The downside of such behavior-that balancing policies can spark inadvertent escalations to ma­ jor war-is underplayed or ignored. Neorealists, especially defensive neo­ realists, highlight the tragic implications of the security dilemma, and their structural logic strongly influences my approach? Still, the parameters and causal mechanisms that determine when and how power changes affect the severity of state policy have not been fully fleshed out. 4 In this chapter I seek to fill these gaps. The chapter's argument perhaps poses the strongest challenge for hege­ monic stability theory.

Given such inherent trade-offs, how can a state decide between the different policy options? While formulas can be derived showing the inter­ active effects among the six variables/parameters/4 the intuitive logic can be expressed straightforwardly. Each policy option has a particular EPS at­ tached to it. The initial differential of relative military power will be most critical in determining the EPS for the "initiate war" option. 16 In evaluating the EPS for either the accommodation or do-nothing op­ tions, two variables are key: the depth of decline and the inevitability of de­ cline in the absence of strong action.

As the crisis and security-dilemma literatures emphasize, hard-line policies like crisis initiation or general containment strategies raise the likelihood of major war through inadvertent spiraling. Below I integrate the risk of inadvertent spiraling into a broader dynamic realist logic stressing the risks of decline. The model begins with a decision-theoretical framework. The declining state acts on the basis of its estimates of various external conditions. The ris­ ing state's current preferences and diplomatic actions are assumed to be largely irrelevant to its decision (even if the rising state's future intentions may be important) .
