First published in 1980, this volume brings together seven case studies of regional conflicts in the Third World and great, particularly super, power involvement in those conflicts. While a number of factors relating to the origins and course of such conflicts and great power motivations are bound to be unique to each conflict, the book illustrates that there are certain common denominators, both in terms of regional conflicts per se and great power involvements in them. The book contains considerable material for further argument and deals with many of the most important and complicated aspects of contemporary international relations.
