9780847688944: The Costs of Conflict: Prevention and Cure in the Global Arena (Carnegie Commission on Preventing Deadly Conflict)

When it comes to conflict resolution, is an ounce of prevention worth a pound of cure? Leading scholars lay out an analytical and methodological framework for evaluating this question, and case studies on global hotspots from Bosnia to Somalia, Rwanda, Cambodia, and El Salvador (among others) put it to the test.

About the Author:

Michael E. Brown is associate professor and director of research for the National Security Studies Program at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University.

Richard N. Rosecrance is professor of political science and director of the Center for International Relations at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Review:

Tightly argued, well-illustrated, eminently readable. The authors confront head-on the main methodological problem, how one can foresee a developing conflict situation in time to take preventive measures. (Sir Michael Howard, president, International Institute for Strategic Studies)

Excellent scholarship, outstanding selection of cases, and well written. The issues are handled extraordinarily well and the analytical framework is applied scientifically and rigorously. This book will make an important contribution toward what will be a continuing critical debate in the years to come. (Lawrence J. Korb, Center for Public Policy Education, The Brookings Institution)

Brown and Rosecrance's edited volume is a model of structured, focused comparison across a range of case studies. The distinguished authors analyze a variety of cases of recent domestic and international conflicts. In addition to its exercise in hypothesis testing, the book offers a valuable set of case histories, complete with maps and extensive documentation. Highly recommended for upper-division udergraduates and above. (CHOICE)

Crisply and clearly written. This volume advances the debate on conflict prevention by focusing on concrete costs and benefits. (Thomas G. Weiss)
