About the Author

OLIVER P. RICHMOND is a Professor in International Relations and Director of the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of St. Andrews, UK.


'The importance of this book lies in its forensic approach to the 'liberal peace' advocated by most contemporary diplomats, NGOs, academics and negotiators. The book carries the intellectual and policy debate beyond the process of peacemaking to 'the implicit concepts of peace and their usages.' - John Darby, Professor of Comparative Ethnic Studies, Kroc Institute, University of Notre Dame, USA

'A good theoretical starting point for any student or professional looking for operational conceptualizations of peace [...] a call for a research agenda into the concept of peace and its nature [... and] a worthwhile addition to [the] curriculum.' - History, Society and Culture

'...the most theoretically powerful critique of the liberal peace of recent years' - Millennium - Journal of International Studies
