'...the single most authoritative text on peacekeeping in the post-cold war era...the cases are comprehensive and incisive...and the authors bring sharp analysis, clean prose, and much experience in recent peace-keeping operations. Anyone wanting help navigating the labyrinths of today's internal conflicts should read this book.' - Stephen John Steadman, School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University;'...crisply written, carefully researched, and insightfully analyzed case studies of the UN's varied attempts to bring peace to the civil wars of the 1990s...A worthy successor to their Evolution of UN Peacekeeping.' - Michael W. Doyle, Professor, Princeton Universzity and Senior Fellow of the International Peawce Academy;In a stunning follow-up to his well-received The Evolution of UN Peacekeeping, William Durch looks at the peacekeeping efforts of the United Nations as they took shape during the present decade. El Salvador, Angola, Mozambique, Rwanda, Somalia, Cambodia and the former Yugoslavia all harboured explosive political situations that tested, and in some cases continue to test, the limits of the United Nations ability to keep peace in a world where the political situation is constantly changing. Anyone interested in international politics and peacekeeping will want to read Durch's newest.
