9781780320038: A Liberal Peace?: The Problems and Practices of Peacebuilding

Moving beyond the binary argument between those who buy into the aims of creating liberal democratic states grounded in free markets and rule of law, and those who critique and oppose them, this timely and much-needed critical volume takes a fresh look at the liberal peace debate. In doing so, it examines the validity of this critique in contemporary peacebuilding and statebuilding practice through a multitude of case studies - from Afghanistan to Somalia, Sri Lanka to Kosovo. Going further, it investigates the underlying theoretical assumptions of liberal peacebuilding and statebuilding, as well as providing new theoretical propositions for understanding current interventions. Written by some of the most prominent scholars in the field, alongside several new scholars making cutting edge contributions, this is an essential contribution to a rapidly growing interdisciplinary area of study.

Review:

'This book provides a much-needed reflection on the debate on 'liberal peace'. Rather than close the debate, it seeks to chart ways forward.' - Mahmood Mamdani, author of 'Saviors and Survivors: Darfur, Politics and the War on Terror' 'This excellent collection makes an important contribution to debates about international peacebuilding, and in particular the role of liberal democracy, free market economics, and externally-driven models of the state and society. It reflects the latest 'critical' perspectives, and yet it is constructive and balanced. It also goes beyond the standard 'liberal peacebuilding' debates in order to provide genuinely new thinking. It will be essential reading for anyone interested in these topics.' - Edward Newman, Department of Political Science and International Studies, University of Birmingham 'Finally a book where the contributors enter into a genuine dialogue about the 'liberal peace', its conceptualizations, its practical applications, and the very assumptions underlying the debate itself. This book offers a state of the art collection of different positions on the liberal peace problematic and is an essential instrument for scholars and students of international intervention.' - Laura Zanotti, Associate Professor, Department of Political Science, Virginia Tech
