 “My UN bible. Linda Fasulo knows all the right questions and brings back all the answers readers need to know to navigate the UN.”—Olivia Ward, Toronto Star

 “The perfect guide to the global work on peace, development and human rights. It is ‘hands on’ and practical.”―Jan Eliasson, former UN Deputy Secretary-General

Prominent NPR journalist Linda Fasulo’s guide to the United Nations has established a reputation as the most lively, authoritative, and insightful book on its subject. The fourth edition comes at a time when nuclear proliferation has moved to the top of the Security Council’s agenda, followed closely by the Syrian crisis, the effects of climate change, and international terrorism. Thoroughly revised and updated, with many new profiles and interviews with the organization’s current diplomats, this edition remains an indispensable resource for anyone wishing to understand the role and structure of the UN.

Linda Fasulo is a longtime independent reporter for National Public Radio and is based at the United Nations. She previously worked as UN correspondent for NBC News, MSNBC, and U.S. News & World Report.
