Description
Watson (strategy, National War College) examines the post 9/11 American military and civilian experience with nation building, employing a broad definition of the term that encompasses stability operations, mootw ("military operations other than war"), peacekeeping, peace operations, peace maintenance, reconstruction operations, institution building, and counterinsurgency operations. She reviews cases around the world and also offers biographical profiles of significant individuals involved in American nation building. Over half the volume consists of an appendix that collects US government documents on nation building, a glossary, and a guide to further resources.
