Since the end of the Cold War, US officials have been more willing to remind allies that the US will not play the role of international policeman. Given US reluctance, the job of peacekeeping will fall increasingly to international organizations and regional alliances. In this book, Diehl examines the recent record of United Nations peacekeeping forces and develops criteria for assessing their operations. His analysis aims to provide useful guidance for the management of new hostilities in areas such as Central and Eastern Europe, where the dissolution of the Soviet Union has spawned bitter civil wars and dangerous border disputes.
