About Book

Midwest Book Review
Contrary to popular expectations, the end of the cold war didn't bring an end to Soviet/US military force: it only raised questions about how and why such forces should be deployed in the world. Haass examines ideas of force, sovernity and intervention with an eye to considering both past patterns of use and future scenarios. Twelve selected case studies serve as the foundation for recommending guidelines for future U. S. military policies.

Book Description
This new edition of the Carnegie Endowment bestseller--selected by Choice as "an outstanding academic book of 1995"--now also discusses the interventions in Haiti and Bosnia, the 1998 crisis (and earlier skirmishes) with Iraq, and the decision to not intervene to halt apparent genocide in Central Africa.

In the core original study, which draws upon twelve cases including Somalia, Lebanon, Panama, Grenada, and the Gulf War Richard Haass suggests political and military guidelines for potential U.S. military interventions ranging from peacekeeping and humanitarian operations to preventive strikes and all-out warfare.

From the Publisher
"Haass has written a timely volume . . . sure to become one of the classics." Choice "This book is an indispensable primer for those wrestling with the proper role and structure for U.S. military forces in the post Cold War security environment." Parameters "A compact and discriminating survey of whether and how the United States should conduct military interventions." Foreign Affairs "Deftly drawing on case studies, Richard Haass has written a superb, well-documented study . . . one that bridges the gap' between theory and practice in a sophisticated, penetrating manner." Alexander L. George, Stanford University
