"Sitkowski offers a critical re-appraisal of the fundamental principles of peacekeeping, including both the largest successes (Namibia) and worst disasters (Rwanda). Drawing heavily on personal accounts, the book is solidly anchored in official primary sources originating from the UN, national governments, parliamentary inquiries (Dutch, French and Belgian) and from the International Criminal Tribunal on Rwanda. It integrates the most recent recommendations related to peacekeeping originating from High Level Panels and endorsed by Kofi Annan. Finally it exposes how the UN peacekeeping syndrome of "soldiers safety first" crept into the NATO's strategy and compromises its missions in Kosovo and Afghanistan."--BOOK JACKET.
