Out of Afghanistan : the inside story of the Soviet withdrawal by Diego Cordovez( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cordovez and Harrison provide the definitive account of the Soviet blunders that led up to the invasion and the bitter struggles over the withdrawal that raged in the Soviet and Afghan Communist parties and the Reagan Administration. The authors are particularly well-suited to their task: Cordovez was the United Nations mediator who negotiated the Soviet pullout, and Harrison is a leading South Asia expert with four decades of experience in covering Afghanistan. Their story of the U.N. negotiations is interwoven with a gripping chronicle of the war years, complete with palace shootouts in Kabul, turf warfare between rival Soviet intelligence agencies, and the C.I.A. role in building up Islamic fundamentalist guerrilla leaders at the expense of Afghan moderates. Cordovez opens up his diaries to take us behind the scenes in his negotiations, and Harrison draws on interviews with Mikhail Gorbachev, former Secretary of State George Shultz, and other key actors." "The Soviet intervention in Afghanistan was one of the pivotal events of recent history. Out of Afghanistan destroys many of the myths surrounding the Afghan war and will have a profound impact on the emerging debate over how and why the Cold War ended."--Jacket

UN peacekeeping : Japanese and American perspectives( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the past four decades, the United Nations has played a significant peacekeeping role based on the consent of the warring parties in Cyprus, the Golan Heights, the Congo, and other flashpoints of conflict. But the UN role in maintaining world order has been redefined and broadened in recent years to embrace peace-enforcement efforts with or without the consent of the antagonists, often in combination with traditional peacekeeping." "This dramatic change has provoked growing controversy both in the United States, hitherto the largest financial supporter of UN peacekeeping, and in Japan, where advocates of a larger Japanese global role are promoting expanded Japanese participation in UN peacekeeping missions." "UN Peacekeeping: Japanese and American Perspectives is the product of a research project co-sponsored by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington and the Research Institute for Peace and Security in Tokyo. Eight American and Japanese specialists present contrasting perspectives on such issues as the criteria that should govern UN intervention in future conflicts; the desirability and feasibility of combining peacekeeping and peace enforcement; the limitations imposed by international law on UN intervention; the record of UN intervention in key arenas of conflict, including Cambodia, where Japan has played a major role; domestic attitudes toward UN peacekeeping in both countries; and the potential for Japanese-American cooperation in UN peacemaking, peacekeeping, and peace enforcement."--Jacket

This documentary with unique footage of life in North Korea includes interviews with ordinary people and scholars, opening a window into this little known country. What is it like on the other side of the 38th parallel?

Korean endgame : a strategy for reunification and U.S. disengagement by Selig S Harrison( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Korean Endgame is the first authoritative challenge to U.S. policies in Korea designed to maintain a permanent military presence there even after reunification. Selig Harrison shows why North Korea is not - as many policymakers expect - about to collapse. And he explains why existing U.S. policies hamper North-South reconciliation and reunification. Assessing North Korean capabilities and the motivations that have led to its forward deployments, he spells out the arms control concessions by North Korea, South Korea, and the United States necessary to ease the dangers of confrontation."--Jacket
