Editorial Reviews


‘This is a highly welcome volume by a distinguished group of scholars that provides a clear-eyed assessment of the workings of the UN Security Council. By marrying a thoroughgoing assessment of the concept of international authority, diverse theoretical perspectives, and a sharp understanding of the workings of the Security Council, this volume invites us to use the concept of authority to rethink what we think we know about the UN Security Council, and to use the UN Security Council to re-examine the nature of international authority.’

Michael Barnett, Harold Stassen Chair of International Relations, Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs and adjunct professor of political science, University of Minnesota, USA

‘A volume of thoughtful essays culminating in a stimulating chapter of conclusions by the editors.’

David M. Malone, author of The International Struggle over Iraq: Politics in the UN Security Council and High Commissioner of Canada, India
