    schema:reviewBody ""Acknowledging that the development of today's international collective security system has been largely ad hoc and conditioned by a multitude of diverse interests, Richard Connaughton's groundbreaking investigation uncouples present arrangements by re-examining the early philosophies and the development of international organisations. Drawing on practical experience, Connaughton assesses the fundamentals which impinge upon today's regime of disorder, identifying new definitions, principles and key factors which influence decision making processes. In support of these conclusions, the book features detailed case studies of Iraq, Somalia, Rwanda, Kosovo, East Timor and Sierra Leone." "This realistic view of military intervention and peacekeeping provides a new perspective which promises a more rewarding future for the international security system. Essential reading for academics and practitioners of international relations and conflict management."--Jacket." ;
