Each of these essays shows a different aspect of the dilemmas confronting humanitarian workers as well as the multiple and often incompatible tasks that fall within the range of humanitarian intervention. -- Nicholas Xenos, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
This volume illuminates what may be the challenge for the next decade, century, and millennium: closing the gap between lofty rethoric and the reality in the field. -- Diane Paul, Human Rights Watch, Brown University Humanitarianism and War Project, Jacob Blaustein Institute for the Advancement of Human Rights * International Politics *
The book is a solid contribution to the ever-growing debate on humanitarian intervention. * Journal of Peace Research *
