This volume offers a comprehensive, interdisciplinary analysis of the conditions, conducts and consequences of post-Cold War Western armed interventions. It aims to identify and analyse the causes, justifications and goals of the interventions, strategies, methods and means used in these operations, as well as consequences and results of such engagements. The main objectives of the book are to provide: An assessment of the effectiveness of use of force by Western states in armed conflicts, together with the assessment of the adequacy of strategies and means chosen during these conflicts to declared objectives and justifying values; An assessment of the level of conformity of Western states' behaviours and actions in military operations with the relevant norms of international law (incl. humanitarian law) and the impact of these activities on the course and pace of development of international normative order in context of use of force and the international stability in general. In short, the book helps us to understand why military interventions of the West has happened, how and why they were executed and what were their results. Taking into account the impact of their military endeavours on the international stability and global order, condition of societies and countries where such interventions had happened, as well as on international position and internal stability of Western states as such, it offers an explanation for some of the central questions concerning current shape of the international order and power distribution on global scale. Although the central question of the book is the effectiveness of military operations of the West, the book is also an effort to look on the problem of multinational interventions in holistic way, with attention being given to links and interdependencies between different aspects of such endeavours (i.e. political, military, economic, legal). This book will be of much interest to students of military and strategic studies, conflict studies, foreign policy and International Relations.
