The Politics of International Intervention: The Tyranny of Peace by Mandy Turner

This book critically explores the practices of peacebuilding, and the politics of the communities experiencing intervention.

The contributions to this volume have a dual focus. First, they analyse the practices of western intervention and peacebuilding, and the prejudices and politics that drive them. Second, they explore how communities experience and deal with this intervention, as well as an understanding of how their political and economic priorities can often diverge markedly from those of the intervener. This is achieved through theoretical and thematic chapters, and an extensive number of in-depth empirical case studies.

Utilising a variety of conceptual frameworks and disciplines, the book seeks to understand why something so normatively desirable - the pursuit of, and building of, peace - has turned out so badly. From Cambodia to Afghanistan, Iraq to Mali, interventions in the pursuit of peace have not achieved the results desired by the interveners. But, rather, they have created further instability and violence. The contributors to this book explore why.

This book will be of much interest to students, academics and practitioners of peacebuilding, peacekeeping, international intervention, statebuilding, security studies and IR in general.
