Choice Review

Unfortunately, the need for multinational peacekeeping operations continues to grow, necessitating a third revision and expansion of this work, which first appeared in 1996 (2nd ed., CH, Jun'04, 41-5669; 1st ed., CH, Apr'97, 34-4211). In this third edition by Mays (The Citadel), the updated introductory essay, the chronology, and the appendix are as well done and as helpful as they were in the first edition. The dictionary entries themselves are extensive and quite well written. The excellent select bibliography of English-language material is thorough, as far as it goes. The introduction to the bibliography discusses Internet resources; although some such resources are included in the volume, more needs to be done with them. This reviewer was pleased to see that the minor problems of the first edition with regard to see references and cross-references seem to have been corrected. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-level undergraduates; general readers. S. J. Stillwell Jr. University of Arizona
