United Nations, India and The New World Order

Jagdish P. Sharma (Author) Saroj K. Patnaik (Author) Jaya Krushna Baral (Author)
Synopsis The book is an assessment of the role played by the United Nations since its inception. It is about how the UN has operated since its foundation in 1945, its achievements, its equally notable failures and about its relevance in facing the current challenges in the context of a new global order. Above all, it is an exploration of how to view the independent character of the UN, whose place in the new millennium has not been as effective as that envisaged by its founding fathers. Some see the UN as the key to world peace, prosperity and security. Others dismiss it as a weak organization, incapable of taking serious and timely action. Neither assessment fully reflects the changing reality. This book contains an authentic and realistic assessment of the United Nations. It brings together distinguished academics in a systemic but critical account of the part the UN has played in international relations and in facing the socio-economic, political, military, cultural and ecological challenges since 1945.
