Each series is fully documented and placed in historical context by a recognized expert. It will be a valuable resource for libraries, students, scholars, and journalists. There is nothing comparable.

The section then has entries on various international organizations starting with the United Nations. It then provides entries for other organizations by continent (Europe, Asia, so on).
