Ziring (Western Michigan University) updates this fourth edition to reflect events of the past four years, including the September 11th terrorist attacks, and discusses the capacity of the UN to face the challenge of terrorism and the changing relationship between the UN as peacekeeper and as peacemaker. There is expanded material on the Secretary-General's role, collective security, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the North Korean nuclear threat, and conditions in Iraq during and after the US invasion.
