A collaborative effort from nine authors who represent the next generation of foreign-policy analysts, Breaking the Cycle offers a new way of thinking about conflict intervention. The book develops a framework for how to intervene in a positive manner when states are plagued by violent, intergroup conflict, thereby "breaking the cycle" of continued bloodshed and failed interventions. It then goes on to explore this framework by examining nine cases of contemporary conflict intervention, in Bosnia, Chechnya, El Salvador, Gaza/Palestine, Haiti, Nagorno-Karabakh, Rwanda, Somalia, and Tajikistan. In analyzing these case studies within the context of such a framework, the book lays out how intervention can - and cannot - prevent or mitigate violence and reestablish the political, economic, and societal enfranchisement on which multi-ethnic and multi-religious societies depend.
