United Nations, divided world : the UN's roles in international relations by Maurice Bertrand ( Book )
40 editions published between 1988 and 2000 in English and held by 1,334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book, highly praised as an authoritative assessment of the United Nations and its place in international relations, brings together distinguished academics and senior UN officials in a clear and penetrating examination of how the UN has developed since 1945. It examines the UN's various roles in addressing long-standing and difficult problems in the relations of states in such fields as international security, human rights, international law, and economic development. This extensively revised, updated, and expanded edition takes into account a wide range of developments in a world which remains very much divided: the rapid expansion of UN peacekeeping and election-monitoring activities; the consequences of the collapse of communist rule in eastern Europe and the Soviet Union; the 1990-1 Gulf conflict and its aftermath; attempts at settlement of many regional conflicts; UN involvements in fractured societies, including Cambodia, Somalia, and former Yugoslavia; and the increased focus on the political and resource limits of the UN's capabilities. This edition also takes full account of new sources, writings, and debates. There are four completely new chapters, by Patricia Birnie (environmental protection), Sally Morphet (peacekeeping), Brian Urquhart (post-Cold War security), and Peter Wilenski (the UN's structure). An appendix contains the full text of Secretary-General Boutros-Ghali's important report, An Agenda for Peace, to which he has added an introduction for this book. United Nations, Divided World is also a key reference work. The appendices include a bibliography and the complete text of the UN Charter, with all amendments. They also include lists of member states and their assessed contributions, Secretaries-General, UN peacekeeping and observer forces, and judgments and opinions of the International Court of Justice

The International politics of the environment : actors, interests, and institutions ( Book )
10 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The most pressing environmental issues, such as global warming, ozone depletion, water and air pollution, deforestation, and the loss of biodiversity generate enormous tasks for science, technology, and economic and social organization. But the seriousness and global scale of these problems also pose new challenges for international relations and demand new forms of co-operation between states. Is such co-operation possible? How can states negotiate workable international environmental agreements and implement them effectively? This book brings together leading specialists to assess the strengths, limitations, and potential of the international political system for global environmental management. Overview chapters examine the processes of international environmental negotiation, law-making, and regime formation, and explore the difficulties of implementation and enforcement. Experts close to particular institutions consider the environmental and developmental roles of the United Nations, the World Bank, and the European Community. Other chapters explore the conflicts of interest between states, especially between North and South, the increasingly central role of NGOs, and the problems of economic analysis and decision-making in the face of uncertainty, with particular reference to global climate change. Case studies of Brazil, Japan, and the United States explore critical factors influencing international environmental policy. This collection provides an authoritative and timely analysis of the political, economic, and moral issues at stake in international environmental co-operation
Climate finance regulatory and funding strategies for climate change and global development by Richard B Stewart ( )
14 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Preventing risks of severe damage from climate change not only requires deep cuts in developed country greenhouse gas emissions, but enormous amounts of public and private investment to limit emissions while promoting green growth in developing countries. While attention has focused on emissions limitations commitments and architectures, the crucial issue of what must be done to mobilize and govern the necessary financial resources has received too little consideration. In Climate Finance, a leading group of policy experts and scholars shows how effective mitigation of climate change will dep

The Wars of the Romans : a critical edition and translation of De armis Romanis by Alberico Gentili ( Book )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and Latin and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Was the Roman Empire just? Did Rome acquire her territories through just wars, and did Rome's rule exert a civilizing effect, ultimately beneficial for its subjects? Or was Roman imperialism a massive injustice - the bellicose conquest and absorption of countless peoples and large swaths of territory under false pretences, driven by greed and a lust for domination and glory? In The Wars of the Romans (1599), the important Italian jurist and Regius Professor of Civil Law at. Oxford University Alberico Gentili (1552-1608) argues both sides of the debate. In the first book he lays out the case ag

Legal positivism as normative politics : international society, balance of power and Lassa Oppenheim's positive international law by Benedict Kingsbury ( )
4 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While concluding that the extent to which Oppenheim consciously accepted such a political and jurisprudential understanding of international law remains speculative, the author contends that mainstream positivism has had more enduring appeal because it has been at least sub-consciously open to such readings."--Editor
