Review

"The way the book combines a conceptual approach, practical challenges and the politics of multidimensional peace operations makes it one of the most comprehensive works on the topic and therefore essential reading for all students, scholars and practitioners of peace operations."
International Peacekeeping

"The issues and discussions raised in this book are vital for anyone with a desire to understand peacekeeping operations. It offers a genuine insight into the ongoing theoretical discourse of preventing armed conflict and securing sustainable peace."
British Journal of Community Justice

"The first edition was a real gem, strong on the each of conceptual, theoretical, and case study dimensions. If anything, this new edition is even better. New chapters on gender and privatization, among others, ensure that the book remains cutting edge."
Paul F. Diehl, University of Illinois

"The second edition of Understanding Peacekeeping is a superior book and builds on the earlier pattern of solid analysis and insights as well as readability."
Thomas G. Weiss, City University of New York Graduate Center

"The United Nations Charter promised to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war. It offered half a solution by outlawing war, but did not even mention the word "peacekeeping". This thorough and accessible book shows how peacekeeping has come to define modern efforts to resolve conflict, and the promise and the pitfalls that it offers."
Simon Chesterman, New York University School of Law and the National University of Singapore

"This is an essential book both for practitioners and for students of international relations, security studies and peace studies with an interest in peace operations Ð that litmus test for the existence of a genuine post cold war international community. A thoroughly updated version of the authors′ highly regarded first edition, the book offers comprehensive coverage, lucid critical analysis of both theory and practice, detailed case studies, and a clear and accessible prose style. The overall positive conclusion is heartening."
Oliver Ramsbotham, Emeritus University of Bradford

"A thorough, comprehensive and accessible account of contemporary peacekeeping which provides a clear guide to the theoretical and ethical issues involved, as well as a fine overview of the history, politics and objectives of multilateral intervention."
Norrie MacQueen, University of Dundee

"Understanding Peacekeeping" (2nd Ed.) by Bellamy and Williams is a must-have for any student of Peace, Conflict and Development! The book provides a holistic approach of conflict and where it fits into International politics.
Under the heading "Historical Development" the book provides a comprehensive account of the history of Peacekeeping and in the part "Types of Peace Operations" provides further insight into types of intervention and by whom!
The final part entitled "Contemporary Challenges" provides a useful insight into UN Charter Chapter 8 Regionalization as well as good insight into contemporary topics such as Protection of Civilians and Gender as well as Policing defined by it's Rule of Law aspect.
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the book and will use it as a definitive reference publication in my work.

This was a suggested reading for my International Peacekeeping course but I would highly recommend it for anybody studying this area. It is a very good introductory text which explains the basic concepts and events in an easy to understand manner that allows you to proceed to more in depth materials later.
It is quite a big text but well worth reading.
