Comments Freedom's Battle: The Origins of Humanitarian Intervention

  • John Hopkins

    Here is an enlightening and valuable history that should be disturbing to those who cheered President Trump's America-first-and-only nationalism. It shows individuals of courage and vision doing battle with inertia and narrow concepts of national interest that so often have overshadowed humanitarian concerns. I also enjoyed learning more about the role that an emerging free press played in the a great debates of the Victorian era. I'll be looking for Professor Bass's latest work for help in unde [...]

  • Fredrick Danysh

    An academic dissertation on what some call humanitarian intervention and others could call imperialism. A century of intervention by the major world powers are discussed.

  • Dmytro

    The author demonstrates that humanitarian intervention is not a modern invention, but it has roots that go at least as deep into 19th century politics and international relations. Three historic cases are analyzed: Greek War of Independence (1821-1832), when an Allied force of British, French and Russian vessels defeated an Ottoman armada in the Battle of Navarino; expedition of Austrian, British, French, Prussian and Russian forces into Syria during the 1860 Druze–Maronite conflict; and Russo [...]

  • Corin

    I just started this book, but his opening premise put me off a bit. While I understand his point that humanitarian intervention is not a new thing, using the Victorian Era as some kind of guiding light seems far-fetched both because it was also an era of colonialism, and because the world was so different then that there is simply no comparison. Perhaps humanitarian intervention is more controversial now because, with ostensible aggressor and aggressee living next door to each other and oftentim [...]

  • Elizabeth

    Reviews four instances of actual, near or pretend 'humanitarian intervention' in the 19th century (Greece, Syria, Bulgaria, Armenia - some reflection on Cuba), both as lessons for today and to suggest that such action is hardly a new idea.Nice to read some well-researched, non-contemporary case studies, but unimpressed with Bass's conclusions, which are mostly (a) obvious, (b) irrelevant to contemporary global order, or (c) contradictory. Might have been more useful as a mediation on norm entrep [...]

  • Walt

    Gary Bass has written an innovative book that broadens the idea of humanitarian intervention. Though we might like to regard contemporary anti-genocide campaigns as unique achievements of our times, Freedom's Battle offers a striking and original argument that activists and politicians of the 19th century paved the way with a series of interventions to stop the slaughter of innocents. Bass's new and provocative reading of 19th-century political history teaches us how to better react to the genoc [...]

  • Margaret Sankey

    Purporting to "shatter" the misconception that humanitarian intervention was invented by Jimmy Carter, this thoroughly unnecessary book drags through the 19th century with glosses of the Greek Rebellion, Bulgarians, the Crimean War and Armenians, "proving" that because the British and the French needed the Ottoman Empire, their interventions were actually totally philanthropic on behalf of beleaguered people--some of whom weren't even Christians! They didn't have ulterior motives! See, everyone [...]

  • Ann

    The historical part - humanitarian interventions and wars in the 19th century - was interesting. But the modern part - the lessons of the 19th century and how they can be applied today - got a little preachy.

  • Lisa

    my professor!

  • Khorberg

    Is a good historical overview, but neglects to address the issue of how lessons of 19th century humanitarianism can be applied today.
