  • Beyond Warby Douglas P. Fry

    Oxford University Press, USA 2007; US$ 16.99

    The classic opening scene of 2001, A Space Odyssey shows an ape-man wreaking havoc with humanity's first invention--a bone used as a weapon to kill a rival. It's an image that fits well with popular notions of our species as inherently violent, with the idea that humans are--and always have been--warlike by nature. But as Douglas P. Fry convincingly... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2003; US$ 160.00

    Britain was arguably the single greatest catalyst and beneficiary of UN peacekeeping operations during the post-war period.

  • 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...

  • Civil-Military Cooperation in Post-Conflict Operationsby Christopher Ankersen

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 54.95

    Civil-Military Cooperation (CIMIC) is the relationship between militaries and humanitarians. Largely conducted in post-conflict environments, CIMIC has become a key characteristic of military operations in the twenty-first century.

    Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 105.00

    Addressing decision-making over interstate disputes and the democratic peace thesis, Choi and James build an interactive foreign policy decision-making model with a special emphasis on civil-military relations, conscription, diplomatic channels and media openness.
