Show synopsis The United Nations is an upper-division analysis of the history, processes, structure, and functions of the United Nations. It is intended for courses on international organizations, usually titled The United Nations, International Organization, International Development, or Conflict Resolution. The most successful one-volume text on the United Nations in the academic marketplace, it provides a comprehensive treatment that is adaptable to a variety of course approaches. The third edition does not alter the organization of the previous editions; no less significant, the basic historical material that made up the core of the first two editions remains intact in this latest rendering. Nevertheless, the book has been revised from cover to cover, redrafted to reflect significant changes in the world after the Cold War and the effect of those changes on the character and work of the United Nations.
