New and Forthcoming

The United States and Coercive Diplomacy Engineering Peace
The Military Role in Postconflict Reconstruction
Colonel Garland H. Williams

Analyzes the postconflict reconstruction gap in Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan and shows how military engineering brigades accompanying peacekeeping contingents can restore vital infrastructure and social institutions.


Getting In: Mediators' Entry into the Settlement of African Conflicts cover Getting In
Mediators' Entry into the Settlement of African Conflicts
Mohammed O. Maundi, I. William Zartman, Gilbert M. Khadiagala, and Kwaku Nuamah

This penetrating study of successful mediation in a half-dozen violent conflicts across the African continent focuses on a hitherto neglected dimension of mediation and the motivations of the parties in conflict—and of the mediators themselves—in initiating mediation.


Grasping the Nettle cover Grasping the Nettle
Analyzing Cases of Intractable Conflict
Chester A. Crocker, Fen Osler Hampson, and Pamela Aall, editors

Some conflicts seem destined never to end. What lessons—aside from the apparent futility of mediation—can such dismal situations offer? As the distinguished contributors to Grasping the Nettle make plain, this is not nearly a rhetorical question. Unyielding conflicts offer numerous insights—not only about the sources of intractability but also about such facets of mediation and conflict management as how to gain leverage, when to engage and disengage, how to balance competing goals, and who to enlist to play supporting roles.


Hungry for Peace cover Hungry for Peace
International Security, Humanitarian Assistance, and Social Change in North Korea
Hazel Smith

Drawing on impressive scholarship and extensive firsthand knowledge of humanitarian relief efforts in North Korea, Hazel Smith provides an eye-opening account of the famine that devastated the country in the 1990s and of the international rescue program that Pyongyang requested and received.


Recently Published

Mediation in the Hardest Cases

A hands-on guide for mediators and as a powerful argument for students of conflict management that intractable conflicts are not beyond the reach of mediation.


The United States and Coercive Diplomacy Engaging Eurasia's Separatist States
Unresolved Conflicts and De Facto States
Chester A. Crocker, Fen Osler Hampson, and Pamela Aall

Spotlights the political, military, and economic dynamics that drive the unresolved conflicts in South Ossetia, Abkhazia, Transnistria, and Nagorno-Karabakh and evaluates options for resolving the status of the de facto states.
