About the Authors
  • At the end of the Cold War the hope was that it would be possible to reform international society and create a new world order. This book explores the experience of the United Nations in the three largest peacekeeping operations of recent years, in Cambodia, former Yugoslavia, and Somalia, to explain why it has proved so difficult for the international community to live up to this hope. The introduction explores the common themes and the major contrasts in the three operations, and each case study is accompanied by a chronology of events and a selection of relevant UN documents.

    • Concise guide to UN intervention in three of the most important recent crises in world politics
    • Experts on each region describe and analyse events, supported by chronologies and selected UN documents for student use
    • Major introductory chapter by James Mayall discussing the role of the UN in world politics and the effectiveness of recent interventionism

    'The reader is furnished both with essential background information to the conflicts and operations, as well as rigorous analysis. Throughout, the book is concise and well structured … The New Interventionism provides a useful contribution to our understanding of the functioning of the UN in the post-Cold War era, as well as a comprehensive source of reference for students, practitioners and interested parties …'. Rorden Wilkinson, Political Studies
