Praeger Security International,
Pub. Date:
Ballard (strategic studies, National War College) assesses the United Nations intervention in East Timor. After providing historical background for Timor's independence and UN interventions, he offers separate chapters on planning and deployment, initial military operations, and stability and nation-building activities. His narrative follows the intervention through the successful elections of 2007. He concludes with lessons concerning the necessary factors for successful interventions for self-determination, which include a modicum of security, some level of regional diplomatic consensus, a form of effective governance, the expectation of economic development, and international economic support.
