Review quote

Jeong's rewarding framework for creating and analyzing postconflict peacebuilding strategies is illuminated by rich illustrations drawn from a wide range of recent efforts... Penetrating insights are also provided on the complex challenges confronted by postconflict peacebuilders. - Chadwick F. Alger, Ohio State University; "Splendid... a masterful, comprehensive assessment of peacebuilding in contemporary international relations. The combination of overarching conceptualization and detailed case-specific discussions enables the reader to arrive at a new understanding of both the role of peacebuilding in the field and the ways in which it is actually handled." - Juergen Dedring, New York University
