This introduction to a forthcoming book (Spring 2011) briefly describes judges' hidden purse powers along with a theory for how and why judges will utilize these powers to keep the nation safe in times of foreign policy crisis. Ultimately, the book-length project investigates the empirical implications of the theory with both qualitative and quantitative data and finds substantial support for the idea that judges's use their financial powers differently in times of peace and in times of crisis
