This article is a review of the textbook by A.I. Nikitin “International Conflicts: Interference, Peacemaking, Settlement”, dedicated to international conflicts, as well as international activities for their resolution and resolution, in the context of modern peacekeeping practice. The structure of the textbook is composed of three separate blocks with an independent educational and methodological significance: the theory of international conflicts; peacemaking: the regulatory framework, forms and methods of organizing and conducting peacekeeping operations; cases, that is, analysis of specific international and regional conflicts, arranged by region. Synthesis of these three blocks and directions provides for the desired synergistic effect. The reviewed textbook will be quite useful for a wide readership, for it is written on a high system and professional level. This is a complete, well-established work, based on a solid source base, demonstrating the author’s excellent knowledge of the methodology of political science research and a highly professional style of presenting knowledge. In addition, this is one of the first works on international conflictology, which will be in demand by everyone studying international relations and conflictology. The book fills a huge gap in the educational literature on conflictology. The level of conclusions and generalizations presented in the book corresponds to the advanced level of development of modern political science. Numerous facts, information and reference data accompanying the analysis of conflicts make the book interesting not only for students and graduate students, but also for those who already have experience with research and practical work in this field.
