  • The Ethics of Peacebuildingby Tim Murithi

    Edinburgh University Press 2008; US$ 37.99

    This book explores the ethical dimension of peacebuilding. In the aftermath of the Cold War the hope for a more stable and just international order was rapidly dissolved by the internecine conflicts that plagued all continents. The Rwanda and Srebrenica genocides demonstrated the challenge of promoting peace in a world increasingly defined by intra-state... more...

  • Maritime Issues in the South China Seaby Nien-Tsu Alfred Hu; Ted L. McDorman

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    South China Sea (SCS) issues are complex and dynamic, ranging from historic claims to present day military occupation, from military security to regional stability, from rhetorical appeasements to national interests, from intraregional competition to extraregional involvement.  The submissions made in 2009 by several Southeast Asian states to the... more...

  • Intelligence and Strategic Cultureby Isabelle Duyvesteyn

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    Reliable information on potential security threats is not just the result of diligent intelligence work but also a product of context and culture. The volume explores the nexus between the intelligence process and strategic culture. How can and does the strategic outlook of the United States and the United Kingdom in particular, influence the intelligence... more...

  • The UN, Peace and Forceby Michael Pugh

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 57.95

    Restoring and maintaining peace within war-torn societies is a relatively new task for the United Nations. This book examines the options for the UN in the use of force to secure peace, and the extent to which peacekeeping can be effectively extended to coerce warring factions. A combination of internationally distinguished academics and new scholars... more...

  • Intelligence in the Cold War: What Difference did it Make?by Michael Herman; Gwilym Hughes

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    Intelligence was a major part of the Cold War, waged by both sides with an almost warlike intensity. Yet the question 'What difference did it all make?' remains unanswered. Did it help to contain the Cold War, or fuel it and keep it going? Did it make it hotter or colder? Did these large intelligence bureaucracies tell truth to power, or give their... more...

  • European Security Policy and Strategic Cultureby Peter Schmidt; Benjamin Zyla

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    With the Lisbon Treaty in place and the European Union increasingly involved in international crisis management and stabilization operations in places near and far, this volume revisits the trajectory of a European strategic culture. Specifically, it studies the usefulness of its application in a variety of circumstances, including the EU?s operations... more...

  • Power-Sharing and Political Stability in Deeply Divided Societiesby Allison McCulloch

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

    Nearly all the peace accords signed in the last two decades have included power-sharing in one form or another. The notion of both majority and minority segments co-operating for the purposes of political stability has informed both international policy prescriptions for post-conflict zones and home-grown power-sharing pacts across the globe. This... more...

  • Internationalized State-Building after Violent Conflictby Marc Weller; Stefan Wolff

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 37.95

    Previously published as a special issue of Ethnopolitics, this volume analyzes various dimensions of the internationalized state-building process in Bosnia and Herzegovina since 1995. In December 1995, the Dayton Agreements ended the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina and established a fragile peace between the former conflict parties. The settlement... more...

  • Kosovo: the Politics of Delusionby Kyril Drezov; Bulent Gokay; Michael Waller

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 53.95

    This collection examines the escalation of the Kosovo conflict to a full-scale war. It looks at its origins, background and the implications of the conflict: the myths, history and perceptions of the post-1989 crisis and the situation after the start of NATOs 1999 bombing campaign. more...

  • Mobilizing for Peace: The Antinuclear Movements in Western Europeby Thomas R. Rochon

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 33.00

    The crusade against nuclear weapons in Great Britain, West Germany, France, and the Netherlands in the early 1980s dwarfed all previous protest movements in Western Europe in the postwar period. What produced the demonstrations against NATO's decision in December 1979 to base 572 cruise and Pershing II missiles in five West European countries? What... more...
