After World War I, the League of Nations assigned the German colony of Namibia to Britain, which passed it to South Africa as a "trophy" for the country's support during the war. The League mandate was to prepare the country for independence, but South Africa showed no sign of working toward that goal. The resulting clash led to 70 years of complicated diplomacy.
This book is an in-depth analysis of the efforts undertaken by representatives of the United Nations, Namibia, and South Africa assisted by the international community, the Organization of African Unity, and Western powers during the struggle for self-rule in Namibia from 1920 to 1990. This classic example of conflict resolution techniques provides a useful template for conflict negotiation around the world.
