United Nations has played a vital role in maintaining the world order and peace ever since its inception. The formation wasn't a cake walk and the journey it has undertaken till date has been captured vividly in this book.

The book talks about the United Nations and delves a lot deeper into the workings, the history of UN and more over it analysis UN's failure as a world organisation. The book is thoroughly researched and presented. Every chapter has multiple endnotes to add to the information. In the span of 16 chapters, the author covers almost all the topics relevant to UN. Out of the many topics discussed in this book, I loved reading about the Korea operation.

This feels more like a textbook for the students of politics and international relations than your average non-fiction political analysis. There is analysis as well as proper factual information referencing from the actual decisions and key events.
