    One thought on “Living with the UN: American Responsibilities and International Order”

    1. This book was enjoyable to read for the sole fact that the author maintains and very different ideological position than I. The insight into other ways of perceiving issues very well known to me was enlightening, and honestly, somewhat frightening. Overall, a good way to learn more about the role of the UN within the international system. I would not listen to the authors clear biases as to the efficacy of the organization itself, however flawed it maybe.
