Description - The No-Nonsense Guide to the United Nations by Maggie Black

Conveys the complexity of the UN, assesses its record, and considers options for reform. In the first book to distill the entire history of the United Nations into one accessible volume, Maggie Black explains how this complex organization works and explores its successes, failings, and current limitations. The book includes the creation of the UN and its early history, how it is structured, and whether it is well constituted in its functions. Black also considers possibilities for reform to make it more democratic, effective, and fit for its purpose.
