Is the United Nations still relevant? It’s a fair question, given the 2003 American steamrolling of the UN Security Council. Beginning with the origins of the UN following the Second World War, Paul Kennedy explores the inherent and unavoidable tension between sovereignty and internationalism that defines the organization.
