"This book offers insight into the pulsing heart of the United Nations - the Secretariat and its head, the Secretary-General - and examines what this organization does and why." "Behind the public face of the Secretary-General Kofi Annan and his predecessors, an active corps of officials and advisers unceasingly have applied the decisions of the debating UN. They constitute the acting UN and face ceaseless pressures and challenges. They initiate or contribute to policies and activities that affect the 191 governments represented in the "debating UN." As chief officers of the UN Secretariat, the Secretaries-General have included such innovating figures as Annan and Dag Hammarskjold."--Jacket

The United Nations and the peaceful unification of Korea : the politics of field operations, 1947-1950 by Leon Gordenker( Book )

14 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Where there has been fighting or the threat of fighting since the end of the Second World War, the United Nations has ahnost al ways been involved. Frequently that involvement has taken the concrete form of a field commission or a team of observers, made up of nationals of several countries and reporting to the General Assembly or the Security Council. Even while I write this, military observers wearing special United Nations insignia are patrolling the border areas of Syria and Lebanon. Meanwhile, observation groups with a longer history are on duty in Kashmir and along the Israeli borders. A field commission of the United Nations still remains in Korea, and others had been at work in Greece, Eritrea, Somalia and on the Hungarian border. All of them lived, worked and reported in an atmosphere of controversy. Perhaps none could have claimed that their work ended in full success. Their existence, however, suggests that the United Nations has developed a special political instrument for use in troubled areas where solutions are elusive but where danger of a spreading con flict is never distant. This study deals with the work of field com missions of the United Nations in Korea before the violence of 1950. Their work, whatever its merit, came crashing down with the North Korean attack
