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. He looks at its evolution, including the conundrum of the Security Council and the often disappointing record of the UN’s human rights agenda. Compulsory reading for those who recognize that we are all global citizens in an expanding world,The Parliament of Manputs forth a provocative discussion of the present and future roles of the United Nations.
