Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.Since the 1990s, the international security environment has shifted radically. Leading states no longer play as great a role in regional conflicts, and thus a new opportunity for regional conflict management has opened. This collection of original essays is one of the first to examine the implications and efficacy of regional conflict management in the new world order. The editors' general overview provides a framework for analyzing regional conflict management efforts and the kinds of threats faced by actors in different regions of the world. Case studies from every major world region then place these factors into specific regional contexts and address a variety of challenges. Drawing together a diverse group of scholars from around the world, Regional Conflict Management provides key lessons for understanding conflict management over the globe.

Regional Conflict Management is an analytically sound and well-integrated synthesis of the new issues that have emerged in regional security. It provides an excellent combination of both theoretical background and empirical case studies covering Europe and the ex-Soviet republics, East and Southeast Asia, South Asia, Africa and Latin America. In each of the geographical case studies, the chapters explore incisively the global ramifications of regional conflicts, and alternative strategies of containment. -- Raju G. C. Thomas, Marquette University Until the terrorist attacks on the United States in September 2001 the most serious security problem facing the world was the outbreak of numerous regional conflicts in the decade following the end of the Cold War. Regional Conflict Management provides a 'state of the art' assessment of this important subfield of security studies. The editors provide a sophisticated, but very readable, overview of key aspects of the literature on regional conflict managment, supplemented by excellent empirical assessments of conflict management in six regions of the workd-Africa, East Asia, Latin America, South Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. The end result is an important book that contributes to the theoretical and empirical advancement of the field of regional security studies. -- Roger E. Kanet, University of Miami Diehl and Lepgold have produced what will become one of the defining works in the area of conflict analysis and resolution. Their innovative approach to using case exemplars to illuminate the new realities of the post-Cold War environment enables the reader to gain an appreciation for the contextual discontinuities surrounding contemporary cases that require international and/or regional intervention. A must-read. Essential. * CHOICE * Combines essays on approaches to regional conflict management with cast studies on their application in different areas of the world. * The Chronicle of Higher Education *
