Presents an overview of the logic, evolution, application and
outcomes of the 5 major approaches of international conflict
management: traditional peacekeeping; peace enforcement and support
operations; negotiation and bargaining; mediation; and,
adjudication. This book provides an understanding of the strengths
and weaknesses of these techniques.
'Its textbook style makes it accessible and it succeeds in its aim of providing a conceptual inventory of the four key techniques upon which it concentrates: peacekeeping, mediation, peace enforcement, and adjudication... The book is very useful in illustrating the constraints of orthodox conflict management. As a state-of-the-art summary, it is to be recommended to students.' - International Peacekeeping '...this book would serve as an excellent companion to a survey course on conflict management at the upper undergraduate or graduate level. .. a superb introductory guide to techniques, trends, and applications of external conflict management in contemporary politics.' - International Studies Review
