Overview

In the 1990s the UN's potential has been reborn. Now the world must find ways to incorporate elements of that success into the UN system. No single reform or even expansion of UN military power can achieve the necessary changes; rather a series of political and military innovations are needed soon to develop a UN peace and security system. The authors make specific recommendations in the areas of the Security Council, the Military Staff Committee, the Secretary General and the Secretariat, operational elements, regional security arrangements, and financial resources. Co-published with the International Economic Studies Institute.

Editorial Reviews

Foreign Affairs
...a succinct and accurate summary....an imaginative and important contribution to the current debate.
American Bar Association National Security Law Report
...the book is well written, and most timely in suggesting a comprehensive system which could be politically feasible, militarily effective, and financially affordable.
International Affairs
...commendably detailed and comprehensive. Those who believe that the United Nations needs to be strengthened do not always address the practical aspects of the questions. This valuable and timely book, is therefore, especially welcome.
Perspective
The best exploration of how to implement the military provisions of Chapter VII of the Charter I have seen.
— Geoffrey A.H. Pearson, former Canadian Ambassador for Disarmament
International Affairs - Louis Sohn
It couldn't have been published at a more opportune time.
Perspective - Robert S. McNamara
The authors have had extensive international security experience. Their proposals, which draw on that experience, deserve serious consideration both at the United Nations and in world capitals.
Perspective - Geoffrey A.H. Pearson
The best exploration of how to implement the military provisions of Chapter VII of the Charter I have seen.
