Reviews

“. . . a masterful effort at melding theory and policy. One the important benefits is to move the study of peacekeeping into an arena where we can identify situations where a Third World state—in this case, Nigeria—utilizes peacekeeping in a region of its own interest to advance its foreign policy goals, in large part by strengthening its own national security instruments.” – Dr. Gardel Feurtado, The Citadel

“There is no other publication on this subject that examines this important case in such detail and with such theoretical vigor.” – Dr. Stephen Burgess, United States Air War College
