The Oxford Handbook on the United Nations
(Oxford University Press, 2007)
An authoritative, one-volume treatment of sixty years of history of the United Nations written by over forty distinguished scholars, analysts, and practitioners. Citations and suggested readings contain a wealth of primary and secondary references to the history, politics, and law of the world organization. Between two covers, there is a clear and penetrating examination of the UN's development since 1945 and the challenges that it faces in the twenty-first century. This key reference work also contains appendices of the UN Charter, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the Statute of the International Court of Justice. This volume is intended to shape the discipline of UN studies, and to establish itself as the essential point of reference for all those working on, in, or around the world organization. Thomas Weiss is Presidential Professor of political science and director of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies at the Graduate Center.
