Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312219946, Hardcover)

After every major war, perverse problems and heady opportunities present themselves in strange and variable mixtures. These conditions have reappeared with the end of the Cold War. Entropic forces coexist alongside integrative trends in economics and communications, while blood feuds proceed concurrently with democratic and market reforms. Under these confusing circumstances, leaders would be wise to use Confidence Building Measures, which consolidate gains while providing buffers against losses. Many tools exist to build confidence in tension-filled regions, such as inviting foreign observers to once-secret facilities, carrying out cultural exchanges, and designing cross-border economic development projects. Global Confidence Building is the first volume to examine the intricacies of confidence building around the world, highlighting both success stories and failures, and looking at crucial works in progress.
