Praise for the Annual Review:

"A vital reference for peace and conflict studies and global politics collections,"  Library Journal

“Few best-selling books read as well as this annual gem; few texts have even half as much useful and well-presented information on a crucial subject; few publications can hold a candle to the Annual Review of Global Peace Operations.” — Michael O'Hanlon, Brookings Institution

“A splendid anthology of facts and figures cleverly and attractively presented.” — Ramesh Thakur, International Journal

“This excellent book presents lots of data, solid analysis, and good graphics.” — Choice
