An Insider's Guide to the UNBook - 2003
"UN correspondent Linda Fasulo draws on her own observations as well as on the insights of other individuals who have been active in the UN, including US ambassadors Richard Holbrooke, Madeleine Albright and John Negroponte. She explains how the UN came into existence, what governing principles guide its operation, and what it is like to be a participant. She describes the organization, responsibilities, and frequently tense politics of the Security Council. Surveying the many humanitarian, crime-fighting and peacekeeping programs of the UN, Fasulo concludes that there are important reasons for Americans to give the United Nations their support."--BOOK JACKET.
