How can peace be encouraged and sustained in a violent world? For nearly half a century at the United Nations, ultimately as Under Secretary-General for Special Political Affairs, Brian Urquhart wrestled with this problem at its front lines. Managing the United Nations' peacekeeping operations in the world's hot spots - the Congo in the aftermath of Patrice Lumumba's assassination, Cyprus at the bloodiest moment of conflict between Greek and Turkish Cypriots, Kashmir, and, through the tragic cycle of four wars, the Middle East - he has tested the limits, and the possibilities, of peacekeeping in the modern world

The evolution of US peacekeeping policy under Clinton : a fairweather friend? by Michael G MacKinnon( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study examines the dynamic process through which the Clinton administration developed a policy towards UN peace support operations and goes on to explain why it was so different in substance and spirit from what was originally intended." "Based on primary sources and interviews the author examines four main factors which shaped the development of policy: the Executive branch; the bureaucracies (the State Department and the Department of Defense); Congress; and public opinion. The four factors are assessed through the lens of a 'political process model', which presents government decision-making as designed or influenced by a combination of several so-called 'power centres' or political actors, such as the executive, advisers, the media and so on."--Jacket

The Ambassadors then discuss U.S. funding and the level of U.S. influence in the U.N."
