"Peace Works: America’s Unifying Role in a Turbulent World" (Rowman & Littlefield) Bosnia, Rwanda, Haiti, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria - a quarter-century of stumbles in America’s pursuit of a more peaceful and just world. American military interventions have cost thousands of lives and billions of dollars, yet positive and sustainable change remain elusive.
