Written by best-selling author Edward C. Luck, this new text is broad and engaging enough for undergraduates, sophisticated enough for graduates and lively enough for a wider audience interested in the key institutions of international public policy.

  • historical perspectives 
  • the founding vision
  • procedures and practices
  • economic enforcement
  • peace operations and military enforcement
  • human security
  • proliferation and WMD
  • terrorism
  • reform, adaptation and change.
