This book calls attention to the stark reality that international relief efforts are frequently threatened, despite international conventions and widespread public opinion, by the same lack of security that produces the need for such aid in the first place.

The most recent example of this is the spectre of 1.5 million Kurds fleeing Saddam hussein’s repression and the efforts of coalition military personnel to create humanitarian space.  This book is the second in a pioneering series that seeks to evaluate the potential of using international military forces in support of oft-beleaguered and frustrated humanitarian relief efforts.
