Best-selling author Rory Stewart and political economist Gerald Knaus examine the impact of large-scale interventions, from Bosnia to Afghanistan. “A fresh and critically important perspective on foreign interventions” (Washington Post), Can Intervention Work? distills Rory Stewart’s (author of The Places In Between) and Gerald Knaus’s remarkable firsthand experiences of political and military interventions into a potent examination of what we can and cannot achieve in a new era of nation building. As they delve into the massive, military-driven efforts in Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan, the authors reveal each effort’s enormous consequences for international relations, human rights, and our understanding of state building. Stewart and Knaus parse carefully the philosophies that have informed interventionism—from neoconservative to liberal imperialist—and draw on their diverse experiences in the military, nongovernmental organizations, and the Iraqi provincial government to reveal what we can ultimately expect from large-scale interventions and how they might best realize positive change in the world. Author and columnist Fred Kaplan calls Can Intervention Work? “the most thorough examination of the subject [of intervention] that I’ve read in a while.”

"The book Practical Implementation in Social Work Practice: A Guide to Engaging in Evidence-Based Practice provides social work practitioners and students with guidance on engaging in the process of evidence-based practice (EBP), with an emphasis on implementation of high quality interventions. The book begins with an overview of the process of EBP, and the relationship between EBP and implementation. In subsequent chapters, readers are provided with practical tips and frameworks to support identification of evidence-supported interventions and preparation for the implementation of selected interventions in practice. Later chapters examine more closely the assessment of intervention alignment with clients and service contexts, how to determine if an intervention must be adapted before implementation, and guides readers through the adaptation of interventions if needed. Fidelity strategies are then reviewed to support the ongoing implementation of interventions at a high level of quality. Examples are used throughout the book to provide the reader with concrete illustrations of the application of more abstract concepts and each chapter includes discussion questions to guide class discussions for instructors. The book ends with a chapter on some of the future trends and continuing challenges in EBP and implementation science in social work"--

Does Foreign Exchange Intervention Work

Does Foreign Exchange Intervention Work

Following the Versailles G-7 summit of 1982, most government officials and academic analysts downplayed the potential impact of exchange market intervention unless such intervention was permitted to affect national monetary policies. This study challenges the conventional wisdom. Using previously unavailable data on daily intervention by the US Federal Reserve and the German Bundesbank, the authors find to the contrary even such "sterilized" intervention can have an effect, especially if it is known to the markets. Implications are drawn for intervention policy and its role in the international coordination process.

With the end of the Cold War has come an upsurge in humanitarian interventions-military campaigns aimed at ending mass atrocities. These wars of rescue, waged in the name of ostensibly universal norms of human rights and legal principles, rest on the premise that a genuine "international community" has begun to emerge and has reached consensus on a procedure for eradicating mass killings. Rajan Menon argues that, in fact, humanitarian intervention remains deeply divisive as a concept and as a policy, and is flawed besides. The advocates of humanitarian intervention have produced a mountain of writings to support their claim that human rights precepts now exert an unprecedented influence on states' foreign policies and that we can therefore anticipate a comprehensive solution to mass atrocities. In The Conceit of Humanitarian Intervention, Menon shows that this belief, while noble, is na?ve. States continue to act principally based on what they regard at any given time as their national interests. Delivering strangers from oppression ranks low on their list of priorities. Indeed, even democratic states routinely embrace governments that trample the human rights values on which the humanitarian intervention enterprise rests. States' ethical commitment to waging war to end atrocities remains episodic and erratic-more rhetorical than real. And when these missions are undertaken, the strategies and means used invariably produce perverse, even dangerous results. This, in no small measure, stems from the hubris of leaders-and the acolytes of humanitarian intervention-who have come to believe that they possesses the wisdom and wherewithal to bestow freedom and stability upon societies about which they know little.

Current trends reveal that increasing intensity at work has major consequences at individual, organizational and societal levels. New organizational approaches to work are needed so the balance between intensive and sustainable work can be achieved, yet there are no guiding models, theories or examples on how this can be done. In exploring the development of sustainable work systems, this book analyzes these problems, and provides the basis for designing and implementing 'sustainable work systems' based on the idea of regeneration and the development of human and social resources. Shedding light on the emerging work systems, this book describes existing problems and paradoxes. The researchers, from various academic disciplines and institutions in the US and Europe, consider the existing possibilities and emerging solutions and explore alternatives to intensive work systems.

An excellent introduction.... Readers of this journal looking for a brief but comprehensive introduction to the field of stress management will find this book to be more than adequate for this purpose. Perhaps the book's greatest strength is the way it has managed to combine insights and research from both occupational psychology and clinical psychology to tackle workplace stress. Cary Cooper would surely be pleased with the authors' efforts at what he has termed "clinical occupational" psychology' - "International Journal of Social Psychiatry " This practical guide focuses on the intervention strategies which can be employed by counsellors to help individuals suffering from emotional and physiological stresses engendered in the workplace. With key points illustrated by case studies, chapters define the nature of occupational stress and provide information about the emotional, behavioural, physiological and cognitive symptoms which can occur. The authors also discuss the factors influencing the problem: factors which can be tied to the individual, to the work setting and to the larger social context. Specific coping strategies explored are targeted both at the individual, for example relaxation training and stress management programmes, and at the workplace, for instance job redesign and career planning. Finally, methods that practitioners can use to evaluate their interventions are presented in detail.

This book bridges the gap between social work knowledge and empirically based practice. Although there is a significant need for the use of empirically tested and verified knowledge in social work practice, the empirical basis of support is nearly absent from practitioners'considerations as they make clinical decisions in routine practice. The authors advocate the development of readily available, accessible, and professionally sanctioned practice guidelines for use by practitioners, a necessity in the age of managed care and demands for greater accountability, effectiveness, and efficiency in practice. This book features a much-needed discussion of racial and ethnic differentials in relation to practice guidelines and on the relationship between practice guidelines and different aspects of service delivery.

When community and family support systems are weak or unavailable, and when internal resources fail, populations that struggle with chronic, persistent, acute, and/or unexpected problems become vulnerable to physical, cognitive, emotional, and social deterioration. Yet despite numerous risk factors, a large number of vulnerable people do live happy and productive lives. This best-selling handbook examines not only risk and vulnerability factors in disadvantaged populations but also resilience and protective strategies for managing and overcoming adversity. This third edition reflects new demographic data, research findings, and theoretical developments and accounts for changing economic and political realities, including immigration and health care policy reforms. Contributors have expanded their essays to include practice with individuals, families, and groups, and new chapters consider working with military members and their families, victims and survivors of terrorism and torture, bullied children, and young men of color.
