Product description


So what is the United Nations? What are its component parts and how do they operate? Who owns the organisation and to whom is it accountable? What are its true capabilities? This No-Nonsense Guide provides an excellent start to answering those questions, and many others...Maggie Black has written a number of No-Nonsense Guides to international issues, as well as books on water, development and children's rights. Her straightforward, readable approach to the United Nations as it is in real life provides a valuable opportunity to comprehend the gap between the reality and the perception of the UN, and what may be needed to make it effective in the most difficult areas of international misunderstanding. I hope that as many people as possible will read it...Sir Jeremy Greenstock, former UK Permanent Representative to the United Nations

About the Author

It includes the UN creation and early history; how it is structured and whether it is well constituted in its functions. She considers possibilities for reform to make it more democratic, effective and fit for purpose.
