In the latest in the RAND (contracted from "Research and Development") Corporation's series on nation building, lead author Dobbins (director, International Security & Defense Policy Ctr., RAND Corp.), a veteran bipartisan diplomat, assesses Europe's global nation-building role. The book covers Albania, Sierra Leone, Macedonia, Côte d'Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Bosnia, and the Solomon Islands (the last an Australian nation-building operation), providing history, evaluations, and recommendations regarding the ongoing work of over 20 post-World War II nation-building efforts-including NATO, national, and now EU-led missions. Contributors compare the various European efforts against those of the United States and the UN by means of such measurements as economic growth, return of refugees, and security. They sum up with "Lessons Learned" from each country. Dense but clear, with many fascinating graphs.
