Less than five miles from Ground Zero in Manhattan sits an international hotbed of anti-Americanism.
The United Nations was created after World War II to promote peace and international understanding. But over the years, and today more than ever, the U.N. has failed to achieve its original mission. It has failed to address the most dangerous threats facing the civilized world, refused to condemn terrorist acts, encouraged America's enemies, and supported some of the world's most oppressive governments, all while wasting billions of dollars.
As veteran reporter Eric Shawn of Fox News Channel points out, the U.N.'s iconic skyscraper is where our so-called allies all too often undermine the United States and our vital interests. And for the honor of hosting our adversaries in our own country, Americans pay a whopping 22 percent of the U.N.'s bloated budget.
The U.N. Exposed will give you a rare insider's tour of the United Nations, focusing on many disturbing aspects that have been ignored by the mainstream media. You will learn, for instance:
As Shawn declares in his introduction, "I am disgusted by the fact that the altruistic efforts of so many U.N. staff members are undercut by the greed, corruption, and ineptitude of the bureaucracy they serve."

"Eric Shawn makes a persuasive case that the U.N., while founded with noble intention, has drifted dangerously astray and desperately requires meaningful reform."
-Rudolph W. Giuliani, former mayor of New York City
"If any journalist can expose the U.N. with wit, style, and common sense, it's Eric Shawn. He's a pit bull with a pen!"
"The United Nations organization has become like one of the banana republics which dominate so many of its sessions and committees... corrupt, hypocritical, undemocratic, and unstable.... Eric Shawn has been brave enough to wield one of the first shovels among the ruins of the status quo."
"Eric Shawn is one of those rare newspeople who takes the trouble to get the whole story and understands the import of what he learns.... This book must be read by those who have dismissed all of the previous discussions as overblown rhetoric. Here are the facts; we cannot ignore them."
-Former senator Jesse Helms
"A scorching indictment of the U.N. by a journalist who has done as much to expose the puffed-up incompetents and frauds of Turtle Bay as anyone."
-Rich Lowry, editor, National Review
"I have criticized the UN on many occasions, calling it a cesspool and a monument to hypocrisy..... Eric Shawn has written a superb book that objectively lays out its many faults and failures-a desperately needed step in the right direction."
-Edward I. Koch, former mayor of New York City
"Eric Shawn's passionate, scrupulous, comprehensive reporting from the United Nations headquarters... leads the global media like the lead dog of the lead team on the Iditarod."
-John Batchelor, host, The John Batchelor Show
"You want to know the who, what, when and why about the U.N., how it's failed us, and how it's killing us? ...You must read this book."
-Colonel David Hunt, author, They Just Don't Get It
