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.
