Radio UNTAC Of Cambodia - Winning Ears, Hearts And Minds
By Zhou Mei
This book offers a fascinating snapshot of Cambodia on the threshold of a new beginning. The United Nations' decision to venture into broadcasting was a groundbreaking move. Radio UNTAC became a sensation and a household name in Cambodia. The contribution of Radio UNTAC to the stupendous voter turn-out in the election cannot be quantified. It is irrefutable that radio UNTAC played a pivotal role in convincing the electorate: "Your vote is secret". For planners of future missions, there are invaluable lessons to be learned from the experience of Radio UNTAC as a peacekeeping tool. For the general reader, this book offers an alternative to the microphone account of "mission" work. In the process, it records a chronicle of a country in transition as Cambodians defied the bullets and reached for peace via the ballots.
