Little known outside a small community of insiders, the United Nations Association¿USA has had an impact on both the UN and the US-UN relationship far greater than its size would suggest. James Wurst explores that impact as he traces the sometimes tortuous history of the UNA-USA from its earliest days to the present. Beginning with efforts in support of the creation of the United Nations¿and covering the decades-long campaign to promote the UN to the US public, the role of Eleanor Roosevelt, the decline of popular support, Track II diplomacy with Iran and the Soviet Union, and much more¿Wurst draws on a wealth of archival material and personal interviews to tell an honest, and long overdue, story of the UNA-USA¿s persistence, problems, and achievements. James Wurst has been reporting on international affairs, and especially the United Nations, since 1977.

By 2052, with soaring temperatures, extreme storms, and rising ocean levels, climate change has ceased to be a matter for debate. Food shortages are rampant, entire nations starve, and the earth's wild places and species are vanishing. Presidential candidate George Cranston of the Federalist party is fully aware of the challenges facing the planet and determined to tackle them. Before he can do anything, however, he must defeat his rival from the dominant and corrupt Doctrinist party-a daunting task given the Doctrinists' determination to hang on to power at any cost. News of a massive, mysterious object under construction in China gives the Doctrinists a weapon to wield against Cranston, whose running mate, Dr. Lilly McDowell, began life as a Chinese orphan. His rivals assume the "Chinese Device" is a weapon. Cranston's not so sure. As the battle for the White House continues, people across the globe struggle against the consequences of climate change, including in Nigeria which is being battered from the north by the Sahara and from the south by the rising ocean, scientists in Borneo and on the Galapagos Islands fight to save their worlds, and a young American astronaut who is thrust into the middle of a global crisis. Offering a harrowing and all-too-likely glimpse of the near future, Three Degrees is a complex, character-driven novel that explores the changes climate change could bring to our world.

In Act of Creation, Stephen C. Schlesinger tells a pivotal and little-known story of how Secretary of State Edward Stettinius and the new American President, Harry Truman, picked up the pieces of the faltering campaign initiated by Franklin Roosevelt to create a "United Nations." Using secret agents, financial resources, and their unrivaled position of power, they overcame the intrigues of Stalin, the reservations of wartime allies like Winston Churchill, the discontent of smaller states, and a skeptical press corps to found the United Nations. The author reveals how the UN nearly collapsed several times during the conference over questions of which states should have power, who should be admitted, and how authority should be divided among its branches. By shedding new light on leading participants like John Foster Dulles, John F. Kennedy, Adlai Stevenson, Nelson Rockefeller, and E. B White, Act of Creation provides a fascinating tale of twentieth-century history not to be missed.
