United Nations Essential Documents Series

The United Nations Essential Documents Series brings together for the first time the most influential international instruments and treaties created by the United Nations since its founding in 1945. Each volume in the series presents the actual documents in full and as they originally appeared when published. A short introduction opens each volume which establishes the context for each source, provides a short history of how each of these instruments came into being, and describes the document’s impact on policymaking and positive change around the world. An invaluable resource for libraries, students, and scholars of peace and security, human rights, and development, these volumes will also serve as an essential teaching tool for those studying and writing about international relations in general and about the history of the world’s only true global organization specifically.
