A fairly accessible overview of the United Nations and the core problems (over-empahis on national sovereignty, decentralization, and persisting political divides) that plague it as well as the "international community" as a whole. Never too scholarly, it can nonetheless get a little dry.

This book shows how institutional concerns within the international
humanitarian system - combined with the domestic context of armed conflicts -
often yield policies that do not serve the immediate requiremetns of victims of
relief, stabilization, and community reconstruction.
