This Handbook illuminates the full scope of the Organization's work through the contributions of leading analysts and scholars from every region of the world. While they offer differing perspectives, all agree on the indispensability of the United Nations as a unique instrument of service to all humankind. I commend this volume to a vide global audience as we strive together to deliver a better world for `we the peoples'.
Antonio Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations.
