The Oxford Handbook on the United Nations is an authoritative, one-volume treatment of sixty years of history of the United Nations, written by over forty scholars, analysts, and practitioners writing sometimes controversially, but always authoritatively on the key topics and debates that define the institution. Citations and suggested readings contain a wealth of primary and secondary references to the history, politics, and law of the world organization. This Handbook includes a clear and penetrating examination of the UN's development since 1945 and the challenges that it faces in the twenty-first century. The Handbook also contains appendices of the UN Charter, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the Stature of the International Court of Justice.

Keywords: institution; history; politics; law; world organization; development; twenty-first century; UN Charter; Universal Declaration of Human Rights; Stature of the International Court of Justice
