" Richard Holbrooke does for diplomacy what Indiana Jones does for archaeology . . . a cliffhanger." --USA Today

Chosen by The New York Times as one of the Best Books of the Year, To End a War is a brilliant portrayal of high-wire, high-stakes diplomacy in one of the toughest negotiations of modern times. A classic account of how foreign policy is made in Washington, its lessons go far beyond the boundaries of the Balkans and provide a powerful argument for continued American lead- ership in the modern world.

" A compelling account of lockup, great-power diplomacy. . . . To End a War is a riveting book." --Time
" A superb book, one that is clear and honest." --Newsweek
