Required Reading for Anybody BEFORE they express an opinion on the United Nations.
on March 29, 2014
Bought this as a recommended reading item for a political science class in International Law and Institutions. The author, Linda Fasulo, may be familiar to many as one of National Public Radio's correspondent to the UN, and she does a good job of explaining what the UN is, and what it is NOT.
Many Americans have strong feelings about the United Nations, but all too few of them really understand its charter and purpose, its organization, the rules under which it operates, and its constraints. This concise, well-written introduction should be required reading for anybody who decides to comment on the UN.
