Editorial Reviews


Africa is where the UN peacekeeping action is, and no one is better placed than Adekeye Adebajo to examine the shibboleths about calculations by the great powers and by African states, large and small, to enter the fray. His history and analysis are essential reading. --Thomas G. Weiss, CUNY Graduate Center

Adebajo s book clearly identifies the most crucial domestic, regional, and international factors that make peace operations in Africa a success or a failure. It is an essential tool for academicians and practitioners who want to learn from the past and work for the future. --Aldo Ajello, EU Special Representative for the Great Lakes Region

Adebajo clearly demonstrates how the great powers can make or break particular UN peace operations. His book will not make for comfortable reading in Western capitals, but it offers some sensible conclusions about how better operations might be forged in arguably their most difficult crucible. --Paul D. Williams, George Washington University
