Reviews
Review Quotes
"In my opinion, there isn't another book in the field quite like Integrated Peacebuilding . The range of topics and the depth of analysis in each of the fourteen chapters is simply awe-inspiring. The book also delicately straddles development theory, international relations, and peace studies in an accessible way. A remarkable feat." --Clement Adibe, DePaul University "I have rarely seen a book that is so logically constructed and conceptually tied together as this one. I am impressed with this volume because it offers a perfect blend of academic thinking and application. It also systematically analyzes the various aspects of peacemaking, peacebuilding, and conflict resolution." --Dipak K. Gupta, San Diego State University "Words count. Definitions are important. When concepts are not clear the action that follows is not as effective as it could be. This book is a disciplined attempt to bring coherence to an emerging field. It is a must read for any student and practitioner of peacebuilding. Policymakers will be well served by taking the integrated approach suggested in these pages. All scholars will appreciate the breadth of a book that is clearly advancing our shared understanding of a dynamic field for study and practice." --Andrea Bartoli, George Mason University "This well informed and timely volume, which I strongly recommend for use in Conflict Resolution classes, reflects the new confidence and growing maturity of peacebuilding as an exciting and vitally important field of study." -- Professor Fathali Moghaddam, Editor-Elect of Peace and Conflict: Journal of Conflict Resolution "This is a well informed and timely volume, which I strongly recommend for use in Conflict Resolution classes. . . . It is ahead of its time. Well done, Dr. Zelizer." --Col.(Rtd) Dickson Swegenyi, Provincial Peace Forum-Nakuru, Kenya
