Encyclopedia of the United Nations and International Agreements: N to S
Taylor & Francis, 2003 - 2941 pages
This new edition of the comprehensive and detailed reference on the United Nations thoroughly revises and updates the 1990 edition. It demystifies the workings of this multifaceted world body with accessible articles on every country, organization, office, and department with the United Nations as well as on every nongovernmental organization, committee, and joint effort (such as peacekeeping operations) that is in any way connected to the United Nations. It also defines every international treaty since the founding of the League of Nations and gives lengthy quotations or the full text of many treaties, depending on their importance. The extensive cross-referencing should also help users navigate the many acronyms and multiple names of organizations, treaties, and meetings, and a thorough, analytical index should provide another access point.
