"The world of peacekeeping is volatile, uncertain, and often just downright perplexing. This collection of excellently informed and refreshingly clear essays provides a sure-footed guide to this important but complex dimension of international security."--Richard Gowan, associate director for policy, Center on International Cooperation, New York University and former coordinator, Annual Review of Global Peace Operations"Peace Operations is an important addition to the peace operations literature. It is based on a comprehensive review of regional efforts in peace operations, and it develops an innovative analysis of national and regional motivations for participating in peace operations. This book makes major contributions to our understanding of these critical issues. It will be an authoritative source for scholars and students, as well as policymakers and practitioners."--Chantal de Jonge Oudraat, associate vice president, Jennings Randolph Program for International Peace, United States Institute of Peace"The contributions in this book offer problem solving perspectives on national and regional trends in peace operations that seem to be expanding in scope. In a period when peace operations are taken to mean whatever an observer wants them to mean, and when such operations are regarded as a panacea for managing crises, this book should prove valuable in contributing to knowledge about how the world order is disciplined."--Michael Pugh, professor of peace & conflict studies, Department of Peace Studies, University of Bradford"Peace Operations is one of the best books I have seen that addresses the current dramatic expansion of multiple-actor peace operations and their enormous complexity. Its in-depth analysis of regional players and ad hoc coalitions provides an indispensable resource for both policymakers and academics seeking a better understanding of this fast-moving phenomenon."--Jean Krasno, distinguished fellow, International Security Studies Program, Yale University"This volume's comprehensive presentation of data on which states and regional organizations contribute to peace operations, and how and why they do so, will be useful to both scholars and practitioners. Its truly global focus, analyzing trends not just for European and African peacekeepers, but also those from Latin America, South Asia, China, Japan, the post-Soviet states, and the Arab world, is unique."--Kimberly Marten, professor of political science, Barnard College, Columbia University"This publication represents a major contribution to the study of peace operations. Retracing the evolution of peace operations since 1945, their make-up and effectiveness it relies on the most inclusive dataset to date. Required reading for all scholars and practitioners dealing with peacekeeping."--Fred Tanner, ambassador and director, Geneva Centre for Security Policy
