Description - Creating Peace in Sri Lanka by Robert I. Rotberg
Sri Lanka has been torn apart by a vicious civil war. The majority Sinhala and minority Tamils have killed each other with increasing ferocity. What will bring about an end to this destructive conflict, and how will the island nation heal its physical and psychic wounds following a peace? How will a sustainable peace be arranged? Can mediation help? This book of essays by Sri Lankan and Western authors examines the causes of war and the possibilities for peace. The contributors include Chandra R. de Silva, Saman Kelegama, David Little, David Scott, Donald R. Snodgrass and Jayadeva Uyangoda.
