Oxford marks the 50th anniversary of the United Nations with a comprehensive and entertaining history that introduces readers to the work of the UN and helps them understand its first half century of achievements, challenges, and disappointments. The story of its creation, a look at its internal structure, its work in international peace and economic development, and an introduction to UN-related organization (UNESCO, the World Health Organization, etc.) are presented in a clear blending of fact and human experience. Sidebars show the UN in action, and appendices, chronology, further reading lists, and index make this an impressive reference and resource for the entire family.
