Jaroslav Tir's Redrawing the Map to Promote Peace primarily focuses on the management of territorial disputes and how they are altered by change. Territorial shifts can sometimes lead to war, which is why Tir explores the contributing factors that lead to these disputes. He states two primary variables associated with the change/dispute relationship: the value of the area in question and how the territorial changes occur. Tir also discusses three types of territorial change: interstate territorial transfers, secessions, and unifications. Despite the likelihood of international dispute stemming from territorial changes, this book provides evidence supporting the claim that territorial change can be efficiently handled in a manner that could decrease the probability of dispute. Tir offers insight into some contributing factors of these disputes and how they impact people's hope for future peace.

Editorial Reviews

John A. Vasquez
"Tir's book makes an original and lasting contribution to study of international conflict. It provides an insightful empirically grounded study of the role of territorial changes in both conflict and peace. It is a book that every scholar, policy maker, and student interested in global conflict and peace will benefit from reading."
Patrick James
This book is a great step forward in the study of international conflict processes. A unified model linking territorial changes and future militarized conflict is developed and tested. The findings have implications for many areas of research, most notably, territorial conflict, ethnic conflict and temporal conflict diffusion. The book is a 'must read' for scholars with general interests in the international relations as well as specialists on conflict.
Paul F. Diehl
"Careless scholarly speculation and partisan rhetoric have long advocated changing territorial boundaries to solve conflicts. In this path- breaking work, Tir provides systematic, empirical evidence about such claims and discovers that reality is nowhere near as simple as those prescriptions suggest."
