Military Intervention after the Cold War · The Evolution of Theory and Practice
By Andrea Kathryn Talentino

For hundreds of years, military intervention in another country was considered taboo and prohibited by international law. Since 1992, intervention has often been described as an international responsibility, and efforts have been made to give it legal justification. This extraordinary change in perceptions has taken place in only the space of a decade.

“Talentino does a wonderful job of outlining the theory and applying its central tenets to a wide range of ethnic conflicts. International humanitarian workers, policymakers, military leaders, and government officials will find the book useful.”
