Preface by Boutros Boutros-Ghali, former Secretary General of the United Nations.
Soldiers for Peace also examines the many operations of the United Nations since the end of the Cold War, from Bosnia to Somalia to the former Yugoslavia. A splendid collection of up-to-date essays?many published here for the first time?this volume gathers together the work of such well-known writers as award-winning Time essayist Lance Morrow, noted military historian Rod Paschall, and former New York Times United Nations Bureau Chief Paul Lewis. Together, the essays cover every aspect on the operations of the United Nations, from the personal to the global, from the past to the present.
Personal experiences throughout the text make Soldiers for Peace both an objective historical examination of United Nations operations and a subjective, lively, eye-opening account of life in a peace-keeping zone. In addition, evocative black-and-white photographs from UN archives and various news services and specially drawn maps complement each essay.
