Its aim is to foster andencourage a culture of cross-professional cooperation and partnership and to generate practical recommendations that will benefit the effectiveness and legitimacy of multinational and multidisciplinary peace operations. Phase I of the project was brought to a close by a concluding report presented by the Foreign Minister of Sweden on behalf of the Project Partners to the UN Secretary-General in 2002. Partner Organizations decided to proceed witha second phase in which they would address, in more depth, some of the spe cific challenges identified in the first report. The multidimensional nature of contemporary peace operations produces a complex web of challenges, all of which demand a high level of international cooperation at strategic, operational and tactical levels. Effective cooperation and coordination among states, organizations and individuals are critical factors to success andProject Partners decided to focus on three areas: the Regional Dimensions of Peace Operations, Rule of Law, and Education and Training. The present report 'Meeting the Challenges of Peace Operations: Cooperation and Coordination' draws on the discussions and findings from seminars held between late2002 and early 2005, hosted by Partner Organizations in Australia, China, Nigeria, Sweden, Turkey, and the United Kingdom." - from the back cover.

(8),[vii]-ix,(5),[1]-340, portrait frontispiece, + 4 leaves of plates. With six maps to text. 8vo, brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine. A vo lume in the West African History Series. General editor: Gerald S. Graham. Mr Flint had previously been a professor at Dalhousie University, Halifax. Originally published in 1960. "This biography of Sir George Goldie brings to life the motives and driving energies of one of the most remarkable, and hitherto most mysterious, of the 'Empire-builders' of late-Victorian times.The great part played by Goldie in the creation of Nigeria as a British co lony is not often fully recognized or appreciated. it was he who determinedits political frontiers and the basic pattern of its administration. Throu gh the Royal Niger Company, which he founded and personally directed, he built a private empire on the Niger which became the prototype for other chartered companies in Africa. Before he died, Goldie destroyed all his papers,and refused to give out any information which would allow his biography to be written. In 1952, however, the British government opened the records of its correspondence with Goldie, and with the aid of these papers, and seve ral collections of private letters, the author has been able to examine, stage by stage, the way in which Goldie obtained a commanding position from which he often dictated the West African policies of British Prime Minsters and Foreign Secretaries. But this is not simply the story of an extraordinary Englishman and his effect on British policy. The author argues that Africans played a considerable part in shaping the extent and nature of Britishexpansion on the Niger, and he shows how Goldie utilized the political and economic rivalries between African peoples and their rulers to expand the influence of the Royal Niger Company." -from the dj.
