The Spoils of Peace
This book sets out the first comprehensive overview of the nature of the post-Cold War order. It argues that this order should be understood as a kind of peace settlement. How harsh was it, and what were its main provisions? The nature of the 'peace' is traced through detailed studies of the settlement in Europe, and in other regions. It develops a fresh way of looking at the global economy, international security, and the agenda of liberalism and human rights - all as aspects of the peace set in place at the end of the Cold War.
