Please see the new, replacement volume Leashing the Dogs of War . Like its predecessor,Managing Global Chaos,this comprehensive volume explores the sources of contemporary conflict and the vast array of possible responses to it. The authors'”50 of the most influential and innovative analysts of international affairs'”present multiple perspectives on how best to prevent, manage, or resolve conflicts around the world. In the five years since Managing Global Chaoswas published, the geopolitical landscape has changed in significant ways and we have learned important lessons. Turbulent Peaceunderlines the volatility and vulnerability of states and peoples in a world that is both increasingly interconnected and ever more differentiated and decentralized in its political and social structures. Four new themes emerge from Turbulent Peace:the return of geopolitics; the recognition that different societies require different peacemaking strategies; the pull and tug between conflict management and post-conflict governance issues, such as democratization; and the understanding that creating a sustainable peace is as difficult as making peace in the first place. Although this volume features many of the contributors to Managing Global Chaos(in most cases with updated and revised chapters), almost 70 percent of the contributors are new. The editors commissioned the new essays to address emergent themes in conflict analysis and management, to offer a wide range of viewpoints in contentious areas, and to respond to feedback from readers and the needs of educators. The result is a volume of unparalleled breadth and depth, an invaluable resource for teachers and students no less than for practitioners and policymakers.
