About the product

The civil war, the consequent famine and the collapse of governmental authority in Somalia led to a United Nations operation in Somalia with no precedent in the history of the Organization. This publication is a comprehensive account of that experience in which the United Nations Operation in Somalia and the Unified Task Force (led by the United States of America) carried out a broad mandate involving peace-keeping and peace-enforcement, as well as the provision of humanitarian aid and the promotion of national reconciliation. This volume includes more than 100 key documents relating to these efforts, an extensive introduction by Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali and a detailed chronology.
