Key Studies in Diplomacy MUP Series

  • Argues that the Congo crisis 1960-64 served as a lightning rod for the interaction of decolonisation and the Cold War at the UN
  • Offers a new interpretation of the role of the UN in the Congo and examines the benefits and the perils of UN agency and interventionism, which is relevant to current debates
  • Draws on a wide range of archival sources from Accra, Brussels, Delhi, London, New York and Washington D.C
  • Makes a genuine contribution to a growing field of literature on the history of international organisations and the Cold War in the Third World
