The United Nations : A Beginner's Guide, Paperback

The United Nations : A Beginner's Guide Paperback

Part of the Beginner's Guides series



Since its inception in 1945, the United Nations has had a powerful but controversial influence on global politics.

In this well-written and informative guide, Norrie MacQueen provides a clear introduction to its institutions, remit, personalities, and role in the modern world.

Defending it from common criticisms of bureaucratic paralysis and bias towards the developed world, MacQueen argues that its limitations are due to the complex web of national interests that it seeks to reconcile.
