9780393081206: Can Intervention Work? (Norton Global Ethics Series)

Best-selling author Rory Stewart and political economist Gerald Knaus examine the impact of large-scale interventions, from Bosnia to Afghanistan.

Rory Stewart (author of The Places In Between) and Gerald Knaus distill their remarkable firsthand experiences of political and military interventions into a potent examination of what we can and cannot achieve in a new era of "nation building." As they delve into the massive, military-driven efforts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Balkans, the expansion of the EU, and the bloodless "color" revolutions in the former Soviet states, the authors reveal each effort's enormous consequences for international relations, human rights, and our understanding of state building. Stewart and Knaus parse carefully the philosophies that have informed interventionism―from neoconservative to liberal imperialist―and draw on their diverse experiences in the military, nongovernmental organizations, and the Iraqi provincial government to reveal what we can ultimately expect from large-scale interventions, and how they might best realize positive change in the world.

Review:

"James Langton provides steady, clear narration...His use of emphasis focuses listener attention on important passages and guides them through complicated sections...[his] tone invites listeners to think about the book's arguments and assertions." - Publishers Weekly

"...a fresh and critically important perspective on foreign interventions...the book's insistence on caution and humility in foreign interventions is an important contribution, which bucks conventional wisdom." - The Washington Post
