The life of a ruler is ephemeral. A lucky few exit office through  retirement or old age, but most rulers have short tenures, often ended  by violent means. The overthrow of rulers by their rivals is a common  theme throughout world history, and this strategy remains a popular  choice in contemporary warfare. However, despite the frequency of regime  change, very little is discussed in international relations about  covert regime change and its effects on leader survival. Predicting  Leader Survival in Covert Operations from Congo to Cuba explores the  unique relationship between covert action and leader survival,  specifically discussing how leadership styles and personality traits  influence this relationship.
