Resumen

The signing of the United Nations Charter in 1945 was an unprecedented development in the history of humankind. For the first time, the world's most powerful sovereign nation states came together to create an autonomous organization designed to, in the Charter's words, "save succeeding generations from the scourge of war [and] reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights." Sixty years later, the UN still doggedly pursues that mandate, albeit not without difficulty and certainly not without criticism. In The Parliament of Man, the distinguished scholar Paul Kennedy gives a thorough and timely history of the United Nations that explains the institution's roots and functions while also casting an objective eye on the UN's effectiveness as a body and on its prospects for success in meeting the challenges that lie ahead.
