Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • World War II
  • Law
  • Politics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Nuclear weapon, International relations, Law, Political economy and Politics. He has researched Nuclear weapon in several fields, including Computer security, International trade, Law and economics, International community and Terrorism. His research investigates the connection between International relations and topics such as Political history that intersect with problems in Possession, Public opinion, Nationalism and Marxist philosophy.

His work in the fields of Law, such as Nuclear ethics, overlaps with other areas such as Comparative case, Enriched uranium, Engineering ethics and Potential impact. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Ideology, Expansionism, Ancient history, World War II and Deterrence theory. His Politics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Arms control, National security, Computer security model and German.

His most cited work include:

  • The Limits of Safety: Organizations, Accidents, and Nuclear Weapons (544 citations)
  • Why Do States Build Nuclear Weapons?: Three Models in Search of a Bomb (365 citations)
  • The Origin and Prevention of Major Wars: Domestic Politics and War (362 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His scientific interests lie mostly in Nuclear weapon, Law, Political economy, Computer security and Law and economics. His Nuclear weapon course of study focuses on Disarmament and Public administration. His study in Just war theory, International relations, Politics, Nuclear terrorism and Taboo is carried out as part of his studies in Law.

His International relations research includes themes of Social science, Waltz and Political history. His Political economy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Diplomacy and World order. His study in Law and economics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both No first use, Deterrence theory and National security.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Nuclear weapon (35.00%)
  • Law (26.00%)
  • Political economy (12.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Law (26.00%)
  • Just war theory (6.00%)
  • Nuclear weapon (35.00%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Scott D. Sagan mainly focuses on Law, Just war theory, Nuclear weapon, Computer security and Terrorism. His work on Politics, Insider, Victory and State as part of general Law research is frequently linked to Roller coaster, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. In general Politics, his work in Survey experiment is often linked to Retributive justice linking many areas of study.

His Just war theory research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Maneuver warfare, Adversary, Moral responsibility, Just cause and Public opinion. His research on Nuclear weapon frequently links to adjacent areas such as Norm. As part of his studies on Computer security, Scott D. Sagan often connects relevant areas like Insider threat.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Revisiting Hiroshima in Iran: What Americans Really Think about Using Nuclear Weapons and Killing Noncombatants (43 citations)
  • Not Just a War Theory: American Public Opinion on Ethics in Combat (11 citations)
  • What do Americans really think about conflict with nuclear North Korea? The answer is both reassuring and disturbing (7 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • World War II
  • Law
  • Politics

Scott D. Sagan spends much of his time researching Law, Just war theory, Nuclear weapon, Roller coaster and Public opinion. His work on Survey experiment, Nuclear ethics and Proportionality as part of general Law study is frequently connected to Conventional weapon and Probability of success, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His study in the field of Jus ad bellum also crosses realms of War of aggression.

Scott D. Sagan does research in Nuclear weapon, focusing on Atomic Bombs specifically.
