Reviews

[I]n this book Gilbert effectively demonstrates the limits of international intervention and encounters through the case study of post-war Bosnia and Herzegovina. The book proves to be a useful tool for current international intervention scholars...

-- "Political Studies Review"

[The book] provides detailed and far-reaching analyses that move beyond the standard critical approaches to international state-building and peacebuilding. Gilbert introduces a new level of analysis--'intervention encounter'--that provides readers with an increased analytical leverage to understand the political and social aspects of international interventions.

-- "International Peacekeeping"

Gilbert's ethnographic account advances an original analysis of the open-ended, innovative, and unpredictable unfolding of international intervention. This type of analysis is still relatively uncommon in the literature. Gilbert's effort to bring to light the power relations and changing dynamics involved in international encounters make this book compelling reading for all students of intervention.
