Margaret Joan Anstee Manuscript

Series consists of the manuscript of Margaret Joan Anstee’s book "Orphan of the Cold War: The Story Behind the Collapse of the Angolan Peace Process, 1992-1993", published in New York by St. Martin’s Press in 1996. The author sought the advice of Alan James regarding the shortening of the book for publication. This is the personal story of Dame Margaret Anstee's experiences as Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the UN for Angola and Head of the UN peacekeeping mission (United Nations Angola Verification Mission II (UNAVEM II)) there from February 1992 to June 1993. Formerly a colony of Portugal, Angola was awarded independence following the democratization of Portugal in 1975. After independence, disagreement emerged between Angola's main ethno-political groups which resulted in one of the most bloody civil wars the world has known. The author, the first woman to head a peacekeeping mission, intersperses personal experiences with events as they unfold, describing the sufferings of the Angolan people and analyses the reasons for the collapse of the process and the lessons for UN peacekeeping generally.
