Six original essays, and the editor's introduction drawing them together, provide concise yet in-depth analyses of the political and functional roles of the six major organs of the United Nations. Each essay, written by an expert in his field, explains the continuity between the League of Nations and the United Nations; deals with the past and present activities of each organ; and projects what its future role may be. The material includes some non-circulating UN documents not easily accessible. A sense of balance, plus the clarity of the individual essays, makes "The United Nations" the ideal book for those interested in international organization, international relations, international law, diplomatic history, peace studies, or twentieth-century history.
