When it was first published in 1993, Keeping the Peace quickly became the definitive legal and political analysis of the powers and practices of the UN in the field of collective security. Fully updated and extensively revised to reflect the changes in the international system since 1993, the new edition includes an expanded discussion of international criminal tribunals, the development of the Security Council's powers, and the huge expansion in the number of peace-keeping forces authorized by the UN, among others. N.D. White also includes an extensive discussion of the structure of the UN, so that readers can get a sense not only of what the UN does, but how, as an organizational body, it does it.
