Home Browse Books Book details, Elusive Peace: Negotiating an End to Civil Wars. Elusive Peace: Negotiating an End to Civil Wars. By I. William Zartman. INTERNAL CONFLICTS-civil wars-are the most difficult of conflicts to negotiate. Only a quarter to a third of modern civil wars (including anticolonial wars) have found their way to negotiation, whereas more than half of modern interstate wars have done so. About two-thirds of the internal conflicts have ended in the surrender or elimination of one of the parties involved; fewer than a quarter of the international conflicts have so ended.

X, 353 pages ; 24 cm. Elusive Peace brings together a host of international experts on area studies and conflict resolution to examine various current and ongoing cases of internal conflict worldwide. Recognizing that internal dissidence is the legitimate result of the breakdown of normal politics, the authors explore how conflicts can be resolved through negotiation rather than combat. They provide a revealing look at the nature of internal conflicts, explain why appropriate conditions for negotiation and useful solutions are so difficult to find, and offer ways of finding solutions.

A workmanlike effort, this book seeks to explain why civil wars, now the dominant form of conflict, are so hard to resolve. As in many efforts of this type, the book's real interest lies in the case studies of individual conflicts in Sri Lanka, Spain, Sudan, Ethiopia, Angola, South Africa, and so on; here they are, by and large, informative.

As the threat of superpower confrontation diminishes in the post-cold war era, civil wars and their regional ramifications are emerging as the primary challenge to international peace and security. Notoriously difficult to resolve, these internal conflicts seem condemned to escalate with no end in sight. This book recognizes that internal dissidence is the legitimate result of the breakdown of normal politics and focuses on resolving conflict through negotiation rather than combat.

Elusive Peace provides a revealing look at the nature of internal conflicts and explains why appropriate conditions for negotiation and useful solutions are so difficult to find. The authors offer a series of case studies of ongoing conflict in Angola, Mozambique, Eritrea, South Africa, Southern Sudan, Lebanon, Spain, Colombia, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines. They examine the characteristics of each confrontation, including past failed negotiations, and make suggestions for changes in negotiating strategies that could lead to a more successful outcome.
