The United Nations and Human Rights, 1945-1985
David P. Forsythe analyzes the changes that have occurred on the subject of human rights at the United Nations during the past forty years. He contends that the UN record is not as negative as some U.S. officials have suggested, and he stresses the long-term socializing and legitimizing roles of the UN on the subject of human rights.
