U. N. for Beginners based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
n addition to teaching me new things, 'For Beginners' books provide me with sheer reading pleasure, and this book is no exception. Before reading this book I often heard about the United Nations in the news, had some vague conception about what it is and the way it works, but never really understood the scope of its operations, or exactly how it works and why. This book revealed all this to me, and much more. From it, I learned about the history of the UN, it's charter, it's member organizations, the World Bank and IMF, peacekeeping missions, the World Court, UN personalities, ...! The author does a tremendously good job explaining all these things, without making our heads reel from the sheer amount of information. This book contains slightly fewer illustrations that the typical 'For Beginner's' book, and is crammed full of text passages, but still is highly readable and humorous. Truly enjoyable!
