United Nations, Divided World Summary


United Nations, Divided World: The UN's Roles in International Relations by Edited by Adam Roberts (Montague Burton Professor of International Relations; Fellow of Balliol College, University of Oxford)

An appraisal of the United Nations, and rigorous examination of possibilities for change, this book has been updated, and contains five new chapters, one by the new Secretary-General of the UN, Mr Boutros-Ghali. It examines the UN's various roles in addressing long-standing and difficult problems in the relations of states in such fields as international security, human rights, international law and economic development. This edition takes into account a wide range of developments in a world which remains very much divided: the rapid expansion of UN peacekeeping and election-monitoring activities; the consequences of the collapse of communist rule in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union; the 1990-91 Gulf conflict and its aftermath; attempts at settlement of many regional conflicts; UN involvements in fractured societies, including Cambodia, Somalia and former Yugoslavia; and the political and resource limits of the UN's capabilities. It also takes full account of new sources, writings and debates. "United Nations, Divided World" is also a reference work. The appendices include the complete text of the UN Charter, with all ammendments. They also include lists of member states and their assessed contributions, Secretaries-General, UN peacekeeping and observer forces, and judgments and opinions of the International Court of Justice. The book should be of interest to: teachers and students of international relations, international politics, international law, post-1945 international history; and officials and members of bodies such as UN associations, institutes of international affairs and organizations concerned with human rights. Adam Roberts is the editor of "Documents on the Laws of War" (with Richard Guelff) and "Hugo Grotius and International Relations" (with Benedict Kingsbury and Hedley Bull). Benedict Kingsbury is the editor of "The International Politics of the Environment" (with Andrew Hurrell).
