Eight essays growing out of a two-year study centered at Yale explore the possibilities of changing the composition and procedures of the United Nations Security Council, weigh the arguments for and against reform, evaluate the various proposals that have been made in terms of who would lose power and who gain it, and offer new suggestions on how to make the body more efficient and legitimate. Some of the contributions have been published previously. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
