Abstract : The author examines the bases of American military participation in various Third World activities falling under the general rubric of peacekeeping and peace-enforcement. He considers major instances in the post-cold war world where so-called humanitarian interventions have occurred or may occur: the aftermath of the Persian Gulf War, Somalia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina and examines the effects of these actions on the principle of sovereignty. He discusses the emerging roles of peacekeeping and peace-enforcement and the conceptual and practical differences between them, and concludes with some cautionary lessons for the Army....
