"Since the end of the Cold War, the United States and the international community have been confronted by countless conflicts - civil, ethnic, religious, separatist, and others - for which our existing tool-kit was inadequate. As the distinguished authors in Strategies of Peace make clear, peacebuilding today requires comprehensive, far-sighted, and sustainable policies that respond to the defining characteristics of the early 21st century: interdependence, dynamism, and complexity. This remarkable and fascinating volume is essential reading for students, scholars, and practitioners."
--Lee H. Hamilton, President and Director, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
