Can Intervention Work?
- By: Rory Stewart, Gerald Knaus
- Narrated by: James Langton
- Length: 7 hrs and 19 mins
Rory Stewart and Gerald Knaus distill their remarkable firsthand experiences of political and military interventions into a potent examination of what we can and cannot achieve in a new era of "nation building." As they delve into the massive, military-driven efforts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Balkans, the expansion of the EU, and the bloodless "color" revolutions in the former Soviet states, they reveal each effort's consequences for international relations, human rights, and our understanding of state building.
Great Discussion, Prerequisites Required

Good but specialized
Very well informed arguments about the challenges of intervention, but probably appeals only to those with a specialist's interest in the topic.
