"With works already in print on conflicts in Afghanistan, the former Yugoslavia, Korea, and Northern Ireland, the Roots of Modern Conflict series, as all the ABC-CLIO series, is an excellent collection of reference works for the general population. . . . The series format, consisting of a preface that outlines the issues and importance, the alphabetically arranged encyclopedia entries, epilogue, detailed chronology, appendixes, glossary, index, and extensive bibliography, are all well done. Unlike many encyclopedias whose entries are supplied by a large number of contributors, all elements of this volume are completed by a single author who brings his impeccable credentials to the task." - American Reference Books Annual
". . . it is the only encyclopedic source of its kind and is recommended for large public libraries and academic libraries." - Reference & User Services Quarterly
