Description

Brigadier Michael Harbottle, author of one of the seminal books on UNFICYP’s involvement in the Cyprus problem in the 1960s, and anecdotal work on peace- keeping in general, died recently. The book that survives him, although published in 1970 by Oxford University Press, still has much to teach academics and practi- tioners and contains insights on UN peacekeeping in general, despite its apparent focus on the military and peacekeeping aspects of the Cyprus problem. The book provides an insight into the genesis and development of what is today, a vital part of our armoury against conflict. When the book was written, peacekeeping was a relatively new and untested “… method of containing, and settling conflicts between states in the age of world-wide interdependence.”1Today peacekeeping is much maligned and misunderstood but no lessvaluable.
