A comprehensive guide to the world body’s institutions, procedures, policies, specialized agencies, historic personalities, initiatives, and involvement in world affairs, The New United Nations is organized thematically, blending both topical and chronological explanations making reference to current terms and theories. The first book of its kind on the market, it presents the UN in its evolving role in this new era since the Cold War and shows its responsibilities for meeting challenges to the global community. Written in a clear, narrative style, The New United Nations discusses such topics as human rights, the new judicial diplomacy, peacekeeping, state-building, peacemaking, women’s issues, sustainable development, non-governmental actors in the UN process, the environment, disease (particularly HIV/AIDS), the role of world conferences, the global compact, and smart sanctions. An excellent reference and handbook for anyone involved in international relations.
