With the end of the academic year, I have stopped blogging for the summer. Hope to resume in September. Meanwhile feel free to check out my Wars in Progress list, my recent book on the successes of peace and peacekeeping, my International Relations textbook, or my other academic work. Or the other fine IR blogs listed on this page (right side; scroll down). May we have a summer of peace, democracy, and currency stability.
