Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
This thorough study of a new, unique, and powerful political office is based on important materials not hitherto generally available—including background information supplied by Trygve Lie and other officials both of the United Nations and the League of Nations. Stephen Schwebel describes and analyzes the Secretary-General’s exercise and development of his powers in the General Assembly, the Security Council, and other organs of the United Nations; his appeals to public opinion; his behind-the-scenes negotiation with governments.
