Ahead of the Curve? UN Ideas and Global Challenges Foreword by Kofi A. Annan
(Watson-Guptill Publications, 2001; 256 pp.)
"With the publication of the first volume in the United Nations Intellectual History Project, a significant lacuna in twentieth-century scholarship and international relations begins to be filled," writes UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan in the book's foreword. In Ahead of the Curve?, authors Emmerij, Jolly, and Weiss (Presidential Professor in political science and director of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies) analyze the evolution of key ideas and concepts about international economic and social development under UN auspices since 1945.
