Many have proclaimed the fundamentals of global security were altered by the September 11 terrorist attacks. Do these changes undercut or enhance the role of the United Nations? What do events like the role of the UN in the crisis over Iraq tell us? Here top scholars examine the role of the UN in preventing international and civil violence, arms control, deterring and reversing aggression, and addressing humanitarian crises. The chapters are concise while providing depth of understanding of the issues, positions and problems facing the United Nations and its member states in grappling with increased opportunities and threats. Their lively presentations of the drama of UN debates establish the contributions and shortcomings of global multilateralism in an era of U.S. hegemony and unilateralism.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This highly timely, first-rate volume provides a comprehensive, clear-eyed, and sober assessment of the past, present, and future roles of the United Nations in global security. The systematic analysis of what the UN has and has not been able to accomplish - and why - generates, for all students of the UN, a more realistic understanding of what we might reasonably expect of it in the future." - Michael Barnett, University of Wisconsin, Madison

"This collection of essays does justice to the complexities of the United Nations and the problematique of global security. The contributors are committed multilateralists who do not shy away from portraying the harsh realities of the world organization, warts and all. They remind us that while the UN clearly has not eliminated the scourge of war, it certainly has helped dampen violence, control arms, deliver aid to war victims, and prevent conflicts." - Thomas G. Weiss, Presidential Professor and Director, Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies, The CUNY Graduate Center

"This very high-quality book offers much more than the sum of its parts. It challenges us to think clearly and critically about the various roles of the United Nations in reducing conflict and violence. It should be read by all concerned with the future of the United Nations." - David Malone, President, International Peace Academy
