About This Item

Washington, DC: United States Institute of Peace Press, September 1996. Trade Paperback. Near Fine. Interior pristine. Binding square and tight. Cover clean and crisp with light shelf wear, corners sharp. Light dust stains to edges. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 642 pages.

A resurgence of ethno-nationalism, the collapse of empires, the outbreak of humanitarian crises, and growing pressures on weakened states are substantially altering world politics. While a new international system has not yet emerged to replace the Cold War system, conflict within and between states continues at a high level, posing a severe challenge to diplomats and citizens in the United States and other countries. Some 40 essays in this unique and comprehensive volume probe traditional and emerging sources of conflict and explore the full range of instruments, actors, techniques, and policies for managing and resolving conflict--ranging from combat intervention, collective security, and UN peacekeeping to preventive diplomacy, problem-solving workshops, and the strengthening of civil society. The book includes seven case studies (European Collective Security, Nagorno-Karabakh, Yugoslavia, the Middle East, Rhodesia, an Israeli-Palestine Women's workshop, OAS peacekeeping in Nicaragua) and numerous chapters that feature comparative and cross-cutting analysis. It will be equally useful to diplomats, military officers, international civil servants, and practitioners of humanitarian relief and conflict resolution in nongovernmental organizations.
