Abstract

Once again, William J. Durch and the Stimson Center have brought together a talented and knowledgeable team of writers to examine the nature of multilateral peace operations in the post-Cold War era. The product of this collaborative effort is this wide-ranging volume which picks up the peacekeeping issue where Durch and his associates left off in his earlier edited book, The Evolution of UNPeacekeeping: Case Studies and Comparative Analysis (1993). Unfortunately, UN Peacekeeping, American Policy and the Uncivil Wars of the 1990s appears to be an unfinished work. Much like its predecessor, the book is a case-heavy work which closely examines UN and/or multilateral peace operations launched in the first half of the 1990s. Unlike The Evolution of UN Peacekeeping, however, this volume has an interest in the role and policies of one particular country vis-à-vis peacekeeping, the United States. In the first chapter, Durch writes that the book's objective is to focus on 'America's role in UN operations and the lessons to be learned from the more "muscular" efforts undertaken since 1991 in the heady aftermath of the Second Gulf War' (p.2). To that end, the book is organized into ten chapters. The first is an introduction
