"This book is an attempt to describe the development and expanded use by the United Nations Security Council ... of its legal authority to deal with threats to the peace. It is not a broad treatise on the political role of the Council ... Rather, the Book reflects my experience and perspective as an attorney in the U.S. State Department ... when my colleagues and I in the Office of the Legal Adviser resorted again and again to the legal authority of the newly renascent Security Council to help policymakers deal with the crises of the post-Cold War period"--Preface, p. xiii.
