Winning the War on War does what no other book has attempted, providing a synoptic view, and narrative, of the slow but successful evolution of UN peacekeeping. It takes an unusual and unorthodox approach that works very well indeed.” – Paul Kennedy, Professor of History, Yale University and author of The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers

“Professor Goldstein has written a novel, highly informative, and exceedingly valuable book.” – David Hamburg, President Emeritus, Carnegie Corporation of New York; former president, AAAS

“A highly readable account of the nature and problems of peacekeeping… an important contribution to public understanding of international affairs.” – Brian Urquhart, Former Undersecretary-General of the UN; author of Ralph Bunche: An American Life and Hammarskjöld

“Joshua Goldstein… tells the untold story of how we seem to be winning the long-term fight against war, and why. His book should be required reading for policymakers and the media.” -Nils Petter Gleditsch, Peace Research Institute Oslo

“A surprising study that suggests warfare is decreasing …. Optimistic, useful history of diplomacy as counterweight to brutality.” –Kirkus

“The most important political book of the year.” -Gregg Easterbrook, author of The Progress Paradox
