?Essence of Decision? (1999). These two theories are ?The

Rational Actor Model? and the ?Governmental Politics Model?. We?re going to

use these theories and apply them to the five decisions we chosen to analyse. (Less)
