Publisher's Description

The Cold War has been followed by a decade of regional and ethnic conflicts, massacres, and forced exiles. Should America assume the role of peacekeeper and chief humanitarian in a world of endless wars and human disasters? Eminent foreign correspondent William Shawcross has spent much of his career in war zones and has had unrivaled access to diplomats, peacekeepers, and global policymakers at the highest levels, including UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, for whom he has high regard. In Deliver Us from Evil, which has a new epilogue for the paperback edition, Shawcross takes us behind the lines with him to Cambodia, Bosnia, Somalia, Sierra Leone, East Timor, Rwanda, and Kosovo to show us how complex and costly Western interventions are and how naïve are our hopes of peacemaking without bloodshed.

Editorial Reviews

John F. Matlock, Jr. The New York Times Book Review With vivid description, Shawcross gives us the context in which conflicts have arisen and unforgettable glimpses of their catastrophic impact on human lives.
Gavin Esler Daily Mail (London) Shawcross gets to the heart of...the UN and how it responds, or fails to respond, to international crises in what he calls "a world of endless conflict." Shawcross is quite simply one of the best reporters of his generation.
Joseph Nye The Boston Globe Well written and filled with troubling truths.
