Book Description:
Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed (...) A peace based exclusively upon the political and economic arrangements of governments would not be a peace which could secure the unanimous, lasting and sincere support of the peoples of the world, and the peace must therefore be founded, if it is not to fail, upon the intellectual and moral solidarity of mankind.

So states the Constitution of UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. Its purpose was defined as: "to contribute to peace and security by promoting collaboration among nations through education, science and culture in order to further universal respect for justice, for the rule of law and for the human rights and fundamental freedoms which are affirmed for the peoples of the world, without distinction of race, sex, language or religion, by the Charter of the United Nations." Its clearly lofty goals were ratified and accepted by twenty nations in 1946, with the current membership now nearing two hundred. Over a near half-century of existence, UNESCO has made contributions across several disciplines and fields of international concern, from economic development projects to multinational conferences. It publishes serials and provides grants for study. Although some criticism has been leveled at the organization for being too intellectual and not concerned enough with concrete progress, UNESCO has been invaluable as a think tank and source of ideas for improving the welfare of people across the globe. While the practicality of some of its goals may be called into question, there is no doubt of their well-intentioned origins.
This book offers a substantial and carefully selected bibliography of books and literature about UNESCO, its history, mission, and future prospects. Further access is then provided through author, title, and subject indexes. With the importance of global cooperation to deal with international crises never having been more clear, this book is an essential reference tool for anyone hoping to stay on the cusp of one of the world’s most longstanding multilateral organizations.
