Cambodian Interlude - Inside the 1993 United Nations' Election
By Tom Riddle
A Insightful Account of the Cambodian UN Election
Cambodian Interlude. Told by irreverent American United Nations Volunteer Tom Riddle, this is an inside look at the UN in the field and at life in Cambodia as the country emerges from the holocaust and international isolation. Arriving in Cambodia just a week after the UN begins what will be its largest operation ever, the author offers a rare, often humorous glimpse of the chaos behind the statesmanship and the rocky path to Cambodia's triumphant 1993 election.
"The author is successful in presenting a faithful personal narrative of the elections as seen by a low-ranking person in the United Nations effort. The book is fast, agreeable reading, and the author's picture is clear and colorful. One also gets a good sense of the mood in Phnom Penh in the heady time of the massive UN presence." Jeffrey C. Gallu, Cambodian Institute of Human Rights.
