About the product
This is an authoritative piece of work by Seymour Maxwell Finger, former United States Ambassador to the United Nations. It compares and contrasts 16 former American Permanent Representatives to the United Nations covering the period 1945-1985. He poses and answers such questions as: What kind of role should the United States play in the current United Nations? What are its policy options? What type of permanent representative can best serve such policies? What is the role of the permanent representative and his staff in developing, nurturing and executing the United States policy at the United Nations? He also discusses the type of relationship that existed between the Permanent Representatives and the Presidents that appointed them.
