Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"The way the book combines a conceptual approach, practical challenges and the politics of multidimensional peace operations makes it one of the most comprehensive works on the topic and therefore essential reading for all students, scholars and practitioners of peace operations."
International Peacekeeping

"The issues and discussions raised in this book are vital for anyone with a desire to understand peacekeeping operations. It offers a genuine insight into the ongoing theoretical discourse of preventing armed conflict and securing sustainable peace."
British Journal of Community Justice

"The first edition was a real gem, strong on the each of conceptual, theoretical, and case study dimensions. If anything, this new edition is even better. New chapters on gender and privatization, among others, ensure that the book remains cutting edge."
Paul F. Diehl, University of Illinois

"The second edition of Understanding Peacekeeping is a superior book and builds on the earlier pattern of solid analysis and insights as well as readability."
Thomas G. Weiss, City University of New York Graduate Center

"The United Nations Charter promised to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war. It offered half a solution by outlawing war, but did not even mention the word "peacekeeping". This thorough and accessible book shows how peacekeeping has come to define modern efforts to resolve conflict, and the promise and the pitfalls that it offers."
Simon Chesterman, New York University School of Law and the National University of Singapore

"This is an essential book both for practitioners and for students of international relations, security studies and peace studies with an interest in peace operations Ð that litmus test for the existence of a genuine post cold war international community. A thoroughly updated version of the authors′ highly regarded first edition, the book offers comprehensive coverage, lucid critical analysis of both theory and practice, detailed case studies, and a clear and accessible prose style. The overall positive conclusion is heartening."
Oliver Ramsbotham, Emeritus University of Bradford

"A thorough, comprehensive and accessible account of contemporary peacekeeping which provides a clear guide to the theoretical and ethical issues involved, as well as a fine overview of the history, politics and objectives of multilateral intervention."
Norrie MacQueen, University of Dundee

Présentation de l'éditeur

Peace operations are now a principal tool for managing armed conflict and building world peace. The fully revised, expanded and updated second edition of Understanding Peacekeeping provides a comprehensive and up–to–date introduction to the theory, practice and politics of contemporary peace operations.

Drawing on more than twenty–five historical and contemporary case studies, this book evaluates the changing characteristics of the contemporary environment in which peacekeepers operate, what role peace operations play in wider processes of global politics, the growing impact of non–state actors, and the major challenges facing today s peacekeepers. All the chapters have been revised and expanded and eight new chapters have been added.

Part 1 summarizes the central concepts and issues related to peace operations. It includes a new discussion of the theories of peace operations and analysis of the emerging responsibility to protect norm. Part 2 charts the historical development of peacekeeping from 1945 and includes a new chapter on peace operations in the 21st century. In Part 3, separate chapters analyze seven different types of peace operations: preventive deployments; traditional peacekeeping; assisting transition; transitional administrations; wider peacekeeping; peace enforcement; and peace support operations. Part 4 looks forward and examines the central challenges facing today s peacekeepers, namely, globalization, the regionalization of peace operations, the privatization of security, civilian protection, policing and gender issues.

The second edition of Understanding Peacekeeping will be essential reading for students and scholars of peace and conflict studies, security studies, and international relations.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very informative. 24 avril 2014

I read this book as a part of a course about UN's Peacekeeping and to that course, this book was perfect. The book gives a very good insight into all parts of peacekeeping operations and is not so difficult to read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Outstanding Brick of Knowledge 13 mars 2012
Par KRoy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Bellamy and Williams are extremely smart dudes, and very knowledgeable when it comes to Peace Operations. Virtually every subset of Peace Operations is covered in this book in some amount of detail, and the writing is clear and concise (you'll understand why I call it "Peace Operations" and not "Peace Keeping" when you're done with the book). Understanding Peacekeeping is informative and easy to understand, even for the informed layperson (which is what I am). I don't have a degree in politics or international relations -- I'm a computer science and math guy -- and yet I couldn't put this book down. Understanding Peacekeeping is a page-turner.


Easy to understand
The paper feels really good
1 billion citations, so you can find more reading if you need to
Broad coverage of topics


You'll impress your friends with all your worldly knowledge, which might make them jealous
The book is a brick. If you want to carry it everywhere (which I basically do), you'll need to start working out
