The United Nations and the Maintenance of International Peace and Security
The United Nations and the Maintenance of International Peace and Security
By Leland M. Goodrich and Anne P. Simons
Brookings Institution, 1955, 709 pp.

This volume--the first in a projected series of seven Brookings studies dealing with the United Nations system--surveys the methods and processes for maintaining peace and security. The authors conclude that members of the U.N. must still rely primarily on their own strength and special defense arrangements, but that the more drastic proposals to "strengthen" the U.N. system are probably not feasible.
