'...highly recommended as a brief but thorough and very intelligent guide. It describes not only what the UN did, but how it did it: how its task forces were put together (always ad hoc), how they were controlled (usually chaotically), and how they were financed (always inadequately).' Michael Howard, London Review of Books United Nations peacekeepers have been sent around the world for nearly five decades to help war-weary people maintain cease-fires, implement force separations, and most recently, make transitions to democracy. Half of those missions have begun since the end of the Cold War and have helped make the UN headline news. The Evolution of UN Peacekeeping is the first comprehensive post-Cold War assessment of this important tool of conflict containment, its recent, rapid growth and development, the factors that make it work, and the new pressures that place the whole concept at risk. Based on a two-year study for the Ford Foundation by the Henry L.Stimson Center, this book includes twenty case studies of UN peacekeeping operations from 1947 to 1991 and is suitable for use in courses on international law and organization, regional conflict, conflict management, and cooperative security.
