n Conflict Trends - Understanding Peacekeeping, by A.J. Bellamy, P. Williams and S. Griffin : book review

Volume 2005, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1561-9818


Bellamy et al start their book with a quote by Alan James: "the fullest perspective on peacekeeping...is one which places it firmly in the context of international politics." Understanding Peacekeeping provides a comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of contemporary peacekeeping and attempts to contextualise peacekeeping in both the historical and contemporary international political systems. The authors argue that peacekeeping is "contemporary international society's most sustained attempt to manage violent conflict" and that understanding the theory and practise of peacekeeping should therefore shed "significant light upon important trends and developments in global politics."
