Show Summary Details


In an anarchic world where no central authority exists that may serve as a mediator, countries and states are often forced to seek ways to manage the conflicts that arise between them. Faced with conflicts, states and countries often determine whether cooperation or conflict will serve their ends. Although countries are often faced with conflict, this does not necessarily mean war is the obvious solution. In several and many instances, wars were never seen as possible solutions. This book concludes with the findings of the four cases presented in the preceding chapters. This conclusion provides a review of the cooperation undertaken during the 1990s as well as the current state of relations between the long-standing enemies—the U.S. and Cuba. Focus is directed towards the U.S.-Cuban relations during the administration of George W. Bush. The conclusion also offers suggestions that may aid in improving the existing cooperative efforts between these countries.
