This book is an account and analysis of the United Nations peacekeeping operation mounted in Cambodia between 1991 and 1993 in fulfillment of the 1991 Paris Peace Settlement. Though jeopardized by lack of Khmer Rouge cooperation, the UN Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC) successfully guided Cambodia back to democracy and relative peace. Findlay reveals the successes and failures of UNTAC and draws useful lessons for future UN peacekeeping operations.

`This work provides objective and thorough analysis of the mission.' Choice `It has the special attraction of including all the relevant documents.' NOD & Conversion `Excellent new study ... a thoughtful consideration of the UNTAC years ... Findlay's book is an important first step in examining UNTACs legacy.' Asian Affairs `Findlay's book is very well researched and includes many of the major international documents on Cambodia in its appendix. It will be of interest to all those concerned with Cambodia and peace keeping operations in general.' Journal of Asian Studies `This work is based on extensive and meticulous research; it is written with great clarity; and its exposition of the lessons to be drawn from UNTAC's experience - about one quarter of the text - carry entire conviction. There is a useful documentary appendix. The book is a "must" for all students of peacekeeping.' Political Studies
