This text examines conflict in the Third World and its implications for American foreign policy-making. It includes discussions of ethnic and regional conflict, insurgency movements, drug wars and terrorism, and it provides case studies of the Shining Path Movement in Peru and Operation Desert Storm in the Gulf War. Snow takes a politically moderate view that is primarily concerned with the implications of each conflict for US and international security. Other books by Donald M. Snow include "The Last Frontier: An Analysis of the Strategic Defence Initiative" (with Gary L. Guertner) and "National Security: Enduring Problems of US Defence Policy".
