14 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study first describes the system as it is, and highlights its main problems and the need for structural reforms. It describes how the system developed and why, in order to explain why it has not operated as well as it could. Next, it deals with the need for greater coherence and dynamism in the UN economic and social machinery. A particular attention is paid to the relations between the UN and the Agencies, to the reform of the inter-secretariat bonds, to the role of the UN in economic cooperation, and to the relations with the World Bank and to the IMF.--SCAD summary

The evolution of US peacekeeping policy under Clinton : a fairweather friend? by Michael G MacKinnon ( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This study examines the dynamic process through which the Clinton administration developed a policy towards UN peace support operations and goes on to explain why it was so different in substance and spirit from what was originally intended." "Based on primary sources and interviews the author examines four main factors which shaped the development of policy: the Executive branch; the bureaucracies (the State Department and the Department of Defense); Congress; and public opinion. The four factors are assessed through the lens of a 'political process model', which presents government decision-making as designed or influenced by a combination of several so-called 'power centres' or political actors, such as the executive, advisers, the media and so on."--BOOK JACKET

The Ambassadors then discuss U.S. funding and the level of U.S. influence in the U.N."
September : a history painting by Gerhard Richter by Robert Storr ( Book )
2 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gerhard Richter is one of the most influential artists of modern times. His painting 'September' is the response to the bombing of the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001, made some four years after the event. Eminent American critic and curator Robert Storr, who has had a long working relationship with Richter, explores both the painting and the event itself, as filtered through an eyewitness account of what happened in New York that day. Through description, comparative illustrations, and references to precedents in modern art, literature, and warfare, Storr analyzes the image's meaning and how it adds to a current in Richter's career that questions evocations of traumatic and controversial moments in history"--P.
