There is an urgent need for a solution to the Arab-Israel conflict, but so far no comprehensive solution has been found. The search for a solution must be based on knowledge of the facts and of the relevant documents. There might be exist disagreement among the various parties on the facts, and the documents may be subject to differing interpretations, but it is indispensible that those who study the conflict and those who deal with it have the plain text of the basic documents readily available.
This collection includes a wide range of documents including, inter alia, texts of agreements, of official documents of the Leage of Nations and of the United Nations, of official proposals and of relevant national documents. It covers a period of almost one hundred years, but it focuses mainly on documents dating from recent decades. The editors have put together an objective collection including about ninety of the main, relevant texts, irrespective of whose claim may find support in them.
This volume will be of help to scholars and to students, to historians and to political scientists, to experts in international law and international relations, to journalists, to politicians and to diplomats. The availability of this collection may make it easier for the conflict to be studied and to be solved.

Within these pages is a veritable banquet for those who savour the politics of international security. The reader is offered factual analysis, insight, new perspectives, revisited concepts, problem spotting and recipes for solutions. Academic observers from a dozen different countries in Eastern and Western Europe and on both sides of the Atlantic subject a large number of questions of topical interest in the security field to one or other of these forms of treatment. Their debate embraces reinforcement of the European pillar of the Alliance; adjustment of the balance of responsibilities between the two sides of the Atlantic; and shoring up the transatlantic partnership and perhaps broadening it into that elusive concept, a `transatlantic community', stretching into economic and other fields. They address the perceived security vacuum in parts of Central and Eastern Europe and discuss measures to build up greater confidence between former Cold War antagonists and ways of developing in them the habits of co-operation rather than counter-operation. They draw up architectural designs for the security of the twenty-first century and grapple with the conflict of ideas circulating about the Alliance's future and particularly about its future relationship with Russia. Isolationism, nationalism, multilateralism, realism, constructivism and other -isms are helpfully put into context. Renationalisation, denationalisation and identities in formation or in decline are also investigated.

Europe and the Breakup of Yugoslavia

A Political Failure in Search of a Scholarly Explanation

Steven P. Marrone

Edited by Bryn Hughes, Charles T. Hunt and Boris Kondoch

The realm of international peace and capacity development operations is a critical and contested space. The international community has increasingly focused on this area, relying upon these endeavours to not only bring lasting peace, but also to provide sustainable development for some of the most troubled places on earth. Efforts to date have failed to meet expectations. The nexus between practitioners and those whose job it is to theorise ways to improve practice is deficient.

Making Sense of Peace and Capacity-Building Operations was derived from an international workshop which brought these often disconnected communities together. Taking on the breadth of issues across the security-development spectrum, this volume challenges much of the heretofore conventional wisdom on the topic, while also pointing to ways in which improvements can be realised in this crucial space.
Brill Research Perspectives in Diplomacy and Foreign Policy provides an open forum for reference publication, critical analysis, and cutting-edge research on contemporary issues of diplomacy and foreign policy. By emphasizing theory-practice integration, multidisciplinarity, and accessibility of content, the journal positions itself at the center of conceptual debates that frame the theory, practice, and transformation of 21st century diplomatic relations. Published in four issues per year, the journal promotes creative, problem-solving approaches for the management of peaceful change in transnational affairs as a contribution to global governance.

Each issue includes a focused monograph of between 20,000-40,000 words (50-100 pages) presenting the state of the art in a specific diplomatic area in close combination with critical analysis, research, and policy implications.

Brill Research Perspectives in Diplomacy and Foreign Policy’s primary readership includes diplomatic scholars, international relations analysts, graduate and undergraduate students of international affairs, foreign policy decision-makers, international NGOs, practitioners, and educators in diplomatic academies
