Beschreibung

In the first book to systematically explore the linkages between war and emergency response, Hoffman and Weiss focus on the profound impact of new wars with non-state actors. The authors trace the evolution of the international humanitarian system from its inception in the 1860s through the current challenges cast by recent U.S. military action in Afghanistan and Iraq. By bringing historical perspective to bear on the mechanics of war and humanitarian action, Sword & Salve provides an essential analytical framework for grasping the nature of crises and how aid agencies can respond strategically rather than reactively to change. Students will find it a powerful tool for understanding the roles of state and non-state actors in international relations, as well as the panopoly of means and ends encompassed by contemporary humanitarianisms.

Pressestimmen

Sword & Salve is an indispensable contribution to the debate on the current circumstances and possible future of humanitarian action... -- Michael Barnett, University of Minnesota We are at a critical juncture in understanding what used to be taken for granted-namely, what humanitarianism means in times of war. Sword & Salve is an invaluable tool for scholars and practitioners... -- Roy Williams, Center for Humanitarian Cooperation The humanitarian crises of the 1990s have led to fundamentally new understandings of the responsibilities of states, the nature of sovereignty, and the duties we all have toward people in war-torn societies. Sword & Salve reflects the deepest thinking of the leading scholars on the subject and will immediately become a standard text in international studies... -- Craig N. Murphy, Wellesley College Sword & Salve is an incisive look at the intersection of the use of force and humanitarian concerns in contemporary international relations. Hard headed and challenging in its analysis, it questions whether humanitarian agencies can engage in the type of strategic thinking and institutional learning that has often characterized the better military establishments. This book is a must-read, containing a wealth of information and interpretation on international humanitarian involvement, forceful and otherwise... -- David P. Forsythe, University of Nebraska Hoffman and Weiss do an outstanding job characterizing the challenges facing these [humanitarian] actors, their responses to date, and lessons learned from previous experiences. They expertly summarize this new humanitarian landscape when they speak of Afghanistan, where they have seen 'strange and dangerous paradoxes,' including 'both cluster bombs and emergency relief rain[ing] from the sky in a color and form that were indistinguishable.' There is no easy remedy for the current crisis within humanitarianism itself, but the authors do provide a good starting point. Highly recommended.
