Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'The authors provide a pathbreaking analysis of the EU's contribution to global security and the "politics of impact" as it plays out in Brussels, member state capitals, and host states and among other security providers. The authors' template for assessing the impact of crisis management operations should be considered by policy-makers and practitioners who seek to understand - and improve - the impact of civilian and military missions.

- Jamie Shea, NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General

'This book is a landmark for the debate on the security policy of the European Union: the authors' thorough review of existing literature, innovative approach to evaluating EU crisis management operations, and insightful and comprehensive analyses deserve highest attention in the political arena and in the academic world'

- Wolfgang Wessels, Jean Monnet Chair for European Affairs, University of Cologne, Germany

'This books ditches unsubstantiated sweeping generalizations about the EÚs performance in international crisis management operations. Instead Roy Ginsberg and Susan Penksa offer balanced judgement and thorough analysis based on sound empirical analysis. The book demonstrates that many global security issues cannot be properly understood without taking EU contributions into account.'

- Knud Erik Jørgensen, Professor of International Relations, University of Aarhus, Denmark

'The EU in Global Security is a clear, thorough, and well-researched study of the impact of Common Security and Defence Policy missions. It shows both how the Union makes a genuine difference in global security governance, as well as its limitations and (sometimes) pathologies. A serious work that all serious students of EU foreign policy will find essential reading'.

- John Peterson, Professor of International Politics, University of Edinburgh, UK
