Cambodia Confounds The Peacemakers, 1979-1998
by Brown, Macalister & Joseph J. Zasloff
About This Book
The peacemaking efforts in Cambodia since the dispersal of the Khmer Rouge in 1979 were the most comprehensive ever undertaken by the international community. Two seasoned observers of Southeast Asia, both US-based academics now offer a detailed account of this endeavor, including the negotiation and planning that produced the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC) and a free and fair election in 1993.
Brown and Zasloff unravel the tangled web of civil war from 1979 to the coup d'etat by Hun Sen in 1997, and the effort to hold a second election in summer 1998. They trace the years of diplomacy and warfare sustained by outside powers, the establishment of a constitutional government, and the achievements and shortfalls of the U.N. presence in Cambodia.
