Boutros Boutros-Ghali's term as United Nations Secretary-General was unique. His election in December 1991 brought him into office during the tumultuous post-Cold War years when the US-Soviet confrontation that had largely sidelined the United Nations had come to an end. Faced with a staggering array of issues that included ethnic cleansing in Bosnia, anarchy and mass starvation in Somalia, and genocide in Rwanda, he provoked the displeasure of the United States and, as a result, failed to win a second term as Secretary-General. These papers, which include speeches, statements, correspondence and reports, provide background to Boutros-Ghali's tenure and controversial ousting.
