The United Nations: International Organization and World Politics. Lawrence Ziring, Robert Edwon Riggs, Jack C. An analysis of the history, processes, structure and functions of the United Nations. It provides a comprehensive treatment that should be adaptable to a variety of course approaches.

THE UNITED NATIONS analyzes the history, processes, structure, and functions of the United Nations. This best-selling one-volume text provides a comprehensive treatment that is adaptable to a variety of course approaches. The basic historical material that comprised the core of the first two editions remains intact in this latest rendering. However, the book has been revised from cover to cover, redrafted to reflect significant changes in the world after the Cold War and the effect of those changes on the character and work of the United Nations.
Well-written, descriptive book that describes everything you would want to know about the UN, how it operates, how it behaves, etc.
The book was 100% in good condition! Im so happy with my purchase.
Helpful for my political science course and I am excited to learn more about the UN and how it can solve global problems.
Thanks
this book was a long-winded aimless read that added nothing to how the U.N. operates. The author seemed to have written the book with the goal of demonstrating his vocabulary and sentence structure. Forgetting to give any analysis on the U.N. and its bodies.
The revisions contained in the third edition are the work of Lawrence Ziring, professor at the University of Western Michigan. Ziring is a not an obvious candidate to be writing what is designed to be a textbook on the UN. He has publicly supported U.S. policies which are contrary to the spirit and the letter of U.N. principles, including the `humanitarian' bombings in Yugoslavia and U.S. attacks on alleged terrorist camps in Afghanistan and the biological weapons plant (which later turned out to be a pharmaceuticals factory) in Sudan. Ziring is also a member of the Atlantic Council, a Washington-based think-tank with people such as Robert McNamara and James A. Baker on its board of directors. The Atlantic Council focuses primarily upon supporting expanded roles for NATO.
As might be expected, in view of Ziring's credentials, the `textbook' is written with a consistently proUS, and generally anti-UN bias. It tends to downplay the UN's effectiveness, it attempts to demonstrate that all issues must be resolved within the context of political realism, and it implies on every occasion available that regional alternatives are to be preferred over the UN. These leitmotifs are pervasive throughout the book, with the exception of a few small patches of optimistic idealism, remnants no doubt of the second edition which Ziring failed to purge.
The biases of the book are nevertheless put forth with subtlety. When Ziring writes of the US refusal to pay its back dues to the UN, for instance, he refrains from ever using the word "refuse", opting instead for evasive locutions such as "reductions in the U.S. contributions were made necessary by subsequent congressional action...." Relative space allocations are used to forward the political agenda as much as the normative commentary: e.g. the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights is given more space than on the UN Human Rights Commission, and in the entirety of this 552 page book, there are only about two or three pages-worth of information about UN environmental initiatives. In terms of security issues, the UN is portrayed as a last ditch recourse which should normally defer to `more effective' regional organizations such as NATO and the OAS.
As an example of sophisticated pro-American propaganda, this book is high quality; as a textbook for studying the UN, however, it can only be recommended to those in search of a tool for undermining the organization's legitimacy.
For those that are curious about the UN, this book is very informative about the duties and various sectors of the UN.
