Biografie (woord)

Thomas G. Weiss is Presidential Professor at the City University of New York s Graduate Center and Director of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies.


"I salute this book because it helps us to understand the crucial importance of the UN in tackling the considerable challenges facing the world today. Tom Weiss has engagingly and honestly asked a very tough question – Would the World Be Better without the UN? His negative reply is an indispensable guide for anyone worried about the future of the planet and of the UN."
Kofi Annan

"If you can only read one book on the UN, this is it: Why the UN matters, what it needs to do better, and what we need to do to make that happen."
Craig Murphy, Wellesley College and University of Massachusetts
