Pivotal Deterrence and the Kosovo War: Why the Holbrooke Agreement Failed
Timothy W. Crawford examines the failure of NATO’s Kosovo policy in the months preceding the air war against Serbia in March 1999. He argues that the real challenge was not just to deter Belgrade from attacking Kosovar Albanians. It should also have been to deter the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) from guerrilla tactics aimed precisely to provoke Serb attacks on civilians in order to trigger a NATO intervention.

pp. 499-523

Ending Welfare As We Know It: A Reform Still in Progress
Demetrios James Caraley summarizes the political and social dynamics that brought about the repeal of Aid to Families of Dependent Children (AFDC) and analyzes the effects of the new Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program over its first four years. He considers possibilities for further changes in cash assistance for poor families during the program’s necessary reauthorization in 2002.

pp. 525-560

Elections Online: Assessing Internet Voting in Light of the Arizona Democratic Primary
Rachel Gibson provides evidence for the main arguments made for and against Internet or I-voting. These range from normative criticism about the rise of “pushbutton” democracy to more optimistic expectations about increased participation and improved efficiency. The arguments are confronted with evidence from the 2000 Arizona Democratic primary election where I-voting was used as one method of ballot casting.

pp. 561-583

Rethinking Human Security
Gary King and Christopher J. L. Murray note that many attempts to ensure the territorial security of nation-states through military power have failed to improve their total human condition. In response, the international community has moved to combine economic development with military security and other basic human rights to form a new concept of “human security.” Unfortunately, by common assent the concept lacks either a clear definition or any agreed upon measure of it.

pp. 585-610

Blairism Brazilian Style? Cardoso and the "Third Way" in Brazil
Timothy J. Power analyzes the Cardoso experiment in Brazil through the lens of so-called Third Way politics. He demonstrates that while President Fernando Henrique Cardoso’s Party of Brazilian Social Democracy (PDSB) has been the only major Latin American political party associated with the transnational Third Way debate, it has deviated in several important ways from recent European efforts to modernize social democracy.
