From Rhodesia to Zimbabwe: The Politics of Transition
From Rhodesia to Zimbabwe: The Politics of Transition
By Henry Wiseman and Alastair M. Taylor
Pergamon Press (for the International Peace Academy), 1981, 170 pp

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.
