Summary

For undergraduate and graduate courses in International Organizations, United Nations and International Relations Theory. This text not only provides a nuts and bolts overview of International Organizations, but it examines the principles and policies of international organizations from the paradigmatic views of Liberalism, Realism, Marxism and Feminism.
