Written by best-selling author Edward C. Luck, this new text is broad and engaging enough for undergraduates, sophisticated enough for graduates and lively enough for a wider audience interested in the key institutions of international public policy.

Looking at the antecedents of the UN Security Council, as well as the current issues and future challenges that it faces, this new book includes:

  • historical perspectives 
  • the founding vision
  • procedures and practices
  • economic enforcement
  • peace operations and military enforcement
  • human security
  • proliferation and WMD
  • terrorism
  • reform, adaptation and change.
