Reviews

'Postwar peace is never easy and only rarely fully consolidated. In this important new collection of wide-ranging case studies, editors Astri Suhrke and Mats Berdal demonstrate the added-value of disaggregating peaces into four distinct categories -- peace imposed by victors, challenged by losers, accepted by parties and divided among factions. They show how each has its own challenges and why confusing them can be fatal to mitigating conflict.' - Michael Doyle, Columbia University 'This book has been sorely needed and will be widely read. It is commonplace to cite examples like El Salvador where post-war levels of violence have been high. But we have not had anything remotely approaching the systematic bringing together of evidence, historical and more recent, confirming how generalised is the phenomenon of post-war violence.' - Christopher Cramer, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London 'This volume does a superb job of investigating a question that is critically important both to scholars and policy practitioners: what causes the violence that often continues, in various forms, after the formal termination of wars?' - Roland Paris, University of Ottawa "[S]uccessfully analyses different forms of peace and provides a nuanced picture of the nature of peace in between. The book provides a good overview of the state of the art, as well as several interesting case studies. It should be of great interest to both students of peace and conflict students, as well as policy makers." - Anna K. Jarstad, Uppsala University, Sweden "The book is well constructed and logical. The reference list is extensive and is of direct benefit to students of international relations, strategic studies and political science. It is also of benefit to lecturers, seeking to provide students with a broader perspective on post-war conflict and violence." - Jack Newnham and Peter Bell, Queensland University of Technology, Australia
