This book addresses the strategic and policy dimensions of these international state building and reconstruction efforts. The chapters take up issues relating to the economic, security-related, and institutional aspects. Table of Contents include: Lessons Unlearned: Why Most International Reconstruction Efforts in the Past Have Failed . Measuring Progress in International State Building and Reconstruction .
