Focusing on the legal rather than political aspects of the United Nations, White (international organizations, U. of Nottingham) evaluates the goals, purposes, and values of the UN system, analyzes the institutional machinery created to fulfill those purposes, examines the implementation of the organization's goals, and comments on the UNOs effectiveness in the key areas of security, justice, human rights, the environment, and economic development. White intends this academic text to provide a useful basis from which to consider the long-term effects of recent dramatic world events, and the responses of the international community.
