the United Nations by Bonta
The United Nations has been
in existence for more than a half-century, but its origins and objectives
remain misunderstood by many Americans. This book, by THE

the United Nations goes beyond the public relations campaign of the UN
to examine the hard reality of the UN system—and its dangerous
objectives. (2003, 151pp, pb)
