Book review of ‘How peace operations work’ in Political Science Quarterly

Review of ‘How peace operations work: Power, legitimacy, and effectiveness’ by Lise Howard in Political Science Quarterly.

Whale’s cross-disciplinary analysis provides an excellent typology for understanding the crucially important role of legitimacy in peace operations’.
