A Business of Some Heat: The United Nations Force in Cyprus Before and During the 1974 Turkish Invasion
Cyprus, long troubled by inter-communal strife, exploded onto the world stage with the Athens-inspired coup and the subsequent Turkish invasion. This led to partition on the island, a situation complicated by the Yom Kippur War. This book examines the role of the UN as it attempts to maintain peace in Cyprus.
