"This is an important book in an area that is rapidly becoming central to both policy and theoretical concerns, the conditions under which negotiated settlements can be reached in civil wars. Walter's distinction of three phases of settlement (negotiation, agreement, implementation) is a significant theoretical step forward."--Roy Licklider, Rutgers University

This is an important book on the conditions under which negotiated settlements can be reached in civil wars and something of a model of how social science should be done. It has been in process for a long time ... and the author has used her time well. . . . This book was worth waiting for.
