About the book
This essential reference work offers a comprehensive account of one of the most innovative, multifaceted and successful operations ever undertaken by the United Nations - the United Nations Operation in Mozambique (ONUMOZ). A combined effort of peace-keeping, humanitarian aid and electoral assistance, ONUMOZ helped the Mozambican people establish a solid foundation for a peaceful future following a devastating civil conflict. For the first time, the texts of nearly 100 key documents relating to the operation have been gathered in a single volume. Complementing the documents is an extensive introduction by Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, which provides an overview of the Organization's contribution to the historic transformation. Also included are indexes and a detailed chronology of events.
