His book, Painful Choices: A Theory of Foreign Policy Change, was the winner of the International Studies Association ISSS Book Award and his book, Justice and the Genesis of War, won the 1994 Edgar S.

Berliner Illustrirte; Berlin the hub of Germany. Peter Boenisch.
Berlin: Ullstein, 1961. Special Issue. Wraps. [4], 141-243, [1] pages. Illustrations (some color). Text is mostly in English with some German text. Format is 10.5 inches by 13.5 inches. Large picture of President Kennedy on the front cover. Photographs of Willy Brandt and Konrad Adenauer on back cover. Cover shows wear, tears at spine, and some soiling. This is a special edition of the Berliner Illustrirte for the United States. It is our message of friendship, a renewed Berlin pledge in the cause of liberty. This is the first edition of the Berliner Illustrirte in many long years. The magazine first appeared on the streets of Berlin in 1890, produced by the House of Ullstein. In 1933 the Nazis seized the B. I. and may it an instrument of Hitler's brown tyranny over Europe. Today, with the red banner flying over the Brandenburg Gate, where once again peace and freedom in the world are at stake, we do not choose silence. For this reason the re-born House of Ullstein produces this special edition and we send it to people who have already proved they are our friends.
