Illuminating the limits and possibilities of preventive diplomacy, Abiodun Williams traces the course of UN peacekeeping in Macedonia_the vital link in the stability of the southern Balkans_from 1992 to 1999. As he shows, the Macedonia case has important lessons for using preventive action to forestall other threats to international peace and security.
