Can Intervention Work?

Rory Stewart, a member of the British Parliament, discusses political and military interventions and examines what we can—and cannot—achieve through "nation building." Can Intervention Work?, written with Gerald Knaus, looks at how the massive, military-driven efforts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Balkans, the expansion of the EU, and the "color" revolutions in the former Soviet states affect international relations, human rights, and our understanding of state building.
