Reviews

"This book is both an advocacy for better burden-sharing peacekeeping efforts and to take better into consideration military expertise. It is indeed high time that we reconcile political commitment with military efficiency."

- Dr Alexandra Novosseloff, Senior Researcher at the Centre Thucydide of the University 2, Paris

"Political Aspirations and Perils of Security provides a significant contribution to the study of

strategic art. It breaks new ground by examining UN peace operations from a military

strategic analytical context. The book's case study approach works well and sets up the

background for the final discussion of how the UN processes address the fundamentals of strategy [...]

This is a valuable work in gathering and synthesizing key thoughts and analysis on UN

peacekeeping operations and presenting them in a clear and coherent manner."

- Professor William J. Flavin, US Army War College, Carlisle, USA
