About this book

Analysing the issues of language that faced international forces carrying out peace operations in Bosnia-Herzegovina in the 1990s, this book examines how differences of language were an integral part of the conflicts in the country and in what way the multinational UN and NATO forces faced their own problems of communication and language support.

Reviews

'Language mediation for peacekeeping forces is an important field, but one that has hitherto attracted little academic scrutiny. This excellent and appealing book helps put that balance right.' - Translation Studies
