Book Description

November 10, 2000 0813397502 3rd
Providing a comprehensive and contemporary examination of the United Nations, the authors use a thematic approach to explore the UN's role in three core issues in international relations: international peace and security; human rights and humanitarian affairs; and building peace through sustainable development. This new edition is revised substantially to take into account recent events, including the aftermath of September 11th, the War in Iraq, and the beginnings of the international criminal court.

Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The end of the bipolar world order as embodied in the cessation of the Cold War competition between the United Nations and the former Soviet Union has found the United Nations at a pivotal point in history. The authors, all with academic and practical UN experience, examine how Moscow's new willingness to work more cooperatively within the UN has both changed Washington's posture toward the multilateral institution and made a definite impact on the overall international political climate. Most of the book covers three key issues: international peace and security; human rights and the growing influence of nonstate actors; and sustainable development/ecodevelopment. The authors skillfully analyze the UN's future in its ability to create new organizational mechanisms to deal effectively with the changing nature of conflict, which is steadily shifting from interstate wars to intrastate insurgencies. Appendixes include the UN charter and additional readings. Recommended for academic and larger public libraries.
