Inhaltsangabe: Throughout the 1990s, US policymakers thought they could insulate the country from the collapse of distant states and the spread of war and disorder in some of the world's poorest regions. The attacks on September 11 2001, however, showed that dire conditions in seemingly isolated regions could become incubators for violence that hits America directly. This volume, based on Barnett R. Rubin's years of experience as director of the Center for Preventive Action (CPA) at the Council on Foreign Relations, argues that initiatives aimed at preventing regional crises must form a key part of the US global security strategy. Drawing on his experience leading CPA projects in the Balkans, Central Asia, Central Africa, and West Africa, as well as his extensive work on Afghanistan, Rubin illustrates how seemingly exotic and distant conflicts are deeply integrated into our international system through the effects of global strategies and markets. These conflicts, the author argues, are harder to contain once they flare into violence, and yet may be easier for global actors to prevent than common wisdom claims.

Über den Autor: Barnett R. Rubin is director of studies and senior fellow at the Center on International Cooperation of New York University and was the founding director of the Center for Preventive Action. He is one of the world’s leading experts on Afghanistan, and has advised both the UN and the U.S. government on this issue for many years.
