Message from the editor:
We regularly update this list of books and try and ensure there are a variety of titles to interest potential reviewers. When we receive new books they are available to members only for the first month. After that month we move the title to the list of books available to any interested reviewer.
If you are interested in writing a review of one of these titles, or would like to request another title from a publisher, please contact Michelle Filice (firstname.lastname@example.org). Reviews of any academic publication related to the field of United Nations studies, regardless of disciplinary, geographic, or chronological focus are welcomed as part of this review section if they have been published in the last 3-4 years.
Due to the high demand for books on this list we have to limit the number of reviews. Each ACUNS member is welcome to request and review up to 2 books per year, while each non-member is welcome to request and review 1 book per year.
For more information on becoming an ACUNS member please click here.
Please also consult our Book Review Submission Guidelines.
