Inhaltsangabe: Thoroughly rewritten and revised, this new edition provides nearly 6,000 A-Z entries that shed light on this complex institution. In addition to articles explaining essential concepts and philosophies, readers will find an all-new set of entries on peace-keeping activities, along with full coverage of every international treaty since the founding of the League of Nations, with generous quotations or full text for all key treaties, conventions, pacts, protocols, and declarations. Extensive cross-referencing and a thorough analytical index help users to navigate the many acronyms and multiple names of documents and organizations.

Endorsed with a foreword by current U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, this is the most comprehensive, detailed reference to the U.N. ever published.

From Booklist: This reference was originally compiled in 1975 by Ozmanczyk, a Polish correspondent, author, and politician. English editions appeared in 1985 and 1990. This third English edition has undergone substantial revision, including changes in format. Many articles relating to the post-Second World War era have been dropped as not being as relevant today. The arrangement has been changed to letter-by-letter alphabetization, and there is now a single index at the end of volume 4.

The encyclopedia has approximately 6,000 entries ranging from one sentence to many pages in length. The editor states in the preface that the cutoff date for updating material was December 31, 2001, but we found many citations to information well into 2002 (e.g., Timor, East and Trachoma). Some discrepancies still show up in the text even after being criticized in previous editions (e.g., under the Ireland entry, Gill History of Ireland is cited wrongly). There are entries on individual countries, diseases, geographical locations, weapons, international terms, and excerpts and full text of important treaties and documents. For example, the full text of the 1968 Nonproliferation Treaty is given. There are no biographical entries in this work. Most entries include bibliographic citations to other sources, many of them foreign-language materials. Assisting users of this reference is a 51-page alphabetical list of entries at the front of volume 1 and a 144-page index at the end of volume 4.

Numerous references provide information on international organizations. Although there is some duplication among these works, a random sampling showed the Encyclopedia of the United Nations and International Agreements covers organizations not listed elsewhere. In addition it has terms and treaties that are not listed in other works. It is more scholarly and detailed than Facts On File's one-volume Encyclopedia of the United Nations (see above), and large academic and public libraries will want to seriously consider it. RBB
