Controlling and Ending Conflict: Issues before and after the Cold War

Synopsis

This provocative and authoritative study covers all the major aspects of conflict termination before and after the Cold War. Cimbala and Waldman, together with prominent analysts, offer different insights into the key issues and military and political strategies to end and control conflict in a radically changing world. They define basic principles and consider intrawar deterrence and various ways to control and end all types of war in an age of nuclear proliferation.

Excerpt

The extraordinary events of August 18-21 in the Soviet Union and their aftermath in the remainder of 1991 only served as an epilogue to the political turbulence of recent Soviet politics. the very identity of the Soviet Union as a political system stood in question as this book went to press. Having prepared the revelant essays months prior to this, the authors refer consistently to conditions existing prior to the abortive coup of August 1991 and the subsequent disintegration of the Communist party in much if not all of the ussr. Readers are asked to bear in mind the time warp through which Soviet and European politics have gone recently, thereby reformulating the relevant questions for war termination as all else.

Chapters in this book began as papers originally delivered at a conference on conflict termination held at Haverford College. That conference was sponsored by the Bicollege Peace Studies Program of Haverford and Bryn Mawr colleges and by Haverford's Stinnes Fund. the authors gratefully acknowledge this assistance without which this volume would not exist. Sid Waldman wishes to acknowledge with special gratitude his wife, Kay, and their children Laura and David for their support; Steve Cimbala does the same for his wife, Betsy, and their children David and Christopher. Both salute pj who was loyal and ever present.
