Overview

This new edition of the Carnegie Endowment bestseller—selected by Choice as "an outstanding academic book of 1995"—now also discusses the interventions in Haiti and Bosnia, the 1998 crisis (and earlier skirmishes) with Iraq, and the decision to not intervene to halt apparent genocide in Central Africa.

In the core original study, which draws upon twelve cases—including Somalia, Lebanon, Panama, Grenada, and the Gulf War—Richard Haass suggests political and military guidelines for potential U.S. military interventions ranging from peacekeeping and humanitarian operations to preventive strikes and all-out warfare.
