While many analysts view the war for Kosovo as a one-sided affair of passing importance, this volume insists otherwise. To a greater extent than any other episode since the end of the Cold War, the war in Kosovo revealed the distinctive attributes of a new American "way of war." In so doing, the conflict also brought into sharp focus the dilemmas -- military, political, and moral -- confronting a liberal democracy intent on wielding preeminent power on a global scale.

Editorial Reviews

Bacevich and Cohen see important problems with [the military model in Kosovo]. Andrew Bacevich and Eliot Cohen have produced the most thoughtful examination of the Kosovo war we are likely to see for some time. By exposing the reality behind the rhetoric, giving careful attention to context, and exploring the meaning in an uncompromising way, the authors show what war has become, and is likely to be, in this age of high tech, low politics, and public inattention. A sensitive and insightful appraisal... chilling in its implications.
