Review: Embassy Newsweekly

"There are few defenders of Canadian peacekeeping as fierce as this author. Chair of the department of security and international affairs at the Canadian Forces College, he believes that even in the age of a Conservative government where Canadian military power is ever more readily thrown around in theatres like Kandahar and Libya, and when discussion of peacekeeping is dismissed by some commentators as archaic Canadian policy, it is possible to contribute in greater amounts to the blue berets. The book is a prescription for better, more efficient peacekeeping that countries can be proud to participate in; while raising the alarm over the relative lack of technology on missions today, the author is nevertheless optimistic that new technology is now affordable and widespread enough to employ on the field."
