Deliver us from Evil:

Warlords and Peacekeepers in a World of Endless Conflict

William Shawcross

In this revealing account of International Peacekeeping since 1989, William Shawcross examines what lies behind decisions to intervene in crisis zones on humanitarian grounds and shows us the consequences when the troops and aid agencies move in. The author travelled to war zones and talked to global policy-makers, leading diplomats and key humanitarian aid officials first hand. He provides a fascinating portrait of Kofi Annan and explains the partnership between the UN and its various agencies and its troubled relationship with NATO and the United States in the ‘New World Disorder’.
