Editorial Reviews


"Can scholars and students of international relations and world politics concentrate their studies on a different set of theoretical questions than those that were preeminent from 1648 until the end of the Cold War? This book does an excellent job of raising that very issue, with significant contributions from case studies and, more important, interesting theoretical essays." -- American Political Science Review

International intervention made interesting! I highly recommend this book. It's a page-turner rivaling novels, yet with pragmatic significance and impact. The book covers aspects of intervention ranging from weapons of mass destruction to environmental catastrophe and human rights. When is one nation justified in their interference in another's domestic affairs? Does state sovereignty take precedence, or the global community? This book answers these questions and much more. All aspects are considered, from globalism and globalization to national autonomy. For its thoroughness and superb analysis, I rate this book five stars. Drawbacks? None, unless you're simply not interested in the topic (however, I recommend it even to the skeptic). Kudos to Lyons and Mastanduno for compiling such a masterpiece.
