Publishers Weekly, 2011-09-26 Stewart and Knaus convincingly argue for new approaches to understanding and executing political and military intervention in the modern world. Making use of firsthand experiences in Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq, the authors move beyond the philosophical models utilized by various international organizations and analyze both the efficacy and consequences of nation building. James Langton provides steady, clear narration for this audio edition. He pronounces esoteric terms and foreign phrases consistently and without hesitation. His use of emphasis focuses listener attention on important passages and guides them through complicated sections. Additionally, Langton's tone invites listeners to think about the book's arguments and assertions. Although his English accent adds zest to this rather academic exploration of international intervention, listeners without an understanding of global politics may become confused or lose interest.
