About this product
- DescriptionThe first insider account of foreign policy battles in the Clinton Administration. To End a War is a brilliant, compellingly readable portrayal of high-wire, high-stakes diplomacy in one of the toughest negotiations of modern times. This is a classic account of the uses and misuses of American power, whose lessons go far beyond the boundries of the balkans and provide a powerful argument for continued American leadership in the modern world.
