This book illustrates the limits to the 1990s UNTAC peacekeeping intervention in Cambodia. It demonstrates that such an approach to conflict resolution is flawed and that liberal pluralism is not necessarily a reliable vehicle for heralding change in developing societies.
It challenges assumptions regarding the inevitability of the globalization of liberalism as a means of ordering non-Western societies. It explains the failure of democratic transition in terms of the impropriety and weakness of the plan which preceded it; and in terms of the elite's traditional reliance on absolutism and resistance to the concept of "Opposition."
