Críticas:

'Hilde F. Johnson was appointed head of the United Nations Mission to South Sudan following that country's independence in 2011. She brought more experience in Sudanese and South Sudanese affairs to that job than most diplomats and NGOs who came to the country following the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement that ended Sudan's second civil war in 2005. An academic, an humanitarian, a former Norwegian government minister, and a diplomat involved in the CPA negotiations, she was well acquainted with the outstanding issues of the peace agreement and the Sudanese and South Sudanese personalities involved. Her tenure as head of UNMISS was not without controversy, as she records here. But this is more than an autobiographical memoir. It is a sharp analysis of South Sudan's launch into nationhood, based on her insider's knowledge as an active participant, and buttressed by extensive independent reporting by academics, journalists and NGOs. She got to know well many of the prominent personalities in South Sudan's on-going political crisis, and she has left perceptive descriptions of the competent and incompetent, the well intentioned who lacked the will to bring about necessary reforms, and the totally self-serving chancers whose main goal in independence was self-enrichment. The challenges she faced as head of mission were not all generated by South Sudanese. She also had to contend with a remote UN bureaucracy, slow to respond to new emergencies, as well as self-publicising and uncooperative NGOs. For anyone involved in South Sudan now who wants to learn lessons from past failures in order to avoid them, this book is essential reading.' - Douglas H. Johnson, Fellow of the Rift Valley Institute and author of South Sudan: A New History for a New Nation

Reseña del editor:

In July 2011, South Sudan was granted independence and became the world's newest country. Yet just two-and-a-half years after this momentous decision, the country was in the grips of renewed civil war and political strife. Hilde F. Johnson served as Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Mission in the Republic of South Sudan from July 2011 until July 2014 and, as such, she was witness to the many challenges which the country faced as it struggled to adjust to its new autonomous state. In this book, she provides an unparalleled insider's account of South Sudan's descent from the ecstatic celebrations of July 2011 to the outbreak of the disastrous conflict in December 2013 and the early, bloody phase of the fighting. Johnson's frequent personal and private contacts at the highest levels of government, accompanied by her deep knowledge of the country and its history, make this a unique eyewitness account of the turbulent first three years of the world's newest - and yet most fragile - country.
