The United Nations Since 1945: Peacekeeping and the Cold War by Norrie MacQueen
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the first introduction to the United Nations covering the entire postwar period. It combines a history of the UN with a broader account of east-west diplomacy during the Cold War and after. Norrie MacQueen begins by looking at the formation, structure and functions of the UN. Then, within a chronological framework, he assesses its contribution to international security from the emergence of the UN's peacekeeping role in 1945-56 right through to UN operations in the 1990s in Angola, Somalia and Bosnia.
