THE UNITED NATIONS

A major book on the United Nations Organizations, in that its author Dr. Evatt, inside what he is writing about, and- as defender of the small nations viewpoint, and Australia's aggressive Minister for External Affairs -- he speaks vigorously to the point. Its chief value, however, is as a handbook on the formation, workings, achievements, shortcomings and future -- rather than as a philosophical treaties. The significance of the U.N.O. formation during wartime- its advance over ""rehearsals"" Oaks, Yalta, Moscow -- criticism of the dominance of the Big Four, and of the of power and the veto, particularly by Russia- the American-French proposals for use of veto only in specific cases- all this, added to the historical value, should make this small volume provocative and informative for all aware world-citizens.
