Reviews

"Much has been written about peacemaking but little about the actual experiences of peacemakers themselves. Ways Out of War provides valuable insight into the challenges that contemporary peacemakers face and how ten leading peacemakers responded to those challenges in the Middle East and the Balkans." - Richard Caplan, professor of International Relations, University of Oxford

"A wonderful collection featuring rewarding essays on the efforts of ten diplomats to end conflicts in the Middle East and in the Balkans...Unlike other studies on conflict resolution which are dry as dust, Ways out of war offers a lively and vivid picture of peacemaking " - Ahron Bregman, Department of War Studies, King's College London
