This important new volume brings together a remarkable international group of senior theorists and practitioners to address ways in which the United Nations can play an important and effective role in keeping the peace and preventing international armed conflict. It features contributions by the Legal Adviser to the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs (an experienced UN diplomat), one of the Canadian Army's most experienced international peacekeepers, one of the American military's most experienced peacekeepers (a four-star general who now serves as Commander in Chief of Central Command), a retired Canadian officer who has trained more international peacekeepers than anyone in the world, an American legal scholar who served for two terms as the first Chairman of the Board of the U.S. Institute of Peace, and the dean of American political scientists specializing in International Organizations. Anyone interested in the subject will benefit from their insights.
