    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 50.95

  • A Post-Liberal Peaceby Oliver Richmond

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 45.95

  • The Transformation of Peaceby Oliver P. Richmond

    Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 42.00

    This book examines the transformation of the discourse and praxis of peace, from its early beginnings in the literature on war and power, to the development of intellectual and theoretical discourses of peace, contrasting this with the development of practical approaches to peace, and examining the intellectual and policy evolution regarding peace. more...

  • Palgrave Advances in Peacebuildingby Oliver P. Richmond

    Palgrave Macmillan 2010; US$ 32.00

    The quality of the peace arrived at via liberal peacebuilding approaches has been poor. The related statebuilding praxis has generally been unable to respond to its critics. What is at stake is a recognition of peacebuilding's everyday political, social, economic, and cultural dynamics. This indicates the emergence of a post-liberal form of peace. more...

  • Challenges to Peacebuildingby Newman Edward; Richmond Oliver

    United Nations University Press 2006; US$ 37.00

    Many ceasefires and peace agreements in civil conflict are initially unsuccessful. Some give way to renewed, and often escalating, violence. In other cases, peace processes have become interminably protracted: lengthy and circular negotiations in which concessions are rare. Given the huge material and human costs of a failed peace process, the international... more...

  • The United States and Human Securityby Edward Newman; Oliver P. Richmond

    Palgrave Macmillan 2001; US$ 155.00

    The United Nations and Human Security highlights and analyzes the changing peace and security challenges faced by the United Nations in an evolving international environment that is no longer solely characterized by states and inter-state security. The authors, who comprise both scholars and UN practitioners, cover a wide range of pressing current... more...

  • Liberal Peace Transitionsby Oliver P. Richmond; Jason Franks

    Edinburgh University Press 2009; US$ 114.00

    This book examines the nature of 'liberal peace': the common aim of the international community's approach to post-conflict statebuilding. Adopting a particularly critical stance on this one-size-fits-all paradigm, it explores the process by breaking down liberal peace theory into its constituent parts: democratisation, free market reform... more...

  • Hybrid Forms of Peaceby Oliver P. Richmond; Audra Mitchell

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 105.00

    This book examines the role of everyday action in accepting, resisting and reshaping interventions, and the unique forms of peace that emerge from the interactions between local and international actors. Building on critiques of liberal peace-building, it redefines critical peace and conflict studies, based on new research from 16 countries. more...
