This book is out of print.

Synopsis

A member of the Commonwealth observer group during the Zimbabwe election reports how the highly disparate Zimbabwean elements were held together during the electoral process largely by the political skill and determination of the British monitors?as well as the apparent recognition by all parties that the moment was finally at hand. A highly readable account of an exemplary peacemaking process.

Review

Wiseman and Taylor have produced an extremely well-written and carefully documented book that offers a realistic appraisal of the final stages whereby power was successfully transferred from illegal white minority control to freely elected majority rule. - Smart A.
