Format: Hardcover
The late Dr. Moynihan started something unheard of in his (pre-Kirkpatrick) era: he spoke the truth to the United Nations. In 1975 America was in retreat. It had abandoned its allies in Indochina, it had not long before prevented Israel from properly winning a war, it's president refused to meet Solzhenitsyn lest it's enemies would be distracted from meeting with Angela Davis, and it allowed with but an occasional whimper the hypocritical UN majority, either through Soviet instruction or reflex or both, to slap about America and its ideals. Then came Moynihan. For eight months he held those who castigated and damned us to account. It now seems simple good sense: those who would slaughter rival tribes in Burundi and those who operated Gulag cannot get away with UN shoe-banging in protest of America's free (and elected) association with Puerto Rico or of Israel's right to exist without its pre-schools having to hose human remains off its playgrounds. But then it was actually a big deal--the New York Times quivered whenever he approached a UN microphone. The late ambassador does not in my opinion write in a style too complex for the casual reader; in fact, his Irish wit and grasp of English make this a universal volume for anyone with an interest in foreign policy as well as those who appreciate truth telling.

if political machinations are interesting to you, then this book will wholly appease. i found it too complex for the most part from an outsider's point of view.

Interesting that he lifted the title from a book about the UN, ("A Dangerous Place - The United Nations as a Weapon in World Politics") that preceded his. How original.
