An exceptional pick

College-level courses strong in international peace-keeping and UN history will find the sixth updated edition of Thomas G. Weiss,'s THE UNITED NATIONS AND CHANGING WORLD POLITICS an exceptional pick. It features a new chapter on evolving security operations, updates discussions of the UN's actions around the world, and discusses the global economic and financial crisis to bring all details up to date. College-level courses in political science and UN history will find this essential.

Excellent look at the UN

This book offers an excellent overview of the United Nations and the various arms that exist within its alphabet soup. The authors approach the subject through several theoretical lenses and look at world order and how the United Nations has shaped it and what that order will look like in the future with the UN. The authors break the book into three interrelated areas of security, human rights and economic development/globalization. Each area is looked at in three pieces that are broad in scope. The first is the historical perspective of how the UN has approached each area, then a current look at how the UN is doing and finally what role will the UN play in the future. In the last part it is a look at how world order is structured because of UN actions. The book is very well written and is almost a modern classic for those who study international relations and want to understand how the UN fits into the world. No matter the stance on pro or anti UN this is a great book to start understanding what role the UN plays in the world and a masterpiece of scholarship.
