Book DescriptionThis is a timely work which explores the validity of rational and subjective approaches to conflict resolution, considers the value of international law and organizations for addressing complex social phenomena, and outlines a structural approach to international conflicts. In addition it extends the analysis of conflict transformation to new issues on the international agenda, such as antagonism between urban and rural areas and threat to the environment.

Books By Author Raimo Vayrynen
Waning of Major War, Paperback (February 2005)
This book is a systematic effort by leading international scholars to map the trends in major-power warfare and explore whether it is waxing or waning. The main point of departure is that major-power war as a historical institution is in decline. This does not mean, though, that wars between states are in general disappearing.
Prevention of Humanitarian Emergencies, Hardback (December 2001)
Since the end of the cold war, civil wars and state violence have escalated, resulting in thousands of deaths. This book provides a toolbox for donors, international agencies and developing countries to prevent humanitarian emergencies. The emphasis is on long-term rather than mediation or reconstruction after the conflict ensues.
War, Hunger and Displacement, Hardback (October 2000)» View all books by Raimo Vayrynen
