As religiously grounded moral arguments have become ever more influential factors in the national debate-­particularly reinforced by recent presidential elections and the creation of the faith-­based initiative office in the White House-­journalists' ignorance about theological convictions has often worked to distort the public discourse on important policy issues. Pope John Paul II's pronouncements on stem-­cell research, the constitutional controversies regarding faith-­based initiatives, the emerging participation of Muslims in American life-­issues like these require political journalists in print and broadcast media to cover religious contexts that many admit they are ill-­equipped to understand.

State failure, ethnopolitical war, genocide, famine, and refugee flows are variants of a type of complex political and humanitarian crisis, exemplified during the 1990s in places like Somalia, Bosnia, Liberia, and Afghanistan. The international consequences of such crises are profound, often threatening regional security and requiring major inputs of humanitarian assistance. They also may pose long-­term and costly challenges of rebuilding shattered governments and societies. A vital policy question is whether failures can be diagnosed far enough in advance to facilitate effective international efforts at prevention or peaceful transformation. This volume of original essays examines crisis early warning factors at different levels, in different settings, and judges their effectiveness according to various models. Top contributors offer answers along with analyses as they move from early warning to early response in their policy recommendations.
