"In Humanitarian Intervention: Ideas in Action, Tom Weissagain demonstrates his unique talent for bringing conceptualclarity and rigorous analysis to pressing and messy real-worlddilemmas. Protecting endangered people abroad raises thorny issues- politically, practically, and ethically. In this engaging book,Weiss offers a conceptual guide to understanding these dilemmas,and his application of these concepts to contemporary humanitarianemergencies will be useful to both scholars and practitionersalike. This is an essential book for anyone interested inhumanitarian action."
Martha Finnemore, George Washington University
