Editorial Reviews

Review

These two volumes form an encyclopedic study of the means of conflict prevention. The first volume examines agents and institutions, the second causes and capacities. The choice of chapters to encompass the components of the subject is careful and comprehensive, and there is much bredth and wisdom in the chapters themselves. The volumes deserve a wide and bifocal audience. For analysts, the two volumes push back the frontiers into new aspects to study; for practitioners, they show that the challenge is in applying what we know aplenty, not in hiding behind claims of ignorance... (William Zartman, Jacob Blaustein Professor of International Organizations and Conflict Resolution, School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University)

It is always a pleasure to come across volumes with the breadth and scope as the ones edited so perceptively by David Carment and Albrecht Schnabel. Their gumption illuminates the patterns of mainstreaming conflict prevention in the post-Cold War period. In this respect, these tomes are not simply a reassessment of extant analytical frameworks, but an inspiring mapping of politics and policy of conflict prevention. Thence, the two parts of Conflict Prevention are a lasting testimony of the encyclopedic endeavor to chart the gist of different conflict prevention approaches, while presenting a cornucopia of insight and best-practice. (Panorama)

The scholarship is first-rate, thorough, and comprehensive. This work will be a significant contribution to the study, training and practice of conflict prevention. . . . Overall the original evidence, comprehensiveness, and integrative nature of the work are its best features.
