An Insiders Guide to the UN by Linda Fasulo

A behind-the-scenes guide to the United Nations for Model UN students, international relations junkies, and armchair diplomats everywhere. The United Nations increasingly finds itself at the center of world events in an age of rapid globalization. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that we understand its structure and functions. In this highly readable book, a prominent news correspondent at the UN provides a colorful introduction to its activities and goals. UN correspondent Linda Fasulo draws on her own observations as well as on the insights of other individuals who have been active in the UN, including US ambassadors Richard Holbrooke, Madeleine Albright, and John Negroponte. She explains how the UN came into existence, what governing principles guide its operation, and what it is like to be a participant. She describes the organization, responsibilities, and often-tense politics of the Security Council. Surveying the many humanitarian crime-fighting, and peacekeeping programs of the UN, Fasulo concludes that there are important reason for Americans to give the United Nations their support.
