"[T]his is an excellent volume and should prove useful and intriguing for students of all collegiate levels, as well as for researchers, diplomats, ethicists, persons of faith, and anyone generally interested in the U.N. and international peace and security." -- Human Rights & Human Welfare "Well worth the effort to all those interested in the future of humanity. Religious dynamics shaping societies will continue to dominate conflicts and relations in the next century, and those working in the fields of intelligence, international law, military science, conflict management, and political science would all benefit from deeper understanding of these connections." -- International Journal of Intelligence Ethics
