CHOICE ReviewHunt (Harvard Univ.), a former US ambassador to Austria, observed the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina (BH). She also participated in projects promoting reconciliation and reconstruction in BH. An advocate for early intervention, she explains, as an insider, why the Clinton administration failed to mobilize NATO sooner than it did. This book includes an insightful critique of US policy making with a modicum of sympathy for Richard Holbrooke's substantial contributions. It is now axiomatic that the Dayton Accords, which established the state of BH, were somewhat flawed. Several compromises forged there were "toothless" and failed to create mechanisms for coordinating programs, much less enforcing agreements. Among the most questionable decisions, the US pushed for hastily organized elections that facilitated the election of chauvinistic candidates; the Pentagon also refused to vigorously pursue the most heinous war criminals. Included is a strong argument for greater participation of women's groups in peacemaking and reconstruction after mass violence occurs. The book includes many personal anecdotes and Hunt's thoughtful observations. For readers unfamiliar with the war and its aftermath, this personal yet analytic account provides a useful primer. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers and undergraduate students all levels. P. G. Conway emeritus, SUNY College at Oneonta
