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.
