Deliver Us from Evil. Peacekeepers, Warlords, and a World of Endless Conflict.

New York. Simon & Schuster. 2000. Stock ID #176011

447pp, index, closed tear dustjacket, very good copy.

A finalist for the Samuel Johnson Prize, the UK's most prestigious non-fiction award, Deliver Us From Evil is a dramatic, behind-the-scenes investigation into how the West, led by the United States, has attempted to deal with the complexities of the post-Cold War world. Taking readers to Kosovo, Cambodia, Rwanda, Nigeria, Iraq, and other places torn apart by ethnic conflicts, famines, and other crises and to deliberations at the UN, Shawcross argues that, despite good intentions, intervention can not succeed when there is no peace to keep, no right side, and no infrastructure in which to sow the seeds of order. Integrating the stories of humanitarian workers and peacekeeping troops with his own incisive observations, Shawcross provides a disturbing new perspective on modern war.
