Among the challenges covered in this year's book are: the mass uprisings in the Middle East; a look at Iran's suspected quest for nuclear weapons; how international experts are trying to prevent funding of terrorists in Somalia; international aid programs in food-short developing nations; and international efforts to carry out free and fair presidential elections in crisis-torn countries.
Other articles look at a religious-inspired scare campaign in Nigeria that helped fuel a resurgence of polio in 20 countries, general global health issues, global population growth, and opinions on the position of UN Secretary General.
The book includes 37 essays written by veteran diplomats, current and former UN officials, technical experts, academicians, and journalists.
"A Global Agenda" (ISBN: 978-0-9845691-3-7) retails for about $20 and is available at the UN Book Store and online at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and Powell's.
