This second edition of the Encyclopedia of the United Nations updates the editors' single-volume work from 2002 with over 100 new and revised entries, including those on the African Union, Hans Blix, conflict diamonds, Darfur, human trafficking, the Millennium Project, al-Qaeda, and the Volker report. Political scientist Pubantz and historian Moore, who previously collaborated on a textbook on the UN, have assembled more than 500 A-to-Z entries, generally a page or longer in length; a 20-page bibliography with suggested readings arranged by topic; and a collection of appendixes that make up half of the second volume. These appendixes cover several significant documents, including the UN Charter, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, important UN resolutions, and selected Conventions and Declarations. There is also a list of important UN web sites for readers to access more information. The black-and-white illustrations are included selectively.
