Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Inspired by the perception that the main reason for the spectacular failure of the various civil-military peacekeeping operations since the cold war is the unwillingness of the major participants and the international community to accept responsibility for the long-term outcomes of the interventions the undertake. Begins with a long interview with retired US General John R. Galvin, who had extensive experience in Europe and Central America. Then analyzes four case studies and explores a range of general topics such as a doctrine for complex emergencies and gaps in public security during operations. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
