"Mark Duffield has written a brilliant book which draws togetherthe strings of the end of the Cold War, the securitization ofpolitics, the development of a neo-liberal discourse ofhumanitarian intervention, and the fusion of the national and theinternational. Particularly compelling is his contrarian view ofthe consequences of the liberation of the UN from the shackles ofthe Cold War."
