Product Overview

"This is a sprawling tale told with great energy, verve, and insight. Mazower offers an original and disturbing picture of the ideological foundations of the great sacred cow of postwar international institutions. "No Enchanted Palace" will be a much discussed volume in what is likely to be a continuing debate over the future of the United Nations."--Sunil Khilnani, author of "The Idea of India"

"This is a superb, highly readable account of the ideas and some of the events that informed the creation and early history of the United Nations. "No Enchanted Palace" is an engaging and penetrating work, and a timely reminder of the need to think historically about the UN and its place in world affairs."--Peter Wilson, London School of Economics and Political Science
