The set generallySince the publication of its first edition in 1950, the Annual Review of United Nations Affairs has stood as the authoritative resource for scholars, students, and practitioners researching the latest developments at the United Nations. From introductory articles on particular topics, prepared byexperts on the relevant United Nations bodies, to the full-text presentation of reports and resolutions and the helpful subject index, ARUNA provides a comprehensive tour of each year's UN actions and debates. The expert selection of documents by Joachim Muller and Karl Sauvant and the topic-basedorganization of those documents make any researcher's task much easier than the vast searching and sorting required by the UN's website. The series' topic-based organization of the materials and subject index lend invaluable guidance to all researchers. Beginning with the 2010/2011 edition, detailedcommentaries on the various UN bodies by experts on the relevant topics were also added to each annual edition, and the analysis provided in these commentaries has helped to make ARUNA a more complete resource for anyone engaged in research on the activities of the United Nations.ARUNA presents comprehensive documentation of the work of the UN on an annual basis, starting in September of each year with the beginning of the regular sessions of the General Assembly. Coverage of and commentary on the UN's key organs are provided, including the General Assembly, the SecurityCouncil, the Economic and Social Council, the International Court of Justice, and the UN Secretariat. In addition, selected reports of intergovernmental bodies and expert groups are included. ARUNA occupies a special place in the publications on the work of the UN, as it allows readers to obtain anoverview of the principal developments in its key organs. This makes it an important reference source for policy-makers and academic researchers.
